Student Comments "This instructor was great! I have a strong interest in learning all types of Yoga and this was among my favorites. As a theatre performance major, I benefited more than I could imagine from this class. The breathing exercises were amazing for me, and I will be able to use those techniques in my own craft. I have suggested this course to many of my friends. ..."
Kundalini Yoga and Meditation. . . As Taught by Yogi Bhajan
Yoga Teachers earn 7 IKYTA CEUs and 7 Yoga Alliance CEUs through this one-day workshop (9 am - 5 pm) on Saturday November 1, 2014 for Yoga Teachers, First Responders and Mental Health Workers at the KC Kundalini Yoga Center.
This workshop is designed to assist teachers and counsellors to develop effective methods of supporting their students and clients who are experiencing the effects of trauma.
- Trauma may overwhelm our ability to cope and live in the present. We have noted that more and more people are coming into our classes who are suffering from depression, fatigue, and other symptoms of our stressful society and lifestyles. Indeed, surveys are showing an alarming prevalence of trauma in the US and around the world.
- According to a national incidence study of abuse and neglect, nearly 3 million children (1:25) experience some form of endangerment each year in the US, and almost 1:3 of these children experience direct physical, sexual or emotional abuse. 2:3 experience significant physical or emotional neglect.
- According to the National Institute of Justice and Centers for Disease Control, nearly 1:5 of women and 1:33 men report experiencing attempted or completed rape at some time in their lives.
- Each year in the US, approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner.
- In the US alone, around 7.7 million American adults age 18 and older (3.5% each year) suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Some may complain of only 1 or 2 symptoms while others are plagued with multiple and often disabling behaviors. While not all are dysfunctional most are suffering in ways that Kundalini yoga can help.
- Current research is showing how yoga and meditation may reduce symptoms, particularly in disorders that have a strong psychosomatic, psychological or stress-related component. Yogi Bhajan brought us a powerful set of teachings that we can apply to aid most of the people who come to us for relief.
All instructors have been teaching Kundalini Yoga for many years and are certified in Supporting People with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) through Kundalini Yoga and Mind Body Interventions for Post Traumatic Stress Disroder.
