Understanding Trauma Through the Lens of Cultural Competency
Limited Capacity seats available

The holistic healing that comes from a regular yoga practice can be profound. The extensive research on healing within the yoga arena continues to grow exponentially; subsequently, the field is now looking at yoga not only as a therapeutic modality, but as way to serve in our communities during times of crisis. Trauma-informed yoga programs are expanding rapidly, however, the proportion of healthcare professionals, yoga therapists and instructors with trauma-informed training in relation to the needs of communities undergoing disaster relief and experiencing complex trauma is disproportionate. Accordingly, the most dedicated yoga teachers and healthcare professionals will need additional trauma-based and resiliency training, to adequately serve within the diversity of these areas.

 As individuals, we all have biases. As the dynamics of diversity continues to radically change, our initiatives toward the service of inclusion and competency will continue to struggle until we learn to recognize and understand that unconscious bias is a normal component of our psychological nature. By exploring the areas of how our unconscious bias shapes the beliefs that form our thoughts, and ultimately our subconscious actions, we can reveal our thought patterns and discover how to be fully present and adjust our body language, expression and voice, in order to attend the complexities of trauma in the cultural, social and economic diversity of the communities we attend to. 

The experiences witnessed within today's yoga classes, workshops and trainings, both on-and-off the yoga mat, naturally emulate what we experience in society as a whole. When we learn to respectfully honor and discuss culture, orientation, race, beliefs, biases, hierarchy and privilege, we begin to develop the competency to serve the community, empower people to have a strong sense of agency, and are readily able to fully utilize the tools of our yoga and mindfulness practices to address complex traumas.

The presentation strategy highlights a path to bridge yoga and mindfulness tools with functional trauma training and education to restore resiliency and culturally competent communication in a safe and comprehensive environment. This collaborative effort will cover the basic aspects of understanding complex traumas, the benefits of reducing unconscious bias, along with how to work with and approach affected populations through cultural diversity and competence.
