Yoga for Healing
Join me at Hawthorne Wellness Center in Portland, Oregon for my weekly class, Yoga for Healing on Fridays, from 12pm - 1:15pm. This class begins on June 12th and will run on a weekly basis through August 1st.
People who are navigating healing - whether emotional or physical, recent or historic, can utilize yoga as a holistic self-care practice that supports them in connecting compassionately with their body, developing grounding techniques, and experiencing the soothing benefits of a moving meditation practice. This class offers participants an invitational yoga space to listen to the language of their own body and to develop a balance of strength and suppleness that is both physical and mental. The instructor draws from a trauma-informed lens which includes encouraging students to personalize or modify the practice and experience to suit their immediate needs. Contact me at email@example.com for questions or inquiries.
My organization, The Breathe Network, is partnering with OAASIS (Oregon Abuse Advocates and Survivors in Service) for this special event in Portland, Move to Stop Abuse. I invite you to join us on Sunday, June 7th, from 1pm – 3pm, as we build the movement to stop child sexual abuse and promote holistic healing by engaging our community in an afternoon of embodied practices – including dance, willPower Method® and yoga. I will be instructing the yoga sequence as the final component of the 90 minute practice.
This special event, Move to Stop Abuse, will be an opportunity for all of us to come together and move in an intentional and invitational space, to learn about the wonderful ways our bodies can help us heal and live more fully, and to fundraise in support of the movement to end child sexual abuse and expand opportunities for holistic healing.
All proceeds will go to OAASIS’ and The Breathe Network’s efforts to comprehensively address the impacts of sexual trauma and to end sexual abuse.
In this interactive workshop, participants will examine how their own wellness is directly connected to the way in which they are able to effectively and compassionately connect with others whether personally or professionally. Believing that each person must define for themselves what self-care looks like, what practices are meaningful, what is the appropriate balance for them – this workshop creates a space for participants to reflect on what has supported their wellness, what gets in the way of their ability to thrive as professionals and in their personal lives, and how they might pave a more balanced path ahead. We will utilize the practices of yoga and mindfulness, including optional movement, breathing exercises and guided meditation – as well as journaling – to identify what resonates in our own bodies and what insights we can gain from listening inside.
Join me for The Breathe Network's bi-monthly “TBN Practitioner Interest Chat” on google+ hangout to learn the answers to these questions and to ask your own!
