This episode has been taken from a live Q&A session with lead teacher, Brandt, and his yoga therapy students.
In this Yoga Therapy Q&A session, Brandt focuses on the topic of being trauma sensitive with all clients as a yoga therapist, even if you don’t know all of their trauma history. Brandt offers advice on how to gauge whether someone may have some trauma, how to approach people by always giving options. Brandt also covers consent in the context of yoga therapy as well as how to allow clients & students the space to give honest feedback.
Other topics covered include optimal transition times when you’re seeing multiple clients in a day, tips for meeting with clients over zoom instead of in person, the importance of strengthening muscles and why the Breathing Deeply curriculum focuses on strengthening over Iyengar style alignment!
This Q&A is full of incredible information & advice especially if you are interested in approaching people in a trauma sensitive way, whether you are a yoga teacher, yoga therapist or a practitioner of any other type of modality working with the body.
