Retreat Center of Maryland is offering a special workshop on Sat., Oct. 27, on teaching trauma-sensitive yoga and meditation for yoga teachers, meditation teachers, and other health professionals who work with trauma survivors.
Yoga and meditation are known to help promote healing for individuals who have experienced trauma - whether from emotional or physical abuse, sexual assault, war-time experience, natural disasters, illness or other difficult experiences. Those who attend “Teaching Trauma-Sensitive Yoga and Meditation” will learn how to help their own students work with the mind, body and breath in ways that foster healing, resilience, self-awareness and self-compassion. Participants will learn that each class is uniquely geared to the needs of students, but it starts with a safe, supportive, respectful environment.
» »The Sensory-Enhanced Yoga Weekend Workshop has been rescheduled for June 1-2, 2019. Originally set for Sept. 15-16, the event was cancelled by request of out-of-state presenters and participants who did not want to risk traveling to Maryland in light of all of the early warnings about the impact of Hurricane Florence in this area. The RCM website Events page will contain registration forms shortly.
