Yoga for Healing  •  Monday at 1:30PM

Yoga for healing is a trauma informed yoga class that focuses on creating a safe, sensitive space for all students. Practicing yoga in a safe space led by a trained and trauma informed yoga teacher can be beneficial to healing from trauma and other mental health issues. First, trauma informed yoga allows students to have choices about their body and how it moves during the practice. Next, it can increase how they understand and sense their body both internally and externally. Furthermore, it can allow them to notice the present moment and how it is different from the past. Finally, it can assist students in gaining mastery over emotional regulation. This approach acknowledges that any student coming to a class may have experienced trauma, so all classes are taught with specific trauma informed principles in mind. The class is led by a licensed mental health professional who has been trained in creating the necessary space for healing.

_______________________

Some potential benefits of trauma informed yoga include:

—uses invitational language 

— respects the physical space of students by not offering hands on assists 

—encourages students to begin to notice how things change and flow inside the body 

—increases self acceptance 

—calms an overactive nervous system through activating the parasympathetic nervous system

— helps with grounding and orienting to the present 

— provides skills for emotional regulation

—empowers students to reinhabit the body and befriend it again


Lindsey is a licensed mental health professional and yoga is a beautiful and important part of her self care and often recommends yoga to her clients. An avid runner, Lindsey has found yoga to be a nice balance to training and feels like her mat is a safe and grounding place to find a sense of calm. Bridging yoga and mental health seemed like a way to have the best of both worlds and after seeing how much the current research supports yoga as an adjunct to healing trauma, Lindsey began looking for a trauma informed yoga teacher training program. Lindsey received her 200 hour certification through K10 yoga school and became registered with Yoga Alliance in May of 2019. When Lindsey is not seeing clients, running, or practicing yoga, you can find her with her husband of 8 years, who is an ultra marathoner, and her two precious and wild children, Benton and Nora.

Gentle Yoga + Nidra @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Oct 16 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
This class is 50% gentle yoga, and 50% yoga nidra (or “yogic sleep”).
Gentle yoga will help increase your flexibility, shed stress, and prepare you for shavasana.
While in shavasana, we’ll practice yoga nidra, a guided meditation that takes you into a state of consciousness between sleeping and waking. Here you’ll have a window into yourself and the workings of your mind. It’s an opportunity to let go of long-held negative emotions and mental habits.

Talk about a great way to wind down on Wednesdays!

Alignment Yoga – Level 2 with Ron Felix @ Breezeway Yoga Studio
Oct 16 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm

This class is an upper level class so you have already earned your stripes by being in several series of an alignment style (like Iyengar ) yoga at Level 1. This class builds on that beginner’s level, refines it with more advanced poses and introduces you to a theme type practice. A theme could be a class focusing on back bends or forward bends etc. In addition you will be working on an inversion practice as your knowledge and experience as a beginner has taught you what not to do as compared to what you can do.

This class is taught in an 8-week series but drop-ins @ $15/class will be allowed with permission from the teacher.
