The following video is meant to serve as a resource for grounding, centering and self-care.
This all-levels, trauma-informed yoga practice creates a safe space to breathe, relax and decompress while participating at one’s comfort level. The practice intends to help participants feel more centered and grounded, calm and present. The session is not medical or psychotherapeutic treatment. Participants are asked to proceed carefully through the exercises, which will be offered at a tempered pace to facilitate the participant’s attention and care for themselves. Participants may want to have a private space where they feel safe and will not be interrupted.
