This training provides an understanding of the general health impacts of interpersonal and systemic trauma and offers an evidence-based rationale for employing body-based
mindfulness practices, such as yoga, for healing trauma. It consists of 4 to 6 hours of self-paced preparatory online learning and 14 hours in-person, for a total of 20 hours of
training.

This training is for anyone who benefits from:

  • Awareness of the prevalence, mechanisms, and impacts of trauma, especially for people of marginalized communities.
  • Understanding how developmental trauma can lead to additional traumas and become a significant factor that leads to criminal behavior, addiction, and mental health issues.
  • Learning how specific yoga and other embodied mindfulness practices can be effective for healing trauma and playing a role in transforming justice.
This training is not just for yoga professionals. Is for:
  • Anyone with social justice concerns who practices yoga.
  • Those who work directly in the criminal justice system or with a community organization involved in it.
  • Attorneys, therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, teachers, and others whose work is within or intersects the criminal justice system
  • Formerly incarcerated individuals and their friends and family
  • People interested in bringing a more effective and humane approach to dealing with crime, addiction, and mental health in our communities

The training also offers access to practice videos of our approach to trauma-informed yoga. You will receive a PDF copy of our book Yoga: A Path to Healing and Recovery written by James Fox, the same book we distribute for free to incarcerated people in the United States, Mexico, and England.
