A movement based approach to working with trauma

  • Yoga NoMa 1200 First St NE Washington, DC, 20002 United States (map)

This workshop will lead yoga teachers and other group facilitators through a somatically-informed discussion on how trauma lives in the body, and the ways in which to work with it safely and effectively. Beyond what asanas to teach and how, this approach takes neuroscience and somatic psychology into account, providing participants with tangible tools to use with clients. Following an interactive discussion, you will be guided through a trauma-informed movement practice and provided with the tools you need to do the same. Marissa used and developed this approach when working with survivors of sexual abuse and assault in Boulder, CO.
