Trauma, yoga and the brain

In this workshop, participants will learn basic brain anatomy and function related to how trauma is experienced. We will also practice a trauma-informed yoga class, with a discussion.

No prior knowledge or yoga experience necessary--all are welcome. This class is not a therapy session, we will be discussing information that may be sensitive to some. If you have a mat, please bring it. You will be able to choose a mat or chair.

This class is free and open to the public, but space is limited so please RSVP through Eventbrite (linked directly in the ticket field).

This workshop is part of FRONT International and "A Color Removed."

Elaine Hullihen, E-RYT 200, began practicing in the early 2000's and completed the 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training with Brahmrishi Yoga in 2011. Since then she has continued her studies with Brahmrishi Yoga and is working towards the 300 hr Yoga Teacher Training certification. Elaine embraces the nurturing and contemplative nature of Brahmrishi Yoga and hopes to inspire students to find an exciting curiosity in the yogic path of self-discovery and wholeness. Since 2014 she has been studying trauma-informed yoga and has been working Fostering Hope, to introduce yoga to Children and teens in residential treatment settings. This study has informed all of her teachings in that it reminds her to remain gentle and settle into a place of listening before response. As she was discovering yoga, she was also earning a BFA in Sculpture from Kent State University, which she completed in 2007. This cultivated a foundation to view the yoga journey as a creative journey- an ever-evolving exploration of the self through body, breath, space and the oneness we all share.
