21oct1:00 pm4:00 pmYoga & Mindfulness Strategies for Children: Effective Interventions for Traumatic Stress & Anxiety

Event Details

Not all stresses and traumas are created equal, and children experience all kinds of 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. This unique workshop integrates hands on and ready to use techniques with cutting-edge research about traumatic stress, the brain-body connection, and how yoga and mindfulness practices help to actually rewire the brain for healthier and more resilient functioning and reconnection. You will walk away with the know-how to help children who experience anxiety, depression, profound stress and self regulation difficulties to identify triggers, grow more self-aware, soothe their central nervous system, and feel greater overall safety and joy.
