Trauma Informed Mindfulness – The Science and Practice of Being 

“Trauma” is everywhere. It’s the way we interact with the world, signaled by our nervous system and its innate reaction to ensure our survival. Understanding this, and how our bodies register and retain trauma physically and psychologically, holds the key to understanding who we are, why we are, and how we can be our happiest and best selves. Through a practiced approach to self-reflection – embedded within the very definition and purpose of yoga – we can all move through the world more purposefully, calmly and confidently, and achieve more in our lives than we ever thought possible.

This workshop promotes the customization of a group or individual’s yoga practice to suit their own unique path and lifestyle, drawing from various tools and practices within the scope of classical and traditional yoga. We will explore popular “trauma-informed” yoga techniques, their anatomical significance, and ways to adapt your own daily practice to reveal your fullest self.
