What is Trauma Sensitive Yoga?

Many people have had traumatic experiences in their lives and come to yoga for healing.  This workshop is born out of a desire to be of service, a desire to make yoga informative, inclusive, relevant and accessible.  Please join us to learn more about one of the most prominent topics in yoga: trauma-based practice and teaching.

Come learn about the impact of trauma, how it lives in the body and how to be mindful of working with people with such a condition.  This workshop is geared towards expanding our understanding of trauma and will give you basic preventative tools to integrate into your classes.

This interactive, experiential and lecture-based workshop will teach you:

  • The role of cultural trauma in our society
  • How trauma manifests and lives in the body
  • The process of yoga to address healing from trauma
  • What scientific research tells us about yoga and trauma
  • Understanding “triggers” and how to avoid and or manage them
  • Learn to be sensitive and inclusive of those with trauma in any class you might teach


Cole Schlam is a leading trauma sensitive teacher in Denver, CO. Cole’s passion is to support everyday people as they safely and playfully step into their own confidence and connect deeply with themselves. As a constant student herself, Cole walks side by side all of us on this crazy, heart-filled journey called life using the yoga tools she has found along the way. The personal awareness Cole has experienced in her own practice has helped her both navigate discomfort and cultivate a deep sense of ease within herself. Cole aims to create an accessible space for others to do the same.

In addition to teaching in the Denver area, Cole is also the Program Director for Comeback Yoga, bringing trauma-informed yoga to the military community and was the co-founder of a trauma-sensitive yoga program called Buffalo + Sparrow Yoga Collective.
