NECTAR training prepares yoga instructors, addiction counselors, and other health professionals to teach Recovery Yoga classes.
Through discussion, interactive exercises, and hands-on practice, NECTAR training attendees learn how to effectively serve this unique population, creating a nurturing, healing, and empowering experience in each and every class.
This 10-hour course* (two 5-hour segments) provides a foundation of knowledge of addiction and trauma, draws connections between the principles of recovery and the principles of yoga, and addresses the practical concerns of teaching this group, including:
~ Understanding the role of Samskaras (pathways of the brain) and
Somatics (trauma trapped in the body) in recovery
~ Understanding the Autonomic Nervous System (Fight/Flight/Freeze Response) and how Pranayama (Breath Control) directly affects this system
~ Choosing meaningful themes and facilitating share circles
~ Designing recovery-focused asana practices and savasana meditations
