In June, we gathered together for an introductory discussion about ‘What is trauma?’, and the difference between being trauma-informed and trauma-aware as yoga teachers.

The event, led by Amelia Wood (Teacher Training Board member for the Yogacampus Manchester course and PhD candidate at SOAS), included a practice, a presentation, and discussion. She included ideas about accommodations and adaptations we might make within our group classes to create an accessible environment. Amelia encouraged those who are interested in the topic to pursue Trauma Awareness trainings and shared resources for where people might find trainings.
