What is Trauma-Informed Yoga, and how does this program work?

Using movement and the practice of yoga as an invitation to shift the focus and power from the external to the internal. How would you like to move? How does it feel inside to make choices in the present moment? 

Each week we will come together to share time and movement, an authentic shared experience, where there may be moments where you begin to feel your embodied self. Oftentimes, and in service of survival, we disconnect from what it feels like inside and what it feels like to make choices based on what we’re feeling. During this hour, you’re welcome to explore and experiment with present moment choice making, with noticing sensation, and the experience of participating with other people in our community, whether live or recorded. 

Cameras are optional: You’re welcome to keep your camera on or off; the facilitator will have their camera on during each class.

There is no expectation to be a certain fitness level or have any previous yoga experience. You may participate with the movement in whatever way feels useful and safe for you.

We want to acknowledge your courage in showing up for yourself in this way and we’re honored to be with you.  

We meet for 60 minutes on Saturday mornings at 11am EST. Each class will consist of 45 minutes of movement and then time for some thoughts and questions at the end of the session. We will also have private group platform where the facilitator will be sharing some links and resources and a place for us to connect during the week.  

What is needed: 

If you’d like, you’re welcome to practice on a yoga mat or in a chair.

Your Trauma-Informed Yoga Facilitator

Throughout my life, I have done different things. I hold a Masters in Education, I’ve opened a NYC restaurant, I had an online business, and even wrote a novel (still in my drawer). I’ve also spent those same years on the yoga mat, as a student and as a facilitator since 2008. Yoga was a path for me. It helped me notice what it felt like to move and live inside my body.

I’m trained as a crisis counselor and I received my certification as a TCTSY-F (Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga Facilitator). I studied Polyvagal Theory with Deb Dana and this year will be in a year-long study with Bonnie Badenoch, a heart-based training in relational neuroscience for healing trauma. I recently published an article for Voices Against Torture, an International Journal on Human Rights. I facilitate trauma informed yoga for groups, one-on-one, co-direct yoga teacher trainings as well as teach trauma information modules for various yoga schools. I also share this practice for organizational events and teach seminars on this topic.
