$125.00 How to Teach Yoga & Meditation to Survivors of Sexual Trauma


Pricing: $125 general / $55 members

Through this day-long online workshop for yoga teachers and interested students, you will learn how to teach yoga and meditation in a way that is safe and supportive for women who have experienced sexual assault and abuse.

In any given yoga class, if you're teaching more than three students, it's likely that there is a survivor in your class. So it's critical that we all learn how to teach in ways that facilitate healing rather than hinder it.


Through this training you will learn:

Basic principles of trauma-informed yoga, mindfulness, and meditation

Easy ways to modify your teaching to be trauma-sensitive

Yoga movement, mindfulness, and meditation techniques that help heal the impacts of sexual trauma

How to teach survivors of sexual assault and abuse through the lenses of diversity, equity, and inclusion


Key focuses of this training include:

Trauma-informed yoga theory

Holistic impacts of sexual assault and abuse on survivors

The lived experiences of survivors, particularly women of color and women living in underserved communities

Yoga, mindfulness, and meditation techniques that heal the impacts of sexual trauma

Creating community for survivors 

This training is led by Halli Faulkner and Lenna Jawdat from Woman Warrior, a nonprofit organization that provides healing yoga workshops for women who have experienced sexual assault and abuse. Please feel free to email Halli with any questions: hallijastaran@womanwarrioryoga.org.

 Please note: If you are not already a yoga instructor, this training does not replace a full yoga teacher training program. It is meant to supplement your current certification or act as a guide for mental health professionals or others who would like to incorporate meditation into their practice.

 



Halli Faulkner

Halli Jastaran Faulkner teaches healing yoga workshops for women who have experienced sexual assault and abuse.

As a survivor herself, Halli has spent the last seven years studying how to use the tools of movement, breath, and mantra to help herself heal. Her Woman Warrior workshops use these same tools to create a safe space where students tap into their own innate healing power.

Halli first learned about yoga in her high school gym class in upstate New York and has been practicing and learning ever since.

In 2014, Halli moved to Los Angeles and was first trained in Kundalini yoga by Krishna Kaur and then trained in trauma-informed yoga by Kyra Haglund. She then started creating Woman Warrior workshops for survivors while going deep into her own process of healing from sexual trauma and post-traumatic stress.

Halli is honored to have taught Woman Warrior workshops for sexual assault survivors in cities including Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Rochester, New York. And she’s grateful to spend her down time at home with her beautiful wife and their baby daughter.
