About the Course

Are you ready to help others master their stress and move beyond trauma?

Our online training program is designed by trauma experts who will show you how to master your own emotions first in order to liberate others from their stress and suffering.

You will learn how to combine bodywork techniques, breathing patterns, movement and voice to release trauma and remove emotional and energetic blockages.

With more than 160 videos, quizzes, articles, 6 live sessions and assignments, you will be able to master the tools needed to help yourself and other people heal.

This program is suitable for everyone who is interested in changing themselves and the world by becoming a trauma-informed facilitator:

→ Bodyworkers, breath workers, acupuncture practitioners
→ Psychologists, counsellors, social workers and mental health practitioners
→ Naturopaths, nutritionists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, dancers and yoga teachers.

The course comes in two parts. The first part explores the nature and impacts of trauma for better understanding of potential recovery mechanisms. While the second part is focused on trauma recovery through our signature Bodywork Method and its powerful components, as well as emotional, legal, and ethical considerations of working with trauma.

This course is the Level 1 of our “Bodywork & Somatic Therapies for Healing Trauma” program, intended to help you in your own self journey to release trauma. In Level 1, you also gain skills to become a trauma-informed facilitator in case you are already working with clients.

By joining InnerCamp, you become part of something bigger, a community of like-minded people with similar intentions. You will also embark on a transformative journey that is designed to make a positive shift in your holistic career and boost your personal growth. We give you the tools, the safe space and the time to integrate all the teachings in your own pace.

Once you are enrolled in InnerCamp program, you join our global community of holistic practitioners and teachers. Each training is intended to assist students in forming their own opinions regarding the role of holistic practices in overall well-being and in developing skills to guide others in one-on-one / group sessions. We create a quality learning environment and experiences that will equip students with up-to-date and trustworthy knowledge, as well as confidence to build a solid foundation for their holistic business.

Our educational content is presented in form of articles, downloadable materials, pre-recorded videos, and live sessions. Assignments and quizzes will help you integrate the teachings and do some personal introspection to better utilize all InnerCamp techniques. Apart from the live sessions, we also invite our students to all our weekly workshops and monthly Q&A calls, where you will gain all the tools you need to become a skilled facilitator.

Program live sessions provide direct and instant support as well as the opportunity to network with other students. We believe that live interaction and immediate feedback enhance educational process. Live format is a useful extension to e-learning: there are often questions and queries that are not easily answered by the resources. Modern students prefer to get instant responses and exemplifications, and want to make sure that what they have acquired is correct and they know how to use it in the daily professional life. These sessions also act as great icebreakers for those who lack confidence and experience in guiding others, as they can practice this skill in a very inclusive, safe and supervised environment. All live sessions are recorded and can be accessed on our e-learning platform at any time.

InnerCamp Workshops are sessions for general public and they serve as a quick-fix to a specific issue. Normally we tackle problems that don’t require in-depth work and can be relieved or fully resolved within 1,5-2 hours. We focus on stress-relief, energy rebalance, immunity boost, relationship harmonization, as well as more complex topics as ancestral healing, feminine rhythms, inner child work, etc.. Our techniques are proven as effective as therapy sessions. Workshops serve as introduction and real time showcase of what Breathwork, Tantra and Shamanism are capable of when acquired in the right way against everyday life stressors and past triggers. We always record live streams so they can be replayed within 72 hours if the session was missed or a revision needed. As a program student, you also get free access to our workshops.

Covid-19 notice

This event cannot be held with masks or social distancing, so we ask everyone to be responsible and take the necessary steps to protect themselves and others.
