Learn how to use yoga and mindfulness to bring about complete healing of body and mind.

About this Event

Please note that completion of Part 1 is a pre-requisite for Part 2.

We all suffer from the effects of trauma, but some of us more than others. Trauma can come from childhood, single events including medical interventions, and the stress of modern life.

Science is pointing to the fact that trauma is held in all cells of the body and must be released by the body for complete healing to occur. Talking therapy is only part of the picture and mindful body-based approaches like Trauma-Sensitive Yoga can be a vital part of the healing journey.

The foundation for this Yoga & Mindfulness course is carefully exploring safety in our body-mind. This is a useful skill-set that we can use in our daily life to help us to sleep, rest, connect with others and find more joy in life.

There is no one size fits all way for healing so the course offers choices within the practice as we learn skills of self-regulation and resilience-building through the possibilities of moving, sound, breathing and relaxation. As we begin to attune to the ways that work for us, we can make better choices to begin to re-wire our nervous system. This tending and befriending gradually opens the door to a sense of greater self-empowerment.

When we have PTSD or other kinds of trauma, regular Yoga classes may not feel safe enough to relax into and get its benefits. For example we may finding breathing practices and closing our eyes too uncomfortable. So, Sally is offering this specialised class to help us find our own ways into an appropriate practice. She draws on 19 years experience of teaching Yoga, Mindfulness & Compassion, as well as her own personal journey of healing trauma and her study of the science and practice of trauma healing. Over the past 3 years she has been offering trauma-sensitive Yoga & Mindfulness training to organisation in the North East.

The courses can be taken consecutively as one course or you can do the parts separately. Part 1 is a pre-requisite for Part 2. This is a popular course that runs regularly and you are welcome to repeat part 1 as many times as you like to embed the learning. Re-wiring our nervous system can be slow and we need to work gently and appropriately. If you repeat the course you will find the themes and theory are repeated (with some evolution over time) but the movement sequences are different, so you get to consolidate your learning and introduce some variety.

If you have any questions about the course, please do not hesitate to contact Sally at sallyroach1@hotmail.co.uk.

We offer concession prices for people who are struggling financially. Contact hub@magicmonastery.com for more information.
