Description:

These times are complicated, and sometimes overwhelming. Isolation and stress

compounded may increase or create anxiety, depression and/or symptoms of post-

traumatic stress. It is also common for interpersonal conflict to intensify, and it can be hard

to know where to turn. As we figure out how to return to an active world, we may feel

heightened anxiety or overwhelm about change. Those who have been on the front lines all

this time may be feeling depleted.


Yoga can be a wonderful tool in the healing process. The practice of yoga can allow us to

create a safe space within ourselves to reconnect the parts of us that may feel severed or

lost. It can allow us to build tools to find a sense of spaciousness and connection within our

own situations, whatever they are. As this reconnection occurs, yoga can teach us to calm

our nervous systems with breath, physical poses, and meditation; and to gradually undo the

chronic tension, pain, and emotional and physical responses resulting from the trauma’s

imprint. Yoga teaches us that we are already whole, and that our identity is not the

experiences we go through, but the self that can touch on peace, self-understanding, and

joy regardless of our circumstances.


In this workshop, we will use the protocol I have created for healing trauma to address

these specific concerns. You will learn to use the practices to read the messages in your

symptoms and to address them according to what they tell you. These practices are adaptable for all mobilities, and no experience is necessary. All bodies

are welcome. This workshop is free and open to all online, in partnership with The Dove Project.
