Using Yoga To Heal Trauma

w/ Alexis Marbach
Saturday, Jan. 28th @ 1:30 – 4pm
Early registration $35 / $45 after Jan. 23rd
Minimum of 8 must pre-register by Jan. 23rd in order for the workshop to run

This workshop focuses on embodied healing, designed to guide students through a process of listening in, becoming reacquainted with their bodies in order to find safety, stability, and resilience within. Embodied healing (the work of linking movement and breath focused on healing specific emotional challenges and from past traumas) provides comfort, calm, and clarity when language fails. When we are feeling something that we can’t describe through words, our yoga practice can help us to access our hurt and vulnerable spaces, and send signals through our nervous system help our bodies and minds know that we are safe and supported. Through carefully sequenced postures and breath sequences, students will be empowered to find safety and stability within their physical and emotional bodies. Students will have the opportunity to participate in guided journaling exercises or find grounding in a restorative pose at the start and end of the practice.

This class is appropriate for all levels of experience, from beginner to advanced.

Alexis Marbach

Alexis believes that yoga is an opportunity to turn your inner volume up and the external noise. Yoga is a tool that helps us discern who we are, and make decisions that are in service to our emotional, physical, and spiritual nourishment. She believes that engaging in a yoga practice is a radical act of self-care and a chance to become embodied, empowered, and more firmly grounded in who we are (especially in a world that is constantly in flux). After practicing for over 10 years and teaching for more than 4, Alexis has come to understand her practice as a safe place to explore internally and externally. She teaches because she believes that everyone has the right to engage in this process of cultivating their deep internal wisdom. Alexis completed her 200-hour teacher training with YogaWorks in Northern California, and is currently working on her 300-hour teacher training at Down Under School of Yoga in Brookline, Ma. She is forever indebted to her teachers and mentors Lakshmi Norwood, Nikki Estrada, Michelle Marlahan, Molly Boeder Harris, Zabie Yamasaki, Cailtin Lainer, Tami Hackbarth, and Natasha Rizopolous.  (www.alexismarbachyoga.com)
