The LoveYourBrain Fundamentals Curriculum: For yoga teachers who want to delve further into LoveYourBrain’s approach and learn our specific 6 week introductory curriculum for TBI survivors and their caregivers. This unique curriculum incorporates TBI-focused yoga and meditation best practices, class themes to foster resilience and compassion, and conversation facilitation skills to support TBI survivors to discuss their healing through yoga and meditation.
Each class is designed around a theme that is informed by one of the ten key factors for cultivating resilience.

You will have the opportunity to both practice and teach parts of the curriculum to make the experience as applied as possible.
