Widening the Embrace: A Trauma-Informed Exploration of Kundalini Yoga

Led by Beth Jones

This workshop explores the application of Trauma-Informed Principles of Yoga to Kundalini Yoga.  It will broadly cover the topic of trauma, the brain, yoga, interoception, and how yoga teachers and other professionals in the service field can become better aware of signs of trauma in their students or people they serve and can develop some tools for their toolboxes to meet the needs of people living with trauma symptoms or PTSD.  This workshop is only meant to be introductory and is exploratory, meaning we may become thoughtful together and find ways to adapt the necessary implementations of kriyas in an effort to be trauma-informed.  A Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga practice will be given as well as experiential exercises from Bessel Van Der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score.  All interested in this topic are welcome to join.

This workshop is open to everyone (you do not need to be a yoga teacher to benefit from this workshop)
