Trauma Troupe-Somatic Intervention Yoga
Time & Location
About the Event
This is a small processing group for trauma therapists, body workers, and other trauma workers in the Pittsburgh area that meets regularly. The group will be capped at 25 participants. If you plan to attend, please register. Bring your vicarious woes and we'll provide the compassion and virtual tissues.
Peace of Time has been adapting and navigating the virtual world for the last several months, which means, Trauma Troupe is back on, but virtual!
The October 2021 Trauma Troupe will offer a virtual somatic activity with our trauma-informed yoga instructor with room for processing following. Suggestions for the activity: During a short session of trauma informed yoga, be prepared by wearing comfortable clothing. You may want to utilize props, like blankets, pillows, blocks, bolsters, a yoga mat, etc. to make you feel safe and comfortable during the session. We will be experiencing grounding through movement and breathing techniques to regulate the nervous system. This can be experienced anywhere, but preferably a quiet space with low dim lighting.
Because of the nature of this event, we must include our terms and conditions below.
