Trauma Sensitive Yin Teacher Training

With a unique focus on trauma-informed teachings, energetics and mental health awareness in relation to yin yoga

This Yin teacher training has a unique focus on trauma sensitive teachings and mental health in relation to yin yoga. You will learn core principles of trauma informed yin practice and gain knowledge to apply in your work, practice and teachings. All sessions are live and in-person (no pre-recorded content), and the intimate group size allows a greater impact on the individual and provides a beautiful safe space for us to come together and immerse fully into the healing practices of yin and energetics.

 

What you will learn in this training:

One of the most important capabilities to develop for us in life is knowing how to restore and reset. When we experience life from a restful place, our nervous system is balanced, the body healthy and we can recover quickly from imbalances and life’s challenges. During a time of adversity, such as we are experiencing today, more and more people suffer from depression, anxiety, and fight or flight responses.

Teaching (and receiving) yin yoga is one of the major mind-body practices that make the difference. Shifting people from fight or flight to flow and restore.

This teacher training will cover a number of important teaching skills and processes that support the deepening of people’s experience of rest, behaviorally, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Its purpose is to provide access to tools and resources that teachers can use in order to create powerful and potent yin classes and yin and reiki masterclasses. This Training includes the Reiki Level One Certification. This will enable you to facilitate yin and reiki classes.

Meet your facilitator Wiebke Queisser

She has worked closely with Michael Trembath (Samvahan) and studied acu- energetics with Kevin Farrow, acupressure with Ray Ford, and clinical hypnotherapy with Gordon Young.

Wiebke pioneered the applications of energetics and trauma sensitive teachings to yin yoga which has become known as her Yin & Reiki Masterclasses she offers here at Yogatime and along the east coast of Australia as well as in Europe.

“My focus and intention with this training is to teach you how to bring trauma-informed practices and energetics into your classes, life and modalities you already offer. You will learn the different yin poses and related meridians and I will teach you about trauma-sensitive offerings, you’ll learn about mental health awareness teachings, you’ll learn how to create a safe container and how to apply healing touch. This training is not only for teachers but for those who would like to learn more about restorative practices, yin, trauma-informed teachings, self-care and self-healing. My training will have a strong focus on healing and self-healing.” Wiebke

Meet our amazing guest facilitators Kate Dambach and Dr. Sneha Wadhwani

Kate is a registered and practicing acupuncturist, Chinese herbal medicine practitioner and yoga teacher. Her love of yin yoga inspired her to dive deeper into the wisdom of Chinese Medicine and Taoist Philosophy. Having studied with teachers including Melanie McLaughlin, Jo Phee, and Paul and Suzee Grilley, she went on to complete her Chinese Medicine degree at the University of Technology Sydney. Kate is passionate about sharing the wisdom and theories of Chinese Medicine to support others in discovering its potency for healing.

Qualifying in medicine in 2002 from the University of Leicester UK, Dr Sneha went on to train as a GP in London and moved into general gynaecology outpatient services and urogynaecology in the UK.

In 2015, Dr Sneha moved to Australia with her husband and two daughters and started a Women’s Health Clinic in Maroubra Medical and Dental Centre. With the relocation to Bondi a couple years later, so too came the opening of another Women’s Health Clinic in this location, led by Dr Sneha. She is a UNSW medical Lecturer and is now specialised in women’s health supporting them in their health journey and different life stages.
