Trauma-Informed Yoga for Survivors of Sexual Assault: How to Facilitate a Compassionate Space for Healing with Zahabiyah Yamasaki

Memories of sexually violent experiences can be intrusive, which can create challenges for survivors. These memories can also make it difficult for survivors who are looking to establish connection in their lives and learn how to trust again.

The entire experience of practicing yoga can help survivors find union between seemingly disconnected and challenging aspects of the self, allowing participants to slowly build the pieces into an integrated whole.

This workshop incorporating lecture, a short practice and Q&A, will provide yoga teachers, mental health professionals, educators, administrators, activists, medical professionals, doulas, coaches, healers, or anyone who is interested in teaching from a trauma-informed lens with all of the necessary tools to create a safe trauma-informed, and culturally affirming environment for survivors of sexual violence.

Recommended props: a notebook, mat/chair, any props to assist you feel comfortable in a short guided trauma-informed asana practice
