The word is out! Yoga is good for you!! With a yoga studio in every neighborhood, like Starbucks…. not all yoga is the same. And not all yoga is appropriate for those who have experienced a traumatic event.

The amazing work of pioneer Bessel van der Kolk has shed new light, and hope, on how the body experiences trauma, and recovers from trauma. The mind may dissociate from the body. Yoga is a union of mind and body, bringing one back home to the body, getting to know oneself, with clarity.
Quoting van der Kolk “Yoga is most effective in coming back home, reclaiming your body’’.

This is a virtual LIVE event. All levels are welcome. Very appropriate for the beginner, and the athlete!
Wear comfortable clothing in a space for a yoga mat.

Cost is $12.00 for one class; $80.00 for a series of 10 classes.
Registration is required for access to the class. ZOOM link will be provided with registration.

Trauma

Details
Trauma leaves the nervous system dysregulated, and often overwhelmed and beyond the boundaries of tolerance, within ourselves, within our families, within our very being.

Dysregulation interferes with the feeling of being fully alive, in many ways, including the capacity to experience a moment of peace, living, working, loving, laughing, resting from a place of peace within.

Dysregulation affects the capacity to be at peace within relationships, and within the marketplace.

Trauma recovery promotes nervous system self-regulation, allowing for a spaciousness, being aware of triggers, creating space for a pause, thus responding to triggers, rather than reacting physically from a dysregulated nervous system.

Difficulty sleeping, not feeling rested, difficulty relaxing, muscle tension and pain, bursts of anger, withdrawing from family and friends, feelings of isolation and not fitting in, and dissociation, would all be signs of nervous system dysregulation.

Family members and friends also experience these symptoms, creating a secondary traumatic stress, and collective trauma that is passed down through generations.

Peace may mean different things to different people. Maybe it is a feeling of being grounded, confident in the ability to tolerate overwhelming feelings. Maybe it’s waking up in the middle of the night, with a felt sense of well being.

The idea of being at peace may seem as elusive, and so far out of reach, as Joy.

Healing from trauma is possible. This workshop will offer
non pharmacological interventions for trauma recovery: Post Traumatic Stress, Acute Traumatic Stress, Secondary Traumatic Stress, and Collective Trauma, as well Traumatic Grief. Those who suffer from trauma, individually and collectively, and those who care for them will benefit from this experience.

In this 90 minute group session Kathryn Bumgarner, RN, will be leading participants through exercises considered “contemplative practices” of trauma sensitive yoga, trauma sensitive meditation, and a bearing witness of a sacred space, holding a safe container for healing. These practices will provide a greater understanding of how traumatic experiences are stored in the body, and how to recover a sense of wellbeing, peace, calmness, groundedness, harmony and connection.

Participants will leave with an increased awareness and understanding of symptoms (possible triggers) surfacing, both within self or a loved one, with a resource for powerful self-regulation.
