Train with Emily:
Trauma-Informed Yoga and Somatic Healing
Over the past decade I have developed a unique skillset and expertise in trauma-informed yoga and trauma recovery through somatic exercises. I co-founded one of the first non-profits in the nation offering trauma-informed yoga programs and trainings, and have designed curricula and offered trainings for a variety of academic institutions, social service agencies, yoga studios and non-profits since 2013.
I currently offer the following trainings, which can be adapted to an online format:
TRAUMA INFORMED YOGA
For Yoga Teachers
This training introduces trauma-informed yoga principles and practice in a single-day format. This training prepares yoga teachers to facilitate trauma-informed yoga classes for a variety of populations, in a safe, knowledgeable, and compassionate way. I offer this training as a standalone workshop at yoga studios and as a guest facilitator in 200- and 300-hour yoga teacher trainings.
TRAUMA INFORMED SOMATIC HEALING
For Mental Health Providers
This training serves mental health providers, social workers, therapists, and others in the field. This training focuses on developing a trauma-informed mental health practice, and cultivates providers' skills in incorporating evidence-based somatic exercises and techniques into their mental health work with clients. CEUs may be available depending on your state.
VICARIOUS TRAUMA AND SELF-CARE
For First Responders
2 to 8 hours
I consult for fire departments and first responder agencies, offering a 2- to 8-hour practical training on vicarious trauma and self-care. This training supports first responders to manage symptoms of occupational and traumatic stress, and teaches somatic skills for preventing burnout, depression, addiction, and suicide. I currently facilitate this training for South Lake Tahoe Fire Rescue and Lake Valley Fire Protection District.
