FRIDAY 13 SEPTEMBER
6:00PM – 7:30PM
CBD YOGA w/ DEBBIE HOPKINS, RN
Enhancing yoga with CBD can help to cultivate a deeper awareness of embodiment. Both yoga and our ECS – the body’s naturally existing system of endocannabinoid receptors – work to maintain balance and homeostasis.
While CBD doesn’t get you “high” like its sister compound THC, it does provide several pleasing body-mind benefits that offer a complete sense of overall well-being. Photo-cannabinoid supplements work down to the cellular level. Organically sourced CBD with less than 0.3% THC boosts the immune system, can decrease pain and inflammation, reduce anxiety & depression, and improve mood.
In this workshop, we will experience the tandem benefits of both yoga and CBD, which work together to promote a longer-lasting sense of restored calm and well-being. We’ll be sampling organic, full spectrum CBD oil and salves during a brief discussion on the ECS (endocannabinoid system) and how to source the best CBD product. We’ll then enhance our experience of embodiment through a mixture of somatic and slow vinyasa movement, followed by yoga nidra for an even deeper state of relaxation.
You won’t be high but you’ll be floating.
$30 per person in advance or at the door
FRIDAY 20 SEPTEMBER to SUNDAY 22 SEPTEMBER
This 20-hour (16 hours in person; 4 hours self-study) foundational training will emphasize the core components of the practice and process of trauma-sensitive yoga, an evidence-based adjunctive treatment for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and how they relate to any anti-oppressive and trauma-informed work. Designed for anyone who is interested in deepening their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex trauma, this training will review the significant effects of trauma on the brain, body, and relationships (personal, professional and systemic), as well as the psychological and neuroscientific underpinnings of the TCTSY model. Participants may include, but are not limited to: yoga instructors, social workers, mental health clinicians, educators, activists, bodyworkers and healers, or other health care professionals.
SUNDAY 22 SEPTEMBER
