Trauma Sensitive yoga for conferences
When planning a conference, either virtually or in person, the goal is to produce an event that leaves your conference participants with warm memories from the event (so that they will come back next year!).We really love trauma sensitive yoga for its ability to inspire self love, post traumatic growth and to deepen the ability to navigate and mitigate trauma echos or triggers.
These sessions can be offered early morning, in the evening or even mid-day as a break. They can be anywhere from 15 minutes to 60 minutes long. All of our courses are trauma sensitive:
We can offer:
Gentle Hatha Flow
Walking with mindfulness
Yogas built on a theme or idea (gratitude, healing, grounding, self-love….)

Objectives of the course:
-articulate the impact yoga has on post traumatic growth
-discuss the 8 limbs of yoga
-to define the elements of a trauma sensitive yoga class
-to offer some poses that can be done anywhere and serve as “on the spot coping”
-to connect the dots between yoga, meditation, mindfulness and being able to deliver trauma informed client services
