In this workshop, we will explore resilience in the face of traumatic experiences, and resources to connect yogis and trauma survivors to healing aspects of the yoga practice. Informed by trauma theory and the chakra system, this approach brings a strength-based, titrated approach to healing that is built upon the concepts of ahimsa, nonviolence, and the professional commitment to do no harm.
In this workshop, students will learn:
- How to apply chakra work to trauma recovery;
- How to integrate resourcing into group classes;
- When to refer clients for therapeutic work beyond the scope of yoga practice alone.
