About the Event

Yoga is a very unique tool in healing, and we understand more and more about how and why the more we research and understand the nervous system. Ultimately, though, yoga is not about parts of you- it is about you as an inherently whole being.

The world “healing” is used as a way of addressing and feeling that wholeness, not about “fixing” you.

This workshop is not about poses or breathing or even about meditation or relaxation, although we will do all of those things. 

This workshop is about you, and how to use these techniques to serve your unique being, which holds your history, your present, and your dreamt future in the ways your responses to events in your life impact the way you feel in the world.

Trauma is not an event. Trauma is a process of your system adapting to overwhelm by taking you out of your body. While symptoms of trauma are unquestionably challenging, it is important to recognize that they developed out of the life force your body survived or is surviving with. As such, they must be approached with respect, self-compassion, and great gentleness as you bring yourself back to a place of embodiment.

This is a gradual process. So as we work, I will teach you first and foremost about reading your own body system's messages and ways to adapt movement, breath, and focuses to create the experience of connection in your nervous system.

Skills:

  • Understanding interpersonal trauma and our protection responses
  • Finding a felt sense of boundaries, choice, and autonomy
  • Uncovering connection to self, others, world
  • Discerning fight/ flight, freeze, and shutdown responses and how to work with them
  • Grounding
  • Centering
  • Working with rhythm, movement, and breath

JOIN US FOR ALL FIVE SESSIONS! REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
