About The Event
7th Annual Yoga for PTSD Training at Sedona Yoga Festival
SYF Gives Back is something we’ve been doing from the start. Utilizing this event as platform to serve and in our case, we’ve been offering some form of trauma informed yoga training at SYF since the beginning. We have trained hundreds of yoga teachers and brought awareness to the devastating effects of Post Traumatic Stress in our communities across the country. We’ve called this program all sorts of things from Yoga for Veterans and Yoga for First Responders to Yoga for PTSD, with one simple aim: Provide the tools to alleviate the effects of trauma, of suffering. A trauma sensitive yoga training takes into account the specific aspects of traditional yoga practices that ameliorate the effects of trauma and stress on the human nervous system. Yoga is and has always been the healing balm to soothe the injured human nervous system, ergo a Yoga for PTSD training, a trauma sensitive yoga training, trauma informed yoga training… Call it what you will, we know what outcomes have emerged from this training. We know that by training hundreds we have impacted thousands.
For the better part of a decade, Sedona Yoga Festival has been facilitating authentic connection between practitioners and their deepest potential. Now, as it enters its eighth year, the conference is poised to fully embody the concept of 20/20 vision—with an impressive roster, rich coursework and exciting extras carefully crafted to help attendees take their consciousness to the next level.
Slated to take place March 12–16, 2020, the festival returns to the Performing Arts Center at Sedona Red Rock High School, where the state-of-the art facilities can accommodate a variety of offerings suitable for every level of practitioner, from absolute beginners to experienced teachers. The festival’s flexible structure effectively encourages attendees to choose their own adventure, creating a curriculum customized to their individual desires—and a variety of guided land excursions foster meaningful immersion in Sedona’s breathtaking natural beauty.
