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.

If you are unsure about applying for the full Somatic Experiencing Professional Training, we invite you to first attend one of our introductory workshops to help you determine if the full training program is for you.

Beginning I Course Objectives:

  1. Understand the physiological basis of trauma and identify how maladaptive physiological responses to threat, and their lack of resolution, may contribute to the formation of PTSD symptoms.
  2. Track sensory and sensory-motor experience in clients and convert other elements of experience into sensory and sensory-motor experience.
  3. Demonstrate working through disorganized sensory and sensory-motor experience using the concepts of orientation, stabilization, containment, resourcing, titration, pendulation, and self-regulation to discharge un-discharged arousal in order to help organism return to homeostasis.
  4. Identify adaptive and maladaptive physiology of activation and deactivation in animals and human beings exposed to threat and its aftermath, such as incomplete orienting and defensive responses of fight, flight, and freeze.
  5. Demonstrate working with language that supports the tracking of sensation.
