Samhain is a Gaelic festival positioned halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. It recognizes the start of winter and the darker half of the year. Traditionally, Samhain is a sacred time when the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead is thinnest.

We will celebrate this time by coming together to remember those who have come before us. You are welcome to bring a photo of a loved one who has passed on for our altar space.

We will gently flow together with the sounds of breath and drums by the light of candles. Enjoy an extended savasana with live drumming, oils, and massage.

We will finish the evening with wine, stories, memories, and celebration!!!

Most of us have had some first-hand experience with a traumatic event-an automobile accident, an unexpected loss of a loved one, being affected by a natural disaster such as a hurricane – and over time, we are able to recover. But for others, the experience of a traumatic event is more severe or long-lasting, and thus has a more dramatic effect. Recent research suggests that yoga can be helpful to those affected by the impact of trauma.

In this training, we will review the psychology and neurobiology of trauma, current concepts in trauma theory, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and current approaches to helping individuals with PTSD. We will discuss research that indicates how yoga can be helpful to individuals recovering from trauma. A model for offering trauma-sensitive yoga classes will be offered, with a focus on teacher and classroom qualities that can help you provide a safe and healing space for students.

Learning Objectives:

1) Understand the ways trauma affects the brain and body including the development of PTSD.

2) Learn yogic practices that can be applied to relieving trauma symptoms

3) Name the essential elements of a trauma-sensitive yoga class

4) Learn specific approaches to teaching yoga to students with trauma.

This workshop is appropriate for Yoga teachers, Mental Health professionals, yoga students, and other wellness professionals seeking to learn more about how yoga can be useful in healing the effects of trauma. Yoga Teachers can receive 5.5 CEU hours for this workshop
