The Trauma-Informed Principles of Yoga workshop will broadly cover the topic of trauma, the brain, yoga, interoception, and how yoga teachers and other professionals in the service field can become better aware of signs of trauma in their students or people they serve and can develop some tools for their toolboxes to meet the needs of people living with trauma symptoms or PTSD. This workshop is only meant to be introductory. All interested in this topic are welcome to join--yoga teachers, school teachers, therapists, direct care providers, anyone interested in trauma sensitivity. Fee is $125. FMI and to register, please contact Tisha Bremner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join guitarist Jeff Rojo and yoga teacher Beth Jones for a music-driven, sound-inspired gentle yoga class this holiday. The percussive guitar directly meets the body’s own strings--sinews, tendons, nerves--often making it possible to let go the mind alittle more quickly so the body can feel and allow. Meditation & pranayama (breath work) open the class; deep rest in silence follows. All levels. Fee is $30, payable to Beth Jones Yoga. Location: Center for Health Insight, 98 Second St., Hallowell, ME. Register: email@example.com
At the New Year, we make a vow; usually a kind of promise to reform some bad habit or shadow side of ourselves. This miniretreat combines Kundalini Yoga, which always assists with bringing opposites to center, with the elemental drumming of Alfred Lund, 5-Rhythms drummer & energy healer. The technologies of Kundalini Yoga can bring about a feeling of your potential and your systems innate ability to find balance between dark and light. Join us just after the New Year! Chai tea, handouts for chanting, and a gong bath to bring about energetic clearing. All welcome. Fee is $40. Space is very limited to 12. Register: firstname.lastname@example.org
This workshop explores the application of Trauma-Informed Principles of Yoga to Kundalini Yoga. It will broadly cover the topic of trauma, the brain, yoga, interception, and how yoga teachers and other professionals in the service field can become better aware of signs of trauma in their students or people they serve and can develop some tools for their toolboxes to meet the needs of people living with trauma symptoms or PTSD. This workshop is only meant to be introductory and is exploratory, meaning we may become thoughtful together and find ways to adapt the necessary implementations of kriyas in an effort to be trauma-informed. A Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga practice will be given as well as experiential exercises from Bessel Van Der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score. All interested in this topic are welcome to join.
