With Fanny Priest Sunday, January 19th @ 2 PM – 4:40 PM Sliding Scale: $30 – $45
On the path to individual and collective healing, many of us are uncovering trauma as a root cause of suffering, and as an obstacle to living the lives of peace, pleasure, and creativity that we are meant for.
With its slow, supported poses and interior focus, yin yoga helps us create a safe container in which to process and release the discomfort and strong emotions that are often symptoms of trauma. As we increase our resilience in the face of these painful experiences, we lessen the grip that trauma has on our systems and our lives,
This introductory workshop is designed to offer an exploration of the ways in which yin yoga can assist in processing and healing trauma by helping to regulate the nervous system and restoring a sense of self-trust in our relationship with our bodies.
While this workshop will be gentle and trauma-informed, is not intended to diagnose or treat active or acute trauma, and may not be suitable for people experiencing PTSD or C-PTSD. It is highly recommended that folks who experience deeper, more complex trauma be under the care of a qualified therapist or counselor in order to participate in the workshop.
