In the moder world where a wide variety of people with different backgrounds and history are joining yoga classes and retreats, it becomes essential for yoga teachers to acquire tools to
face such diversity and provide the best class.
However, to support others, we first need to understand ourselves in terms of what our behaviors and defense mechanisms are. Hence, this course offers a profound inner journey
into oneself and the core of one’s belief system.

The course explains the nervous system’s functioning and trauma’s dynamic. It focuses on how trauma affects the human brain and behaviors on an unconscious level.
It also explains the relevance of learning and adopting a trauma-informed approach for modern yoga teachers. It provides all guidelines and practical instruments to handle your students in a yoga class and yourself in any critical situations.
You will gain precious insights and knowledge that will exponentially enrich your yoga experience regardless of your role.
Overall, this training may be a profound journey to acquire new knowledge but also reconnect with oneself and others. For this reason, it is suitable both for yoga teachers and students as in the delicate and complex dynamic of a yoga class they are often mirroring each other.
Yoga Alliance accredits the course, and you will receive the YACEP certificate at completion.
The retreat location is Borgo degli Aranci, a beautifully restored group of farmhouses set amongst organic orange groves 40 km away from Catania.
We will serve vegetarian and vegan brunch and dinner using only seasonal and local products.

nature.
