Categorie(s): Wellness Professionals, Yoga,

When: Thursday, February 9, 2012

Time: 6:45 to 7:45 am PST

Learn what happens in the brain when trauma occurs, how it affects our biochemistry after the event, and how yoga can help bring our inner pharmacy back into balance. You will learn a centering practice for trauma that creates a safe and sacred container, which in addition to fostering the therapeutic bond, allows the trauma releasing work to proceed, often without a story attached.

We will discuss and practice yoga techniques that lay the groundwork for trauma recovery and then gradually begin to restore equilibrium in the traumatized individual. We will discuss how safe yoga practices that include pranayama, mantra, mudra, bhavana (visual imagery) and movement can empower the student or client to be the agent of their own healing.
