LATE 2017/EARLY 2018 IN TORONTO, CANADA
Using a New Model Based on New Research into the Healing Effects
of Kundalini Yoga on Mental and Physical Trauma

In this training you will explore:
- Child development, brain development and function, trauma and attachment theory
- Simple versus complex trauma, and the implications for mental and physical health, socialization and relationships
- Self-integration and how yoga fits into an integrative treatment approach
- Special considerations when providing yoga therapy to individuals with trauma
- Specific practices, guiding principles and resources clinically tested and empirically researched in an 8-week trauma protocol
