Class & Workshop Descriptions

Trauma Recovery Yoga

Trauma Recovery Yoga (TRY) is an all-levels class, great for beginners and experienced yogis alike. The TRY Method intentionally weaves together different mind-body tools like meditation, affirmations, breath work visualization and movement, to stimulate the vagus nerve, work with neuroplasticity and bring balance back into the brain and body.

Kids Yoga Class

Created for kids but fun for all ages, this quicker paced mat sequence offers an opportunity for emotional connection and regulation. It is also the loudest yoga you will ever “try”! Participants are assigned affirmations and encouraged to call them out verbally through the practice. Closing with a humming technique, this class is based in science and psychology that also fosters vagal toning.

Ages 6-12 

Chair Yoga Class

For all levels of mobility, anyone can participate, and because of the accessibility of these postures, they can be practiced at the office, in the car, at home, etc. This class emphasizes more movement in the upper body, which helps relieve tension in the neck and shoulders. Some other benefits include vagal toning, stress relief, self-regulation, calming of the nervous system, better sleep, and elevated mood. 

Self-Regulation for Resilience

This active meditation is the foundation of all TRY practices, and is for people of all levels of experience. Sitting down and laying, participants will be guided through a simple meditation that helps regulate the mind and body. It's a quick and effective way to feel calm, centered and grounded in your body.

Demystifying Mental Health & Therapy

3 Workshops will include:

  • Three Main Bases for Better Mental Health

  • Myths About Psychology vs. Reality

  • Overview of Psychotherapy Sessions

Community Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional medicine practice involving the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to alleviate pain and promote overall health and well-being.

Stress Management

In this workshop, participants will  learn some practical tools to calm themselves, including trauma-informed breathing techniques and meditations. But that's not all! They'll also get access to these practices so they can practice on their own, after the festival.

Body Scan Meditation

In this brief meditation, participants will be guided on a journey throughout their body, strengthening their mind-body connection and feeling fully relaxed. Participants will have access to this meditation to practice after the festival as well!

 Say YES to your healing and join us!
