TRAUMA SENSITIVE YTT EVOLVE_ST MARY'S 2018 copy.jpg

 

This comprehensive 50-hour training focuses on understanding trauma and helping re-frame it’s negative effects of victim hood and suffering into an opportunity to be kind and self-loving, yoking with the heart through mindful, coherent Yoga practices. As we unpack the pranic implications of holding trauma in the body, we’ll discover that the unwinding or thawing of this “frozen potential” allows greater possibilities for stability, self acceptance, healing and vitality to emerge.

Teachings will include: trauma’s neurological and physiological impacts, recognizing PTS(D) symptomology, embryonic origins of the nervous system, asana, pranayama and meditation techniques that re-calibrate the nervous system and release trauma granthis, mind/body bilateral integration, accessing the soma of rejuvenation within, building resilience from the inside out, creating and sustaining positive impressions in the mind, and more. Due to the intricate nature of this work, we will practice listening and feedback skills that fortify personal boundaries and cultivate a well-contained, loving presence for our students and ourselves.

Venue: St. Mary’s College, Maryland

Mpls / St. Paul Blooma's Level 1 Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training

REGISTER HERE -----> http://bit.ly/NovTT2017

Blooma's Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training is all about finding the goddess inside. You will be trained in a sequence that is specifically designed to empower and prepare women for birth. Join founder and owner of Blooma- Sarah Longacre, and director Stacy Seebart in this amazing teacher training that has gone international!

Blooma's Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training will take you through a journey. It's more than just another yoga training. Sarah and Stacy lead each training with the intention that each individual will be able to have their own experience in finding their voice. The training provides an abundance of information about labor and birth. In addition to this, we explore why YOGA is beneficial for this stage in a woman's journey. Drawing from a rich history of birthing wisdom, this training includes: the birthing community, inner wisdom, prenatal body knowledge, anatomy, wellness, introduction to childbirth education philosophies, the energy system of the chakras, and of course the depth of the ancient practice of yoga. 

During Blooma’s training you’ll learn far more than how to teach modifications for pregnancy. You’ll learn about the emotional and physical challenges a woman undergoes during labor and childbirth—and how her prenatal yoga classes can help prepare her for that journey. You’ll also explore your own beliefs surrounding birth, taking time to journal and share with others in your training. We’ll practice together, take turns teaching, and developing confidence as teachers. Blooma is unique in that there are very few locations around the world that offer Yoga Alliance approved prenatal yoga education.

Drawing from her core belief in the inner strength of women and the power of the breath, Sarah will share stories and wisdom from both her years of teaching prenatal yoga and from the hundreds of births she has attended as a doula. Stacy will share her knowledge of yoga, meditation, and mindful listening exercises both physically and energetically. They will teach you how to incorporate these techniques into your classes.

You’ll leave prepared to lead a beautiful prenatal practice that builds a mother’s confidence, strength, connects her to baby, and uplifts her mind, body, and spirit.

Schedule:
Thursday: 6:00pm-9:00pm at Blooma Minneapolis
Friday: 9:00am-6:00pm at Blooma St. Paul
Saturday: 8:00am-6:00pm at Blooma Minneapolis
