Come explore how the body remembers all we encounter. Our bodies hold the key to healing, transformation, & recovery.
Yoga connects body, breath, and mind. Trauma happens in our bodies. The deep body-mind connection that Yoga offers has the potential to be a pathway for healing and resiliency. This workshop is built on the foundations of somatic psychology, current research in neuroscience, and the many yogic principles including nonviolence (ahimsa) and truthfulness (satya) that create a route for more curiosity, peace, and joy.
In this workshop, you will:
*Gain an understanding of developmental wounds & shock trauma
*Discover how trauma affects the nervous system
*Build in-the-moment skills to work with physiological manifestations of trauma
*Learn tools to hone your sensitivity to trauma symptoms in students/clients
*Study practical ways to use yoga in a private setting to benefit yourself, and your students or clients affected by trauma
*Experience yoga that is trauma sensitive
*Identify your limitations and know when to refer out
This daylong workshop is beneficial for yoga instructors and mental health providers alike
