“Self Care In Action: A Trauma Informed Yoga Approach to Care, Part I”

In the United States, nearly 70 percent of the population have experienced some form of trauma. This workshop will discuss the importance of self-care, especially in the wake of traumatic events such as violence, an accident, loss of a loved one, emotional abuse, chronic poverty, racism, etc. Ms. Bailey will lead an interactive demonstration on how to use yoga to address social, environmental, emotional, and physical trauma. Participants will learn basic breathing techniques and poses for physical and emotional health. In addition, each participant will be provided with tools to begin designing their own personal self-care plan.
