Yoga as Healing with the Counseling Center

The Counseling Center is excited to announce a new support service for survivors of trauma--Yoga as Healing. Emotions often act as a bridge between our bodies and minds. By practicing yoga, survivors can find a union between seemingly disconnected and challenging aspects of themselves, building the pieces into an integrated whole. Yoga's focus on self-acceptance provides survivors with tangible benefits that can become transformational and healing. This workshop encourages survivors to:

• Make time to focus on self-care. • Exercise choice to move the body in ways that feel comfortable. • Learn to establish connection to your life, trust others, and strengthen relationships. • Tap into inner strength and build skills and positive coping strategies for managing painful experiences. • Feel empowered through mindful movements and reconnection to the body.

8-week workshop on Tuesday evenings, 5:00 - 6:30pm, beginning in September.
