What is Trauma Aware Facilitation?

Trauma, and being trauma aware and trauma sensitive, is finally getting the attention it needs in yoga classes, healing spaces, coaching sessions, the workplace and in our communities. 

It’s now being widely recognised that we all experience trauma, but how it shows up, how we can recognise it and how we can support ourselves and our students or clients is different for everyone.

So, without doing years of study as a therapist or trauma specialist, how can you, as a facilitator, yoga teacher, coach or healer, support your students and clients in a trauma aware way? 

This question is the reason why we created this Trauma Aware Facilitation training.

Sabrina Tischer

"I really loved the program! It was so detailed and well explained, so much new information! As a coach, it is really important to have this knowledge about trauma and all that was covered in this program! I’m so happy that I did that, it will help me a lot in my work as a coach!"

Sheila Stephens

"This training is so well done. It goes into great detail without ever feeling boring or not applicable to the course. The presenters are concise and very knowledgeable in this subject matter."

Claudia Urdaneta

"This training is incredibly valuable!! I feel more prepared as a coach, with greater empathy for my clients and students, and better able to support them. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be a more effective coach, I'm already using what I learned in the training!"

Imagine a world where trauma is better understood and where there is more compassion and support in our schools, families, among friends and in our communities to heal…

If you’ve been wondering;

  • What is the difference between being trauma aware, trauma sensitive and trauma informed?
  • Trauma seems to be a minefield. How can I minimise the risk of triggering one of my students?
  • What is the basic protocol if one of my students or clients are triggered while they’re with me?
  • How do I recognise trauma in clients and students?
  • How do I recognise trauma in myself?
  • What are the different types of trauma and how do they show up?
  • What practices can I use to support my own regulation and what practices can I offer my students?

… then this course is for you. 


Brittney McKinley

"This training was much needed especially in the current environment we are in the world with many people who are unwell and unhealed. As a coach, I feel I now have the tools to provide more support, knowledge, and understanding to my clients, along with practices I can use in my daily life to support my own personal journey."

Stephanie Norby

"This training was so in-depth and thought-provoking ...Rachel, Lucy and Begoña did an amazing job detailing what trauma is, how it affects the body, what signs/symptoms we should be aware of and how we can show support as a facilitator (plus so much more, seriously!). I am walking away with a newfound appreciation for the human experience and a list of ways I can integrate trauma awareness practices into my sessions. Thank you so much, ladies!"

Fabiola Falcone

"I really loved this training, a lot of useful and practical information. It inspired me to be a better teacher and be more aware of the inner world of my students. Hope to create a safer place during my class. Human beings are so amazing and with compassion and empathy maybe we can create a better world. Thanks to Rachel, Lucy and Begona for sharing their wisdom and creating this amazing course."

Through this Trauma Aware Facilitation training you’ll gain an overview of what trauma is, how it can impact you or your clients and students, how to spot it and what you can do to minimise the risk of triggering trauma in a client or student. 


This course will also help you to identify when and how you can offer support to a student or client, and when they might need more specific support from a therapist or specialist so that you remain in integrity to your role as a teacher, coach or facilitator.  We will also discuss how you can recognise trauma in yourself and give some simple practices to support your own healing and regulation.
