Yogic Strategies for Addressing Trauma
Sunday, March 1 @ 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Workshop with Nya Patrinos and Swami Sivasankariananda
Hear about core elements of trauma treatment, yoga philosophy, and effective healing approaches. • Learn how trauma theory and yoga philosophy interconnect. • Find out the healing foundations of yoga that are so easily hidden by our culture’s fixation on the external form. • Discover the role of the nervous system and how to cultivate balance through yoga.
