About

Trauma Informed Yoga: Making yoga teaching effective in the context of Trauma healing and research

In this 15 hours course we will explore Trauma and its effects from a variety of different perspectives, including clinical and historical perspectives with Hatti Figge, LCSW, and whole body-practice perspectives with Margherita Tisato, E-RYT & CEP. 15 hours Continuing Education Credits are available for yoga teachers registered with Yoga Alliance for no extra charge.
“Trauma” has become something of a buzz word in the healing arts world. At the same time, we’ve been seeing a narrowing of the distance between clinical, western-medicine and science driven modalities, and wholistic practices such as yoga aiming at awakening the innate potential of the body to heal itself. Margherita and Hatti have spent years discussing the intersection of practices, how they can inform and improve each other, and how to maintain a sense of integrity in either field. This workshop is the result of those years of dialogue and shared experiences. We will explore a variety of arguments related to the following themes:

*Clinical history of trauma, from the development of the diagnosis to contemporary research and perspectives. The differentiation between Acute, Developmental, Collective and Complex Trauma.
*Symptoms and related medical issues for each, and how they can manifest in the body.
*A history of yoga and how it can inform trauma research, with ample time to discuss trauma in the yoga room and how to change the paradigm of teaching.
*An overview of the methodologies employed to deal with trauma from traditional to modern psychotherapy, and from a yoga practice perspective.
*Healthy attachment, Post-traumatic Growth and Resiliency Theory

Participants will spend 12 hours on in class lectures, presentations and practice and integrate with 3 hours of personal reading and contemplating to complete the course. A final written document will be required for those applying for YA CE credits.



Hatti Figge maintains a private psychotherapy practice in NYC addressing trauma, anxiety, difficult relationships, depression, bereavement, and life transitions. She is also on the teaching faculty at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy’s Trauma Division. She is trained in and practices a range of evidence-based treatment modalities predicated upon deepest mind/body entwinement and trust in nature's tendency toward healing. She tailors her work to best meet and move with each individual client. ***She is a certified yoga instructor as well, and integrates body and breath in her treatment.

Margherita Tisato teaches yoga, meditation, mindful movement and dance in NYC and internationally. She has been driven to share the healing qualities of yoga in unconventional places such as NYC jails and Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Programs in the firm belief that the body can be a safe place for healing. She has trained with the Trauma Center in Massachusetts as well as with Lineage project and Liberation Prison Yoga in NYC to understand the implications of trauma in choice-making and embodiment.

$275 per person; pre-registration required.
