Kundalini Yoga & Meditation for PTSD, Anxiety & Depression
Thursdays 6pm — 7:15pm
This class combines simple postures, meditations, pranayama (breath exercises) and deep relaxation. The intention of this series is to teach self-regulation and self-resiliency to help release stored trauma, relieve anxiety and feel some peace. All levels are welcome.

In a regular Kundalini Yoga teachers we use command language such as «lead with your heart center» or «do breath of fire for 3 minutes». When teaching people with PTSD it is most effective to include such phrases as notice, feel, allow, when you are ready, consider directing your attention to gently guide the student back to their awareness as it continues to deepen. Choice and control are key issues for trauma survivors and restoring their sense of self-efficacy — the belief that what you do makes a difference — is paramount.

With trauma, often multiple symptoms occur at once and our effort is not to address them directly but to move to the underlying cause; dis-regulation of neural and endocrine systems. In this way many symptoms are addressed at once.
A big focus of the curriculum is reestablishing regulation of the brain and the glandular and autonomic Nervous System. In this way the student is able to increase their ability to self-regulate, build self-efficacy and restore Rhythmic Strength.
Key aspect of recovery is restoring vitality and Rhythmic Strength.

This Class is every thursday and if you want to do the complete 8 week series these dates are the next start dates.
