Teacher

Victoria Frye

Cost

$85 or contact us at 291-4444 to apply for a scholarship

In this 6-week series class, students will be invited to explore gentle yoga movements in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. How might our Trauma Sensitive class be different than other classes on our schedule? The teacher has experience and training in trauma informed yoga practices. The classes are created to be predictable. They will start and end the same way every week, and you will know what''s coming from the very beginning. This is a women only class and, as a rule, there will be no physical hands-on adjustments. Attention will be paid to the types of props used and of the potential for feelings of vulnerability in certain postures. The teacher will continually offer options, allowing you to practice making empowered choices, opting in or out of any portion of the class at any time.

Because strong emotions may arise and be released during and after a somatic practice like yoga, we suggest students also work with a psychologist, psychiatrist, or other mental health professional while on their healing journey.

“Yoga allows survivors to regain a sense of comfort and ease within their own shape, to process nonverbally feelings that transcend language, and to experientially cultivate gratitude towards the body, which serve as a reminder of one’s resilience (Boeder, 2012).”

Class fee is refundable if canceled 7 or more days prior to start of class. Class fee, less a $15 administration fee, is refundable if canceled 4-6 days prior to the start of class.

What would your life be like if you could sit with your own pain? What if you could simply listen from a deep place and love yourself exactly where you are? Allowing death of a loved one, marriage, job, home or health to wash through you? What would your own life be like if you could sit and listen to another’s story of loss without jumping into action? These are very difficult things to learn, however, through simple movement and deep rest, it’s possible to integrate these experiences into our being. We know from our death retreat experiences that working through grief in community is healing on all levels of our being. In this four-week series you will experience a layering of relaxation techniques from Urban Zen Integrative Therapy to deeply calm your nervous system. You’ll cultivate skills of deeper listening to yourself and others. The series will also include creativity exercises that can bring a sense of richness and maybe even joy into your experience of grief.

Class fee is refundable if canceled 7 or more days prior to start of class. Class fee, less a $15 administration fee, is refundable if canceled 4-6 days prior to the start of class.

In this series, we will focus on yoga poses, transitions and movement to balance the hips with flexibility and strength! It is important to both open tight areas of the hips and strengthen weaker areas to create and maintain balance in the hip joint. Opening the hips can create a sense of ease and freedom in our body. Strengthening the hips builds the balance we need to practice and move through life safely. We will practice some poses that increase mobility which increases your range in motion (think pigeon pose). And, we will practice some poses that increase strength which increases stability (think Warrior 3). Add those together, plus Chatturanga (and a few other poses! ), and we’ll be ready to practice challenging poses like Eka Pada Galavasana- Flying Pigeon Pose! Expect to practice a variety of poses, and some challenging transitions!

Class fee is refundable if canceled 7 or more days prior to start of class. Class fee, less a $15 administration fee, is refundable if canceled 4-6 days prior to the start of class.
