Veterans Yoga Project is teaming up with Yoga Now Chicago to offer an extraordinary opportunity for intensive training in a proven, mindful approach to teaching yoga to veterans and others who are struggling with posttraumatic stress and other trauma-related psychological challenges.
Mindful Resilience for Recovery and Resilience is an evidence-informed, clinically-tested yoga program that was developed specifically for veterans recovering from posttraumatic stress and other psychological difficulties. It is an evidence-informed, in that practices have been chosen and adapted based on clinical and neuro-scientific knowledge about posttraumatic stress and its treatment. It is clinically-tested, in that it was developed based on feedback from hundreds of veterans and active-duty service members receiving treatment at residential and outpatient treatment programs. Mindful Resilience has been successfully integrated into several mental health and addiction treatment programs for veterans and active-duty military across the US and Canada.
In the Level One teacher training, you will explore:

The development, course, and consequences of trauma-related disorders
The psychotherapeutic treatment of trauma-related disorders and how yoga fits into an integrative treatment approach
Special considerations and cautions when providing yoga therapy to veterans and other trauma-affected individuals
Specific practices, guiding principles, and resources found to be helpful for veterans coping with trauma, including a detailed treatment manual with an empirically-informed, clinically-tested 12-week protocol, and the Mindful Yoga Therapy for Veterans Recovering from Trauma practice guide.

Your guide on this journey is Dan Libby, founder and director of Veterans Yoga Project. This Veterans Yoga Project training consists of a balance of practice and lecture/discussion. Approximately half of our time will be practicing the five tools of Mindful Resilience. Approximately half our time will be spent exploring the symptoms of post-traumatic stress and other trauma-related disorders, how those symptoms are related to underlying neurobiology, and how to use this understanding to most effectively teach individuals recovering from trauma.
