WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?
This program is for anyone wishing to explore personal practices for healing and resiliency, and to practice within a community of care from your own home.
It is also a great experiential learning foundation for those wishing to train in an integrative approach to trauma-informed yoga, including yoga teachers, social workers, community workers and social justice advocates, mental health and health professionals. This program can be taken stand-alone for personal or professional development, or as part of our 100hr Certification in Trauma-Informed Yoga & Embodied Social Change.
Drawing from yoga, somatics, embodied mindfulness, functional breathwork and neuroscience, this structured program will give you:
- Practices for connecting body, mind and heart
- Practices for mind-body resourcing, healing and resiliency
- Supportive tools for stress, anxiety, emotional and mental health
- Foundational education on the stress response, nervous system regulation and embodied resilience
- Supporting healing, connection, and meaning-making through story and creative expression
- Daily mini-practices for integration in day-to-day life
- Downloadable educational resources and exercises for self-study and self-practice
- A community of care – recognising the importance of collective wellbeing, practicing together in a small group with the opportunity for shared check-ins (optional), feeling connected and supported
- An approach that honours our shared humanity and celebrates our individual wholeness, uniqueness and diversity.
This program is founded in an integrated framework that is trauma-informed, accessible, inclusive, mental health aware and person-centered with a social justice heart. It is suitable for all levels of yoga experience and abilities. All activities within the sessions are invitational and optional. Group practice guidelines will be established together at the commencement of the program.
Live participation required: Please note this program is offered live via Zoom and sessions are not recorded to support confidentiality, commitment and participation. You will receive downloadable educational resources and practices as part of the program for you to keep.
Maximum participants: 20
The program is delivered in English.
This program will be led by our director Mei Lai Swan, with at least one support facilitator.
Our facilitators are trained yoga teachers with specialised training in trauma-informed facilitation and embodied social justice practice.
