From 2-4pm
At THE pearl modern spa & boutique in Columbia, Maryland

Join me for a Trauma-Informed workshop at THE pearl modern spa &. boutique: Broaden your practice and learn tools to find mindfulness and resilience in life's more stressful moments for yourself and/or for your clients. Somatic therapies, such as trauma-informed yoga, have been proven to significantly improve symptoms of PTSD and depression in clinical studies. (Source: www.psychcentral.com)

Who is this workshop for?

Yoga teachers, school teachers, clinicians, healthcare workers, care-givers, or  those would simply like to know more about how trauma-informed yoga can help them navigate life's daily challenges.

Trauma-Informed Yoga involves tapping into the physical, energetic, emotional, and mental states and learning to resource by titrating between the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous system with somatic experiencing, dynamic movement, restorative postures, meditation, and breath-work. Students are encouraged to explore the poses to whatever extent they feel comfortable, learning to approach each posture and sensation with curiosity, in an effort to honor individual emotional and physical needs. Multiple variations for each pose will be offered for all levels and abilities, as will options for a more active or more restorative practice. This class will be adapted to all levels and abilities.

In this workshop we will discuss what trauma is, how to recognize it, and how to develop tools to help return to a more balanced state. While physical practice will comprise a significant portion of this workshop, much of this 2-hour session will be lecture-focused as we break-down the science and methodology behind this modality. 

I am an E-RYT, RYT-500, YACEP and Certified Advanced Trauma-Informed & Accessible Yoga Teacher. *Yoga Alliance Continuing Education (CE) Hours will be available to Yoga Alliance registered teachers.*
