Available Workshops: 


Drawing on the latest research, we will explore how to use what we know about trauma (including vicarious trauma) and how yoga and mindfulness can reinforce and create resilience to enhance out work. Professional and personal examples will be used to see how opportunities to practice show up in even the most typical day. This two hour workshop will be part lecture, part experiential practice. 

  • Learn how trauma effects the brain. 
  • Build skills to recognize and alleviate overwhelm. 
  • Practice skills to build trauma resiliency. 


We stress the importance of self-care to our clients, but what about us? This workshop invites us to practice what we preach as we stretch our self-care practice. Using mindfulness, movement, and breathwork, we will explore the benefits and challenges to practicing self-care while doing time sensitive, stressful, and demanding work. This 2 hour workshop will be part discussion, part-experiential practice.

  • Discuss barriers to self-care.

  • Practice skills to support yourself and your clients.
