YogaFit for Warrior Kids Online

With a focus on developmental trauma disorder, a new and vastly expanded tool for understanding early childhood trauma, this special therapeutically oriented workshop centers on the unique way a child’s nervous system and brain respond to traumatic events, including chronic emotional and physical abuse and neglect. We will address somatic gaps in current therapies available and the challenges inherent in treating children suffering from PTSD.  

Note: YogaFit for WarriorKids counts as an elective for either the 200-­hour or the 300-­hour training, but not both. This two-­day workshop also counts toward YogaFit’s 100-­hour and 140­-hour YogaFit for Warriors certification; the 100-­hour YogaFit for WarriorKids certification; and YogaFit’s 900­-hour YogaFit HealthCare certification.

What you will learn:

  • How early childhood trauma dramatically affects brain function and neurological development and impacts a child’s ability to learn, manage stress, and develop relationships later in life
  • How too much or too little sensory input damages the wiring of a child’s nervous system and brain development and can cause myriad childhood and teenage problems, including ADHD, bipolar disorder, and addictions
  • How to create a trauma-­sensitive yoga program that is safe and effective for a variety of age groups—from newborns and toddlers to pre­teens and adolescents
  • The importance of engaging the senses in any yoga program specifically designed to help heal childhood trauma
  • How to incorporate visualization, storytelling and imagery, grounding and centering exercises, as well as breathing and specific yoga poses for each age group
  • How to use YogaFit’s transformational language specifically for this population to facilitate a deeper release of stress
