MH Trainees were able to participate in an especially amazing workshop in July 2014.  David Emerson, co-author of “Overcoming Trauma Through Yoga,” held a two-day Trauma-Sensitive Yoga workshop with our Trainees and Volunteers.  He shared his amazing insights, based on years of pioneering research through his service as a yoga teacher in the trauma community.

Following the workshop, two volunteer Yoga Therapists helped the Trainees put these ideas into action in their own yoga practices through a series of one-on-one and group sessions.  Learning to incorporate these skills will help them grow as teachers and evolve their understanding of Yoga as a tool for healing.
