Course Description

This workshop series is designed to help you build your capacity to respond to stressors with greater somatic self-knowledge so that you can feel more resourced, and less distressed, in day-to-day life, as well as in moments of significant or accumulated overwhelm. Over the course of four workshop-style classes, we’ll unpack the essentials of nervous system anatomy and physiology, including polyvagal theory, and integrate that learning with a multitude of somatic explorations and experiential exercises. As we work through the body-based practices, you will have opportunities to practice regulation skills in an environment of care, curiosity and consent. You’ll also learn tools that support a lifetime of self-tending and engender an ethic of empathy and commitment to community care. Props: Soft "Coregeous" Ball, Blanket, Journal, Paper, Markers/Pastels/Colored Pencils.

"While modern applications of postural yoga can be very goal-centered, our time together in class is a fusion of outer-body alignment and inner-body focus, concentrating our curiosity on what is possible when we cultivate presence through movement and breath.                    My approach to teaching yoga integrates the wisdom and subtlety of yoga practices with my training in acupuncture, trauma healing and functional movement to support a healthy, and well resourced body-mind. The invitation in my classes is to explore embodiment in a space that is welcoming and oriented towards honoring your own needs and discoveries on the mat. While modern applications of postural yoga can be very goal-centered, our time together in class is a fusion of outer-body alignment and inner-body focus, concentrating our curiosity on what is possible when we cultivate presence through movement and breath. My classes are trauma-informed and inclusive. I have been practicing yoga since 1998, teaching since 2007, and holding space for healing since 2008. In addition to teaching yoga, I work with people individually in my healing practice, weaving together acupuncture, trauma and nervous system healing and Somatic Experiencing.
