Yoga Therapy Trauma Suze Retera

We are really excited to work with Suze Retera in one of the most popular modules in the Self-care and Self-development Program at The Yoga Therapy Institute. Suze also teaches in collaboration with Montserrat G. Mukherjee at the Yoga Nidra for Yoga Therapy module part of the 850 and 550 hours programs.

Suze is one of the most experienced yoga teachers in the Netherlands with a background in psychology and Yoga Nidra with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli. She is a well-liked teacher with a gift for making the most complex subjects easy to understand and to put them into practice in real life.

The program

Tension and traumatic experience settle in the body and are often experienced as physical sensations.

In an effort to escape these sensations, dissociation can become a to go to state, which is often an obstacle in cognitive therapy, but also in the functioning of people in daily life.

Physical practices are a very effective tool to release access tension, facilitate a more grounded state and create awareness around dissociation which plays an important part in any healing process.

In this module, Suze will explain the way tension settles in the body, looking at the nervous system, but also at the fascia and certain muscles.
Students will learn how different physical practices can facilitate the release of this tension and create embodiment and the physical and mental effects of different movement modalities.
These include moving beyond the common restorative and meditative yoga practices and applying the physical practice to create mobility, functional strength, tension release, balance, and a grounded state.
As a facilitator you will learn:
– reading body signals and introduction to the nervous system
– when and how to apply touch in a safe and trauma aware manner
– to apply alignment in a functional way
– to understand the role fascia plays in tension and mobility in the body
– to manage your own grounding and embodiment
– to functionally apply physical practices for different situations and needs
