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.
