About this Event

A yoga and mindfulness workshop led by Loretta Curtin, who through a series of movements and choices will set us on a journey to reconnect with our own bodies and minds.

Open to all women*.

This session has been designed for survivors of any kind of violence or for all of us women suffering and/or recoving from trauma, but everyone will be welcome.

Please bring your own yoga mat.

What is Trauma?

Trauma is an emotional response to a negative event or a series of negative events. An estimated 90% of the population has been exposed to a traumatic event*. Trauma is complicated. It can be obvious, with a clear cause, and symptoms that seem to make sense. Or, trauma can be buried beneath depression, anxiety, and anger, without any recognizable origin. The causal event may have occurred a week ago, or half a century in the past.

Principles of Trauma-Informed Yoga:

We assume that anyone walking through the door may have experienced trauma.

We recognize our students as experts on their bodies and experiences.

We aim to create a safe, comfortable space that is empowering for all students.

We strive to provide options and modifications for yoga poses recognizing that there is no “ideal” shape.

We avoid too much stimulation with music, scents, objects in the room, lights, etc.

We acknowledge that some poses and yoga props might make students feel vulnerable.

We refrain from rigid statements and cueing and instead use language of inquiry and choice.

We refrain from giving “hands-on assists” or apply them cautiously if we do use them.

We teach postures, movements, and ways of breathing that facilitate calmness.
