Hands-On Healing:

One of TIMBo’s main principles is the importance of the healing power of touch. We believe that safe, nurturing touch is integral to healing. We have combined the Hands-On Healing module with our Trauma-Informed Yoga module so that participants may understand what “safe touch” means and how to properly administer it in the context of the TIMBo trauma-informed yoga class. You will also gain an understanding of the healing effect of safe and nurturing touch on the brain and body, as well as what emotional anatomy is and how it is relevant to TIMBo. As always, you will learn about yourself—your own willingness to recognize the gifts you have to offer and your willingness to receive.

Trauma Informed Yoga:

Working with trauma survivors requires a keen awareness of how stress and trauma reside in the body. All too often, yoga teachers inadvertently instigate more trauma and stress in their students—and in a population of trauma survivors this can have devastating consequences. In this training, you will  learn what trauma-informed yoga is and how to deliver a TIMBo-specific trauma-informed yoga class. We will cover the key components and objectives behind integration postures, endurance postures and restorative postures, and you will learn how and why breath is the most crucial component of any class you will teach. These techniques, coupled with the instruction and practice of healing touch, will leave you with the tools to deliver a safe and powerful class that puts your group's recovery first and creates space for lasting change to occur.
