Event Details

Not all stresses and traumas are created equal, and children experience numerous situations that impact their assumptions of safety in the world and in their bodies. Bullying, parental divorce, separation, an accident, loss of a loved one, and so many other adverse childhood experiences have the potential to be life altering and traumatic. Traumatic stress impacts kids differently, making it a challenge to identify and respond in the most beneficial ways. With the right knowledge, tools, and appropriate use of self, you can support them in healing, resiliency and growth.

This unique workshop integrates cutting–edge knowledge and research about traumatic stress, the brain–body connection, and how yoga and mindfulness practices help to rewire the brain for healthier and more resilient functioning and reconnection. You will gain a deeper knowledge base about what it means to be a trauma–informed practitioner, and engage in experientially based techniques that are sure to enrich and transform your already established practice or teaching style. This workshop is equally accessible to practitioners who have no experience to those who have extensive experience with yoga and mindfulness. You?ll be equipped with the why and the how of implementing new skills into your work and your interactions with kids.
