This program will be led by Evolve Yoga + Wellness’ Owner/Director Ann Hunt and senior teachers Miriam Kindley and Lauri Bruce.
This training offers a comprehensive, experiential and integrative curriculum in a non-authoritarian environment, encouraging students to discover their own unique style of teaching in a wide variety of settings. This training draws from a diversity of yoga styles but is rooted in the belief that taught skillfully and mindfully, yoga can be accessible to all regardless of age, shape or flexibility. We believe in building a strong working knowledge of posture alignment, modifications, benefits and contraindications and anatomy therefore seek to strengthen a student’s current practice of yoga, to develop personal empowerment and to enhance and build skills of communication, leadership, awareness, observation, practice and teaching. It is our intention to provide participants with the skills necessary to be an effective, safe and inspiring teacher. This program is also of tremendous value to those who are interested in deepening their own personal knowledge of and inquiry into the principles and practices of yoga.

This comprehensive 50-hour training focuses on understanding trauma and helping reframe it’s negative effects of victimhood and suffering into an opportunity to be kind and self-loving, yoking with the heart through mindful, coherent Yoga practices. As we unpack the pranic implications of holding trauma in the body, we’ll discover that the unwinding or thawing of this “frozen potential” allows greater possibilities for stability, self acceptance, healing and vitality to emerge.

Teachings will include: trauma’s neurological and physiological impacts, recognizing PTS(D) symptomology, embryonic origins of the nervous system, asana, pranayama and meditation techniques that recalibrate the nervous system and release trauma granthis, mind/body bilateral integration, accessing the soma of rejuvenation within, building resilience from the inside out, creating and sustaining positive impressions in the mind, and more.Due to the intricate nature of this work, we will practice listening and feedback skills that fortify personal boundaries and cultivate a well-contained, loving presence for our students and ourselves.

This training will be held on the beautiful riverside campus of St. Mary’s College of Maryland.

Cost Breakdown:

  • Tuition only $850;
  • Tuition, room and 3 healthy meals daily: $1450 ($600 for room & meals + $850 for tuition);
  • Meals only: $300
