Location: Outside

We rise through Awareness, Solution, Healing, Empathy and Service breaking down barriers of common stigmas around PTSD, Racial and Social Injustices, Addiction, Childhood Trauma and more. This Trauma informed Yoga Workshop is designed to explore the many components trauma and the different layers one may experience while facing and or functioning in crisis. Students will be guided through a trauma conscious yoga session with time allotted for Q&A on why several yoga postures are restricted from the trauma practice. It is suggested that participants come prepared with a personal journal, comfortable attire for movement portion of the workshop and an open mind. This practice may challenge some of the traditional yoga asana movements but will enlighten students on how to keenly adhere to what feels right when exploring the eight limbs of yoga. Students will leave this workshop with a greater understanding of self and tangible tools to begin or continue their personal journey on the path towards Shanti. We are passionate about service! A portion of the proceeds will go towards sponsoring a student in a shelter facility and or low cost housing development.
