A trauma sensitive class utilizing specific stress-release techniques and meditation. Yoga Nidra is a a guided, sleep-based meditation technique, where awareness is progressively withdrawn from the external stress triggers, the body, the process of breathing, the conscious mind, and finally, the unconscious mind. Various studies show that yoga nidra produces positive outcomes over a wide variety of stress disorders, and asserts that it lessens the effect of the fight-or-flight response by reactivity to stress. Embodied imagination stimulated by Yoga Nidra allows one to come face to face with physiological effects of trauma, work on transcending those effects, and envision a new embodied life forward.
This offering is designed to prevent or alleviate symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). Appropriate for veterans, military, first-responders and others who have experienced PTS or high stress.
Please bring a yoga mat, a pillow and something to cover your eyes (if that is a comfortable option for you).
Consumption of cannabis is not allowed on property.
