Did you know that COVID-Brain is a real thing? “The combination of impaired analytical thinking and heightened external sensitivity creates what can be called “Covid-19 brain” – a fragile, frazzled state that keeps our thoughts simultaneously on edge and unfocused.” (INSEAD Knowledge article: Battling ‘Covid-19 Brain’)
Join us for this fascinating workshop to learn more about the Neuroscience behind it and how Yoga can help.
The goal of a trauma aware yoga practice is to feel empowered, build resiliency and establish greater self-regulation. Anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, relationship stress, and health issues are often the result of unresolved trauma. The series will cover:
- Integration of choices
- Empowered and inclusive language
- Art of assisting and holding safe space
- Invitation of postures
- Breath and trauma
- Sensitivity to Triggers (Trauma Informed Mindfulness)
Open to yoga students, yoga teachers, or anyone who works in the field of helping. Counts as 9 contact hours for Yoga Alliance Continuing Ed.
Please bring a sack lunch, snacks, and water. Make sure to bring anything you need for outdoor comfort, including sunscreen, insect repellent, etc.

Often instructors encourage us to grab a block, bolster, blanket, or strap for our yoga practice. Many of us have wondered what to do with them, which ones to use, and when to use them. In this workshop, we will creatively explore how to use props in a playful, safe, practical, and insightful way to guide you through your yoga practice.
Designed to increase your understanding of the purpose of using props and how to use props effectively for your own practice, or when guiding your yoga students. This workshop is created for beginner to advanced practitioners and we encourage you to have a few postures in mind that you may want to explore using a prop to assist you.
Available as 2 contact hours Yoga Alliance Continuing Ed for Yoga Teachers. Please notify Krista in advance if you’ll be attending for CEC.
