In this workshop we will define yoga and discuss how clinicians can use principles of yoga and mindfulness practices in the treatment of complex trauma. We will discuss the connection between yoga, somatic psychotherapy and theories of nervous system dysregulation as they apply to cases of complex, developmental trauma. We will thoroughly explore the risks and rewards of using these tools with traumatized populations and examine the implications of cultural competence when teaching abroad or with special populations. This workshop will provide practical tips on how clinicians can proceed in integrating yoga and mindfulness practices into both individual and group therapeutic treatment models. We begin with discussion and lecture, followed by an experiential yoga practice, debrief and discussion (participants should wear comfortable clothing for movement during the latter part of this session).
