Taught by Holle Black 
C-IAYT, E-RYT500 and founder of Centering Youth, a non-profit initiative taking yoga and mindfulness into marginalized populations in GA.

Yoga is an ancient system of philosophies and practices that help to heal the body-mind connection, improve homeostasis and increase well-being. Scientific research is proving tangible benefits of yoga, especially with trauma and PTSD. Studies show yoga as a promising adjunct therapy to address common physiological, emotional, and psychological issues associated with trauma experiences.

This program provides the framework necessary for teaching yoga and mindfulness to at-risk populations including prisons, homeless shelters, VAs, hospitals and other arenas where trauma is often a factor in or result of one’s current life situation.

Participants can expect to learn how to help people better self-regulate and move into a space of greater self-efficacy using yoga. Come away with an understanding of:

• Effects of trauma on the mind, body and nervous system;

• Applications of yoga to promote the mind/body reconnection following trauma;

• How trauma informed yoga is different than a “regular” class (language/cueing, postures, pacing, philosophies);

• How to create and teach trauma-based yoga classes to various populations and in different settings.


From a practical approach, all of the essentials will be covered: Our 200 hour yoga alliance certified teacher training will explore the essence of yoga, instilling deep knowledge and respect for the ancient tradition and modern evolution of this powerful practice. New teachers will graduate empowered with a craft to create meaningful, consciously aligned, intelligently sequenced classes that can be tailored to a broad range of students, providing them with a strong foundation to begin their careers as yoga educators.

This teacher training will provide a unique opportunity for students to embrace all of the various skills and knowledge necessary to become fully competent yoga teachers in an ever growing and in demand profession, facilitating personal growth and generating greater well-being amongst students as they learn to more fully embody the path of yoga.
