Trauma Sensitive Yoga – Basic Seminar 1 as Online Course

In this five-hour online course, two instructors teach all the theoretical and practical topics of the Basic Seminar 1 in lectures and practical exercises. The individual topics can be worked on and viewed individually. The accompanying handout allows for further in-depth study and contains all slides, supplementary content and exemplary exercises.

This continuing education course is flexible in terms of time and thus takes personal needs into account.

This online course is part of our certified advanced training – Fundamentals (G1, G2 and G3 ) of Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TSY). An online course version is already being worked on for modules 2 and 3. Alternatively, Modules 2 and 3 can be taken as an online livestream via Zoom or as face-to-face classes.

Trauma Sensitive Yoga Online Course

Learning content – theory & practice

This online course aims to empower to use the therapeutic value of yoga. The participants learn how to deepen these experiences in order to then pass them on to others.

Dealing with trigger situations is an elementary component of Trauma Sensitive Yoga. The point is not to avoid them, but to come into conscious contact with them so that you can experience your own body as a “safe place” again.

The participants learn how yoga can be performed with a wide variety of target groups (e.g. in prison, in the military, with refugees, in a clinical context or in inpatient youth welfare). It is also taught how yoga can be integrated into the individual setting.
