Further deepen your internal understanding of Attachment Theory, including your personal style in intimate relationship and when teaching or providing mental health support to others. Understanding our styles (our adaptations to the relational fields in which we live) is empowering. This perspective is free from shame or blame, both of which create fields of disempowerment. Truly getting this in our own skin, in our own hearts and minds, allows us to become profoundly more present to our students and clients. We are readily able to see their attachment networks yearning, resisting, or opening to possibility.

Explore and cultivate the strength of Internalized Secure Attachment and Co-Regulation through Yoga.

Neuroscientists, clinicians, and researchers are widely discussing the need for Self-Regulation, specifically for the populations in our community that struggle with behaviors that could cause harm to self and other. While their language consistently hails the power of teaching Self-Regulation to our clients/students, our brains are organized for Co-Regulation. This is a difficult lens shift to make in our Western medical and behavioral health models. However, Yoga has known this all along.

Our students/clients will come in to classes/sessions with their brains seeking Internalized Secure Attachment and Co-Regulation from Us.  Understanding the power of reciprocity in this is essential for the work we’re involved in. Essential for us as well as our students.

Understanding and working wisely with Transgenerational Trauma.  We will explore this specific to populations that become incarcerated and disempowered, and those that make up the majority of our citizens in the public health crisis.

Yoga Nidra from a Social Justice and Trauma-informed Perspective This session will be led by Sam Brown.
Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation practiced in a comfortable position. Using the koshas as a framework for the inward journey, Yoga Nidra has the potential to facilitate joy and vitality, to rejuvenate, and to access inner wisdom.
Yoga Nidra is subtle and also invites students to be vulnerable. Therefore it is important for teachers to be trauma-informed, privilege aware, and mindful of language choices so as to lead in such a way that is gentle, respectful, inclusive, and welcomes diverse experiences and realities. Further, Yoga Nidra is often approached as a solo inward journey. By adding an outward expression of the koshas, Yoga Nidra can inspire actions of social justice.
