The Trauma-Conscious Yoga Method℠: Cultivating Self-Compassion and Inner Resilience
Limited Capacity seats available

Nityda has a unique way of creating a sacred space that feels safe for doing deep healing work within the asana practice. The Trauma-Conscious Yoga Method℠ integrates yin yoga and gentle vinyasa flow with somatic psychotherapy techniques, always from a heart-centered & trauma-aware space. In this practice Nityda will empower you to approach personal feeling states that you might otherwise reject, from a space of curiosity and compassion. This practice is intended to inspire new insights and evoke shifts in consciousness that support your healing and personal evolution, and connection to your highest Self. The asana portion of this practice is appropriate for all levels, including absolute beginners. We will integrate gentle vinyasa flow with longer yin-style holds and restorative postures with the use of supportive props. Nityda will guide you through internal dialogues and contemplative practices within the asana that are inspired by her training in Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems and EMDR therapy. This practice includes pranayama and meditation. Nityda is conscious of the common triggers for trauma survivors and so she always provides disclaimers and offers variations and differing options for those who may be triggered by breathwork and/or closing their eyes. Expect this class to feel like a combination of yoga and therapy and to be highly transformative.

RE-MIND: Yoga For A More Resilient Mind
Limited Capacity seats available

Over half of Americans report more stress in their lives than five years ago. Worse, this stress is correlated with increased mental health problems, and one in five American adults, about 42.5 million people, will suffer from depression and/or anxiety in the next year. The philosophies and practices of Yoga provide a time-honored approach for healing the mind, and creating lasting emotional well being and freedom. And current scientific research is finally supporting what yogis have known for centuries: Yoga improves mood, decreases stress, and reduces depression and anxiety. This yoga intensive, taught by a psychologist and yoga teacher, will teach how yoga is a powerful intervention for not only improving mental health but and also cultivating what is best within ourselves. This course is ideal for health professionals (physicians, psychologists, nurses, social workers, therapists) wanting to integrate yoga into their healing work, for yoga therapists, yoga teachers, and anyone wanting increased emotional well being. In this workshop we will: • Review the current research and hypothesized change mechanisms that support the clinical value of yoga techniques for mental health • Contrast yoga vs modern medicine’s view on mental health • Understand the 6 attributes of well-being we all contain, and the 3 limiting beliefs that block our connection with our highest self • Learn and practice the key poses, breath practices, mudras, and meditations that you can quickly implement to shift mood

The Trauma-Conscious Yoga Method℠: Inner Child Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

Nityda has a unique way of creating a sacred space that feels safe for doing deep healing work within the asana practice. The Trauma-Conscious Yoga Method℠ integrates yin yoga and gentle vinyasa flow with somatic psychotherapy techniques, always from a heart-centered & trauma-aware space. In this practice Nityda will create such a safe, sacred space to empower you to approach your chid within from a gentle and compassionate embodiment. This practice is critical in fostering self-compassion and moving through and past samskaras (faulty self-reflective beliefs and patterns that keep us stuck). This practice is intended to enable you to discharge from the body, mind and spirit, traumas that have remained trapped within. This practice will inspire new insights and evoke shifts in consciousness that support your healing and personal evolution, and connection to your highest Self. The asana portion of this practice is appropriate for all levels, including absolute beginners. We will integrate gentle vinyasa flow with longer yin-style holds and restorative postures with the use of supportive props. Nityda will guide you through internal dialogues and contemplative practices within the asana that are inspired by her training in Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family Systems and EMDR therapy. This practice includes pranayama and meditation. Nityda is conscious of the common triggers for trauma survivors and so she always provides disclaimers and offers variations and differing options for those who may be triggered by breathwork and/or closing their eyes.
