YogaFit for Warriors (PTSD) with YogaFit Staff
This trauma-sensitive yoga workshop zeros in on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Trauma Brain Injury (TBI), the longterm effects each one has on the mind, body, and spirit, and how yoga can bring relief. Anyone suffering from trauma—military men and women, and their families; first responders; victims of violence or abuse—as well as the mental health professionals working with them will benefit from this two-day intensive.
Note: YogaFit for Warriors intensive training hours count as an elective either for the 200-hour or the 300-hour training, but not both. This two-day workshop also counts toward YogaFit for Warriors 100- and 140-hour certifications as well as YogaFit Healthcare 900-hour certification.
