300 Hour Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy Certification
At Grand Rapids Healing Yoga we believe that each person is unique, with a unique history and energy in body, mind, and spirit. Most healing professionals desire to help their clients but are trained in modalities that compartmentalize and superficially treat a person. The healing process we offer is one of exploration of Self and discovery, taking into account the unique nature of the individual.
Yoga therapy is a complete mind body spirit therapeutic modality, that utilizes all the tools of yoga. This training includes asana, meditation, pranayama, energy healing, koshas, nature-based practices, shadow work, neuroscience, Ayurveda, psychology, and spirituality.
This course provides the tools to guide your clients deep into themselves, to find their own answers for the disconnect within. This training is appropriate for the professional who is tired of scratching the surface with their clients, or who wants to branch out into the emerging field of yoga therapy. We are a member school and continuing education provider for The International Association for Yoga Therapists.
Yoga is powerful and has been used for good reason for over 10,000 years. In Western cultures, however, the word “yoga” is often used to mean “posture,” and people think of “doing yoga” as “performing yoga poses.” Most certifications and pieces of training spend the majority of the hours on the postures.
But postures are just one component of the yoga. Yoga includes transformational philosophy, energy healing, breathwork, neurobiology and neuropsychology as it applies to yoga practices, self-care, and spirituality. The focus of the training is to give the practitioner tools while working with individuals in a one-to-one setting.
This training will help you:
Stand out in a crowded marketplace, by integrating mental-emotional health skills and specializing in a holistic embodiment that is in frequent demand.
Learn to be a Sovern facilitator, with skills such as reading energy in yourself and maintaining center while interacting with another energy, Shadow monitoring, and mirroring.
Radically expand your practice by breaking limiting beliefs or barriers to re-connection that have been keeping you “playing small."
Gain confidence in your ability to support yourself and clients on and off the therapeutic mat.
Experience clarity and deep healing through your own personal journey of self-discovery + shadow work.
