Event description

Description

Together we will explore how we can lead and engage in movement practices in a manner that accommodates many of the unique physical, mental and spiritual impacts of trauma, while also nourishing a person’s capacity to participate in and heal through somatic practices. Given the pervasive levels of trauma within our society, many people carry the residue of past and ongoing harms within their shape and may be more vulnerable to being re-traumatized or triggered in the context of movement practices like yoga, dance and group exercise. At the same time, movement is also considered to be an antidote to the stifling physiological and psychological impacts of trauma and therefore, integrating mindful movement and body-inclusive practices into healing can be uniquely transformative.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Learn about the wide spectrum of traumatic events and experiences

  • Discover the physiological impacts of trauma and how the body can be a key resource for healing

  • Consider a variety of cutting-edge trauma healing theories and practices

  • Identify key principles to sharing somatic practices in a trauma-informed manner

  • Engage in a variety of movement and mindfulness-based practices and exercises

  • Practice sharing trauma-informed movement, breathing and meditation

  • Investigate accessible ways to incorporate trauma-informed somatic practices into one’s personal or professional work

  • Intentionally reflect on the ways in which one’s own healing process may serve as a resource for sharing trauma-informed practices

This weekend workshop is suitable for counsellors, psychologists, doctors, nurses, yoga teachers, fitness instructors, and anyone else who works in care giving professions or who is interested in learning more about somatic practices.

Early bird price of $250 until January 1st. Regular ticket price $295.
