Ongoing Training

Trauma-Sensitive Holy Yoga is a 60-hour training developed by Director of Core Programming, Jonnie Goodmanson. The program provides education for understanding the effects that trauma has on the body and how the body can hold on to traumatic memories in very tangible ways. Individuals will explore yoga postures that help facilitate healing from traumatic memories to guide others through the journey of reconnecting to the body in a safe way. The Trauma-Sensitive Holy Yoga training equips you to walk others through physiological recovery from traumatic memories by applying different techniques to appropriately manage the symptoms of a trauma survivor. Individuals also study how Scripture addresses trauma and the ways in which God’s love and grace provide what is needed to safely explore the parts of the body that have felt stunted by traumatic experiences.

The class meets for nine 2-hour webinar sessions and includes additional home study, reading assignments, at-home video instruction, and a teaching practicum. You do not need to be a previously certified yoga instructor to participate.


Payment plans and early bird pricing available.

Learning to become aware of both internal and external trauma triggers, as well as the different causes and manifestations of trauma has helped me to learn to process my own past as well as help others to heal from theirs. Heidi Vance taught the class in such a way that anyone could follow, process and understand very complicated material with ease.

The Trauma training has taught me that while my body may remember everything, God can rewrite the story of my biology.
