Event description

Description

Life can seem like a blur of instances that ultimately shapes us. We respond to what happens in life the best way we know how, in the moment. This continues throughout our life, but what happens when we're stuck in a cycle - on repeat - and can't get past a way of responding, reacting or holding on?

Notice your mind and body through a yogic practice as our Trauma Informed Yoga Therapist, Shari Arial, guides you through acknowledging your thoughts, connecting to your body and processing what you feel when you move your body. Explore your mind-body connection in a small class environment. Gradually. Gently. Beginner Friendly. For those who occasionally or constantly work through anxiety, stress, trauma, PTSD, here is a peaceful practice for movement and mindfulness therapy. No yoga experience required.

The Mind-Body Connection

Where and how the brain responds to stimulus is not only expressed in our thinking, but in our body, too. Our thoughts have a direct effect on our body. What does the mind-body connection mean? The way we think is the way we hold our body. Back pain? Chest pain? Sore feet? What is your body telling you?

Anxiety, stress, trauma and PTSD are more common than you think - shared among many if not most of us - and because of this we offer a workshop to help you become connected to yourself again - because when we're connected to ourselves we empathize with people around us. This 21st century lifestyle asks for a lot. Yoga for Anxiety, Stress and Trauma is a mindful and gentle strategy to keep up with the demands. Aknowledgment, awareness and practice is the focus.

Our community has reached out to us to offer a regular series for continuing-education and regular weekly classes. Shari Arial facilitates a safe and supportive space for you to delve in to yourself and feel your body as it moves while she guides you to notice your thoughts and acknowledge correlations in mind-body for long term healing. We will be using a progressive approach to healing, focusing on a different theme each week.

FAQs

What can I expect during the workshop?
A: Students can expect a short centering meditation, gentle postures and movement focusing on noticing the body, breath work to build on coping skills and a short savasana.

How is this class different than a regular yoga class?
A: This class is trauma informed, meaning that the main goal is to facilitate a safe place to practice. It is a no touch class and specific wording is used as to allow the student to be in their own experience, rather than the use of imagery or 'yoga' language. Specific gentle postures are also used to facilitate release of tension from the body and calm the nervous system.

Is there talking involved?
A: No, in this setting there is no talking other than the instructor, Shari Arial, leading the class.

What will I learn?
A: Hopefully more awareness about yourself, breath and body movement to help you build your coping skills.

Do I have to have yoga experience?
A: The series is completely beginner friendly.

I have an injury. Can I attend?
A: Yes, the practice is completely modifiable to your needs and how you need to practice for your body. In fact, if there was a posture you connected with, you could stay there the whole class!

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
