Intro to Restorative Yoga for Race Based Traumatic Stress Injury

  • Green Tree Yoga & Meditation 8227 South Western Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90047 United States (map)

Race based stress and trauma are so common in communities of color that we are not always aware of their negative impact on our health and well-being. Yet, race based traumatic stress injury is real and pervasive contributing to anxiety, and levels of distress that compromise overall health and a general sense of well-being. Restorative Yoga is a self-care tool that can help effectively manage the stresses and trauma that arise from the daily-lived experiences of persons of color.

In this workshop you will learn:

• What Race Based Traumatic Stress Injury is, and how it differs from PTSD

• How to identify areas of stress and trauma

• How to utilize Restorative Yoga as a self-care tool to effectively manage the stresses and traumas that arise from daily-lived experiences as a person of color

• How Restorative Yoga buffers the nervous system, increases resilience, and strengthens your psychological immune system.

This workshop is co-hosted by the Yoga and Body Image Coalition
