The I Am Wellbeing Center (IAMWC) is facilitating a training program tailored to Yoga teachers who are seeking to share the 8 limbs of Yoga within underserved populations.
Generally, underserved populations experience a life informed by, among various factors, intergenerational and historical trauma, cultural conflict & acculturation, structural oppression, and incarceration. These factors have tended to manifest in chronic stress and dis-ease, post- traumatic stress, mental illness, and short-term or chronic homelessness.
Participants of IAWMC’s Trauma-Informed Cultural Competency training will engage in an examination of key elements engendering wellness disparities. Participants will further develop their understanding of best practices for facilitating Yoga curriculums in underserved populations.
Join IAMWC for a look into:
Trauma & PTSD // Theory & Physiology, “Safe Touch” & “Safe Teaching” Protocols, Trauma Healing Theory, and Resources for Trauma Healing
Cultural Competency Cultural Humility // Internalized Oppression, and Societal Privilege, Power, & Dharma
A Lifestyle of Seva
The IAMWC designs trauma-informed therapeutic and accessible Yoga programs for the chronically homeless, veteran, and reentry populations of Los Angeles County, with an emphasis on inclusion, diversity, equal access, empowerment, and self-sufficiency. In particular, IAMWC focuses upon making these practices accessible to persons of all abilities, body types, and conditions. Generally, the individuals we serve suffer from untreated injuries, chronic dis- ease, mental illness, trauma, general malaise and other symptoms associated with long-term impoverishment, homelessness, or disenfranchisement.
