Yoga For Trauma | Healing through the body
Time & Location
About The Event
Welcoming any and all expressions of gender. Come ready to HEAL, grow in resiliency as you develop depth in the way you relate to your body & mind through yoga, plant medicine and modern science. The objective of Jaia Devi's yoga for trauma & mental health sessions is not to access emotions or dredge up trauma memories, but rather to help participants heighten their body awareness—to notice what is happening inside their bodies—and thereby learn to release tension, reduce and control fear and arousal, and tolerate sensation. These sessions are suitable for individuals suffering from chronic trauma, PTSD, other trauma-related symptoms such as anxiety and depression. In these sessions, Jaia Devi who specializes in trauma healing and therapeutic movement will help you address feelings of being dissociated from yourself. The purpose is for you to heal through your body, as you make peace with yourinternal process and allow your body to express itself in an empowering manner.
Jaia Devi will guide you through a gentle 45 minute yoga sequence that will allow you to connect with the deeper layers of the healing potential residing in our bodies. The main objectives are to restore a sense of empowerment and control over your physical vehicle. The yoga sequence will be followed with a 30 minute guided Yoga Nidra/ Body Sensing session to foster space for further transformation in your physical, emotional and subtle body, you will receive a non-alcoholic herbal infusion made from flowers that were handpicked at the height of their bloom. As you attune to the healing power of plants, you will then be guided into a Body Sensing experience as you explore a journey of self-understanding. This will be followed with an optional 30 minute integration/ closing circle. This closing circle is OPTIONAL and is offered in response to an increased interest from certain participants to connect in community as we grow in understanding by sharing personal insights. Participants do not have to talk to other participants, making this class more comfortable for individuals who find it difficult to be in groups.
No experience is necessary to attend this event as Jaia Devi strives to make the classes accessible to everybody regardless of physical ability. This is a gender neutral, open to all class.
