Trauma-Informed YTT: Understanding Sexual Trauma (Fall 2023)


Understanding Sexual Trauma with Alexandra Rossi

In this module, you’ll learn about the trauma experienced as a result of sexual harassment and assault, and how this form of trauma has been, at times, a serious problem in the yoga world. You’ll explore these issues in a brave and courageous space, and learn how to teach in a trauma-informed way that is sensitive to survivors of assault and includes positive imagery, non-triggering and respectful language, and trust-building. This module includes practices such as restorative yoga, body scans, self-compassion, and intention-setting.
