Warrior 1 Yoga Workshop

{Trauma Sensitive Yoga}

Dates: July 28th, August 4th, August 11th, August 18th

Times: 12:00pm - 1:30pm

About Warrior 1 Yoga {Trauma-Sensitive Yoga}
Trauma-Sensitive yoga is a yoga practice that can increase connection with the breath, enabling the brain to become less aroused, and relaxation to begin. Yoga can rebuild connections with both the insula and prefrontal cortex, strengthening the mind-body connection. The practice can help a student to regain their sense of control and ownership over their own body and their own experience.  Both of which were taken in trauma and are essential to reclaim in the healing journey.

Our mission for providing trauma-sensitive yoga is to use yoga postures as a tool to notice what we feel in our bodies, work towards mind-body connection, to learn breathing techniques to calm the mind, practice being in the present, and to practice making choices about what to do with our bodies. Through yoga we can experiment with:

  • Breathing

  • Stretching

  • Strengthening

  • Resting

Our students are always in control of what they are doing with their body at all times. The teacher will give suggestions and several different safe variations for each posture and the student will always get to choose which form of the posture they would like to perform. The choice to do none of the suggestions or something else is ALWAYS available. The student is in control. The trauma-sensitive yoga practice is all about the freedom of choice and allowing the student to do what they feel is best for them at that time and for them to explore their own body however they see fit.

It is important that we make this practice accessible to all physical abilities. If there are physical restrictions please email Kim (kim@yogaeight.net) and we can provide accommodations for each student.

  • No experience necessary.

  • We strive to make the classes accessible to everybody regardless of physical ability.

This specific class is most appropriate for survivors of interpersonal trauma.  This includes but is not exclusive to trauma in the categories of psychological, physical, sexual, and religious.  

Who Can Attend?
Trauma survivors who are currently seeking healing through therapy.

There will be a few rules:

Participants must be undergoing therapy and must have the approval of their therapist before starting the classes.

Participants will not have to talk to other participants, making this class more comfortable for those individuals who find it difficult to be in groups. The instructors will be doing the talking.

Participants will be required to sign waivers of confidentiality. (it is not allowed to talk about who is in the class to honor everyone’s privacy) 

This is not a therapy session and there will be no supported processing of your experience. This is why we require each participant to be currently in therapy.

Benefits
- help a student to regain their sense of control and ownership over their own body and their own experience
