with Mariana Caplan, PhD, MFT, SEP, RYT-500

This training is open to all new or seasoned professionals in the mental health, Somatic Experiencing, and yoga fields. Only SEPs will receive credits toward the Post-Advanced SEP Certificate.

Somatic Experiencing® is at the cutting edge of trauma treatment and embodiment practices worldwide. Yoga is scientifically and anecdotally proven almost universally to be beneficial for all levels of physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being at all ages and stages of life. This training offers a theoretical and experiential exploration of how blending these two highly complementary modalities supports deep unwinding of trauma in the body, personal and relational healing, self-awareness, and thriving.

This workshop will introduce students—novice through advanced—to the foundational principles of Somatic Experiencing® through explanation, demonstrations, and partner work. We will then discover how these practices blend seamlessly with yoga, including asana/postures, breathwork, and meditation, and visualization. Through this highly experiential immersion, students will:

• Understand and review core practices of Somatic Experiencing including resourcing, titration, and pendulation
• Discover how to bring core practices of Somatic Experiencing into yoga practice and teaching in order to receive and offer deeper psycho-somatic benefits
• Explore the emotional level of yoga asana and discover how to utilize yoga practice to process trauma
• Learn to use yogic practices to enhance therapeutic work with clients
• How Tantric yoga philosophy and practice seamlessly links yoga and Somatic Experiencing

The immersion can be taken in-person or at a distance from anywhere throughout the world. There will be a 3-day intensive offered in-person in Marin County, CA, or at a distance (via video), as well as (two) 3-hour webinar sessions both before and after to prepare and to integrate the core course content and allow ample time for questions and dialogue.
