How can yoga teacher training transform you?

 

"This work, this training, can be described as a deep dive into self healing. We cannot help others until we can look deeply into our own souls with love and compassion. Only then are we truly fit to guide others on the path. No one can show you the Way, if they haven’t walked the road themselves. Take the time to learn what is here for YOU. Apply the lessons to your own life and THEN open your heart to like-minded souls on their own path to healing. Yoga is a powerful tool to self-awareness and healing, but only if you are willing to acknowledge your own wounds, set ego aside with compassion, and open yourself to the work of healing and rebuilding your self-esteem." Celeste, Lead Trainer

 

"Celeste and I both come from backgrounds in trauma. Our training program naturally morphed into a 'trauma sensitive and informed' program. This means that we are trauma sensitive and aware of the needs of our students that have a history and/or experience with trauma in their lives. Most of us do, to some degree. Because of this, our training creates a sacred space around trauma. We believe this empowers our trainees as self healers even more, empowering them as yoga teachers and to BE their own guru. Even if teaching yoga isn’t for you, this deep dive journey into your Self may be!! 'Healing is a daily event. You can’t ‘go somewhere’ to be healed; you must go inward to be healed. This means a daily commitment to doing the work. You are responsible for your healing and will be an active participant in that process. Your level of activity is directly connected to your level of healing. Small and consistent choices are the path to deep transformation.' Dr. Nicole, LePera, How To Do The Work" Aurora, Lead Trainer

Our Yoga Teacher Training Philosophy

Our philosophy is based on the 8 Limbs of Yoga.  Teaching Yoga, is so much more than teaching physical postures.  Our lead instructors both come from Trauma Informed backgrounds, so naturally this is the container for the program. We spend the time needed creating a sacred space, setting the foundation of our program, through trust, confidence building and nourishing self care. This is a life changing and transformational program.  Our program is not limited to aspiring yoga teachers.  We welcome anyone ready to do the work, that has found yoga, to be their foundation or gateway to it. Students are required to have at least two years experience maintaining a regular yoga practice.

Why Trauma Aware Yoga Teacher Training?

The short answer is because it is about damn time. The  longer answer unfolds below. But first, a question for you:  

In this time of heightened anxiety and stress in the world,  what draws you to the teachings and the practice of yoga?

This is not an idle question. It’s supremely important that  we attempt to understand ourselves before we undertake  the instruction of others... Even if the understanding we  have of Us is imperfect... Even if we question our  questions... Even if (maybe especially if) we hope that the  instruction we seek will help us to answer those questions  for ourselves. 

The word Yoga in Sanskrit (a language that you will  become more and more familiar with if you continue on  this path), is generally translated to mean Union. This  refers to the harmony and balance between the mind,  body, emotions and spirit. We emphasize the word  emotions here, because it is not a part of the generally  accepted definition - however, our emotions (called vrtti’s  Sanskrit) exist on a plane different from our body and  mind, and yet affect both. We may be completely detached  from our emotions, not really present to what we are  feeling, but if we’re brought to awareness of our mental  state or our physical state, we can easily see our peacefulness or our dysregulation. Because emotion  affects us. All of us. It is also affected By our thoughts and  our physical comfort and also a lack of comfort.

The questions were designed for reflection, not a diagnosis. Using the tools of yoga therapy to heal trauma requires a willingness to look at “what’s happening now” as a way of better understanding yourself and learning to give yourself the best possible care and comfort in any given moment.
