Yoga in Support of Trauma

The intention of this workshop is to offer an experience of how yoga can support the process of healing trauma. Yoga offers us ways to work with presence and we will discover how to manage and support distressing bodily and psychological sensations. In this workshop we will focus on steady, grounding breath flowing movement through the body.  Easing stiffness and chronic tension; to  remember again the joyfulness of ease through the body. 

Trauma, especially in cases of PTSD, can cause dysfunction in the perception of time, which is why I believe personally developing and returning to a safe sense of presence can be transformative in supporting and healing trauma in concert with other therapies.

Every person experiences trauma at some time in their lives. I would like to emphasise it is not necessary to ‘grade’ or compare your experience with trauma, if you feel this workshop might be helpful, you are welcome.

I also welcome friends, family and partners who are supporting someone through healing trauma. It is so easy and necessary at times, when supporting someone, to put their needs first. The effects of a loved one’s or friend’s experience with trauma can also be deeply challenging for those who support them.

Yoga in Support of Anxiety

Yoga in Support of Anxiety (2 hours, £16) 

This workshop is offered for anyone who experiences any level of difficulty with anxiety. Yoga and meditation are both tremendous resources to draw on when experiencing the challenging and powerful sensations that might be experienced at times of high anxiety and stress. We will be working with grounding poses to assist in establishing a safe harbour for the mind. Learning techniques for managing intense sensations and moving of awareness to experience other sensations in and outside of the body. We will also, inherently be working building trust between body and mind, healing the body-mind relationship; where the body and mind become allies each supporting the role of the other. This workshop is a perfect compliment to any other treatment and requires no prior experience with yoga or meditation.

Two Hour Yoga Workshop

  • Eldred Avenue Colchester, England, CO2 9AS United Kingdom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This is an opportunity to take time exploring yoga in a relaxed small group setting.  Just as with my Open Class it is open to complete beginners and experienced yogis alike.  We will spend two hours warming up, practising asana and concluding by slowly settling into a period of restful, alert stillness.  Students are encouraged to listen, respect and follow their own needs.  And in this manner, this is a way to learn how to support oneself uniting body and mind in a two-way flow of respect and trust.

Spaces at this venue are limited, please get in touch if you would like to attend and the places are taken as I will be running more of these workshops in the future.

Partner Yoga Workshop

'A wonderful, light hearted fun and creative afternoon practising partner yoga.  Finding new deeply relaxing ways to relate to each other through asana.'

Working jointly with a friend or partner, experience the mutually beneficial aspects of supporting each other in deep yoga asanas.  Encouraging flexibility and strength through gentle kind awareness.  Moving in partnership can allow for a wider range of movement than is available when practising alone.

We will be working with gentle movements to warm the body, practising bringing awareness into the body and maintaining it throughout.  The partner yoga will be fun and playful, there's no need to take this too seriously!  Finally we will wind down with some still, deep rest - practising gentle, soft awareness while the body rests deeply assimilating the benefits of the day's activities. 

The session will be hosted jointly by Dawn and myself.
