The Level 1 Training focuses on an in-depth scope of practice and awareness unique to the evidence-based portion of our four-pronged training approach, “The WAE Techniques”. The emphasis is on utilizing yoga and meditation techniques as tools for students to discover self-regulation by way of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and address cumulative stress, residual stress, and trauma unique to the service lifestyle.

During this training students will explore the evidence-based “WAE Techniques” supported by the knowledge of the neuroscience of the human stress response. Trainees will begin to become familiar with “invisible wounds” including post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, moral injury, and military sexual trauma. This training provides an introduction to the Level 2 Training accessible and adaptive “WAE Protocols”.
