with Stefanie Dominik
Trauma affects many lives in many different ways. Sexual violence, physical abuse or assault, war and combat, severe illness, car accidents, community violence, and other forms of trauma can shake our foundation to the core. While trauma is notorious for disconnecting us from ourselves and the world around us, yoga can help us move toward integration and transformative healing.
Appropriate for yoga teachers, mental health and medical professionals, educators, community workers, and anyone interested in learning more about trauma-informed yoga,
this workshop will provide you with foundational tools to use yoga to support trauma survivors.
In this workshop, you’ll gain an understanding of:
-How trauma affects our system neurobiologically, psycho-spiritually, and energetically
-A chakra framework for understanding trauma and recovery
-The unique challenges trauma survivors face in yoga and how to address these
-Practical steps to make yoga more inclusive, safe, and therapeutic for those struggling with posttraumatic stress
-How to support a triggered student
-Self-care and minimizing vicarious trauma
