In today’s episode, you’ll meet an amazing yoga teacher who is also a martial arts instructor, Laurien Zurhake. Laurien lives in Germany and along with her husband, runs a studio that offers both martial arts and yoga. Their focus is trauma informed teaching and the way she trains her instructors as well as teaches her students is with a trauma informed approach. We discuss the definition of trauma, the neuroscience at work when someone has experienced trauma and techniques that you can use as a yoga teacher to have a greater awareness for your students who might have experienced trauma. I think you’ll find this episode fascinating and covering a very important subject.
