4 week series in April | Saturday’s 1:30-2:30 pm | FREE
The compassion and empathy shown by healthcare professionals can prove physically and mentally costly. Every day, healthcare providers are asked to assist patients and families through some of life’s most stressful situations like traumatic accidents, chronic illness, medical errors and death. Research has begun to identify the impact this is having upon the people caring for these individuals. It is increasingly being recognized that healthcare staff are at risk of suffering post-traumatic reactions, compassion fatigue and burnout.
Yoga has shown to be an effective method for stress management and improving overall mental/emotional health. It can be a powerful complement to talk therapy and other self-care strategies. Trauma-informed yoga is taught in a very specific manner, emphasizing control over one’s own experience, honoring the limits of one’s own body, and inviting practitioners to explore their individual experience in every breath and every pose.
This 4 week series incorporates yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation and deep relaxation specifically for healthcare providers.
This course will be offered on Saturdays, 1:30-2:30 pm starting April 4th. Note: it is ok if you cannot attend every class; we know that healthcare providers have unique schedules. Do not let this prevent you from taking the series.
Lucia will be teaching the first two classes and Dawn will be teaching the last two classes. Capacity for 10 people. Sign up today or contact Dawn at email@example.com with questions.
Wednesday, April 29th | 7:30-8:45 pm | $20 or FREE for members (members-contact firstname.lastname@example.org )
Saturday, May 9th | 4-5:30 pm | $40 – 1 spot left

Vinyasa’s benefits are vast and with a deep dive into anatomy with a yoga therapist (Meghan Foley) we can learn how to guide classes that bring people towards their most aligned and centered state. After an anatomy day you will break down three main sections; inversions, binds and back bends with Jenn, Lucia, and Alicia respectively.
These portions are meant to give context around what poses/shapes are needed to strengthen and support the intended “peak pose”. You will learn not only learn how to enter a variety of poses for yourself but also how to guide others into a pose of this nature.
Finally, during this section we will read and discuss the Yoga Sutras so that our classes are informed from the original texts to our best ability.

Mantras are vehicles for transformation and deeper connection to that which is divine within us. Loosely translated, Manas means mind, tra means instrument. When working with mantras, we are utilizing an ancient tool to focus and refine the mind, calm and soothe its random fluctuations, linking to our breath, and tuning into our infinite wellspring of creativity, peace, and hope.
In this training we will explore these ancient symbolic sounds, words, and phrases. Using the art of listening, we will delve into multiple forms of mantra: Vedic, Tantric, Bha
With respect and gratitude to whence this practice came, growing up alongside Hatha Yoga and evolving to be shared with people of all castes, eventually traveling across oceans to grace other lands and hearts. We will discuss how to incorporate mantra into public and private classes, with reverence and attention to cultural sensitivity.
We will touch upon:
Our training will culminate in a Kirtan – a celebration of mantra, community, and devotion to that which makes our heart sing.
Mantra section: Deepen your yoga practice by learning about the sacred, subtle power of mudras: symbolic hand and body gestures. A branch of yoga often overlooked in the West, they are a powerful way to enrich your yoga practice and redirect prana, life force energy. There are hundreds of mudras, each with specific qualities and healing properties. They are a therapeutic tool used to bring awareness to different parts of the body, redirect the breath and enhance alignment in the asana practice, as well as meditation.
