If you serve those with a history of trauma and wish to enhance your yoga skills for this population, on and off the mat, this new certification program as a LifeForce Yoga Trauma Specialist is for you. Enhance your attunement skills, even as you learn modifications in language and practices for this population that will allow the safe release of trauma memory stored in all the koshas (physical, energy, emotional and, mental levels of existence). Learn yoga-based practices to help those suffering realize that on the deepest level of their beings, they remain unharmed. The practices you will offer will allow them to reconnect with their own true and unsullied nature for sustained periods of time. From this reconnection, they will build resilience and increase self-regulation. With practice of what you offer, those you serve will find that past triggers are diminished and flashbacks are less intrusive. This new program welcomes all who have experience with LifeForce Yoga, including those who are already certified or have done Module A & B or the 7-day intensive LifeForce Yoga Practitioner Training.
