with Sean Feit

overcomeOnly a few spaces left, reserve your space now! It isn’t all in your head; trauma affects the totality of our embodied experience. This workshop will explore the experience and healing of trauma on the path of yoga.

In this 5 hour workshop you will:

  • Understand the basic principles of the nervous system, including its response to traumatic events.
  • Become aware that traumatic events happen in everyday life and are expressed in the body.
  • Consider how the healing of our traumatic experiences is an integral part of spiritual life.
  • Be introduced to Somatic Experiencing and learn how to recognize trauma in yourself and in yoga/meditation students.
  • Learn language and asana modifications that support healing and decrease the possibility of re-triggering traumatic response.
  • Understand the relationship of energetic manifestations in yoga to trauma, and the relationship of trauma to kundalini and kriya.
