  • Yoga for Everyone and Trauma Informed Practice - ONLINE COURSE

    Yoga for Everyone and Trauma Informed Practice - ONLINE COURSE

    Friday, May 29th, 6:00pm - 9:00pm
    Yoga for Everyone and Trauma Informed Practice - ONLINE COURSE
    Live Stream - ONLINE COURSE

    Holding space is a continual learning process. 

    This course will explore themes of inclusion and safety to build skillfulness among teachers.
    Although teachers show up with positive intent, something may be amiss in the process. Many folks do not feel welcome and/or face obstacles to participate, and people can be adversely affected by what happens in yoga classes.
    Through discussion about the dynamics of power and privilege, participants will learn more about systems of oppression, and pathways to personal and collective liberation to offer yoga in a way that honours the tradition and respects the full spectrum of human diversity. Everyone has been touched by trauma in some way, and t here is an urgent need for trauma - sensitive yoga. Creating a container with protocols for safe practice can support students in using yoga as part of their healing process.
    This course will explore the language of invitation and inquiry to encourage choice and autonomy in yoga practice. An atmosphere of allowing where options are offered  throughout a class instead of relying on blanket  statements (such as,“listen to your body”) at the beginning of class can empower students to adapt according to their unique needs.
    We will explore issues related to: potential triggers; assumptions; praise and competition; and the subtleties of consent and hands - on adjustments. This is an opportunity to examine these topics free of judgment. By exploring strengths - based approaches to yoga, teachers can be well resourced in serving diverse populations.
    Coursework will also focus on supporting yourself to serve in a sustainable way and addressing issues that may arise (such as, negotiating boundaries, dealing with burnout, etc.).
    Learning Objectives:
    • Gain awareness about inclusion and the importance of strengths-based approaches.
    • Develop an understanding of trauma and how to design trauma-informed offerings.
    • Build care capacities to address issues as needed and serve in a sustainable way.
    Dates and Times:
    May 29-31, 2020
    • Friday 6 pm to 9 pm
    • Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 4 pm (both days)

  • Live Stream Workshop - Yoga for Creativity

    Live Stream Workshop - Yoga for Creativity

    Friday, May 29th, 1:30pm - 3:30pm
    Live Stream Workshop - Yoga for Creativity
    Creativity flows within every one of us, but there are times in life when we feel disconnected, and blocked from our true artistic selves.
    For many of us, Yoga and art are intrinsically linked, and with intentional nurturing of our inner artist through asana and meditation we can create space to tune back into the natural ebb and flow of our creative forces.
    We’ll begin with an exploration into your own relationship with creativity and self expression. Followed by a meditation, and a gentle yoga and art practice to help you reconnect to your innate creativity.
    You will leave Yoga for Creativity with:
    • A closer relationship to your own creativity.
    • Written reflections on your relationship to creativity and self expression.
    • A renewed energy and sense of belonging.
    • New skills to help ride the ebb and flow of the creative tides.
    For this workshop you will need:
    • A journal or a pad of paper
    • Your favourite writing tool
    • Your favourite drawing tool (optional - but encouraged)
    Cost: $65.00 per person.
