SPONSORED BY SUSTAINABLE WELLNESS  & THE LOVE AND LIGHT INSTITUTE

Throughout life’s circumstances, events and experiences can shock our nervous system and can cause us to lose our capacity to “feel” our own inner body and physical responses. Our day-to-day world can become numbing, dull, or at worst, painful.

Interoceptive yoga is a trauma informed yoga class that takes special considerations around creating a mindful space for participants including empowerment-based language, integration of choices and considerations of somatic complaints.

Interoception is a practice that helps us build awareness of internal physical sensations while increasing our capacity to respond better to stressful situations and emotions while enhancing our sensitivity, concentration, and focus.  It asks us to connect inward and to discover our inner landscape of reactions/tendencies/capacities/choices/responses. We begin to hone the skill of listening deeply. Throughout this process, we awaken non-judgmental awareness for what we encounter internally. We turn down mental chatter and support our nervous systems moving past old stories while acknowledging what is there now.

Through a series of mindful movements, participants are invited to notice sensation and make choices for themselves based on their experience in that moment.  Students will be invited to move at their own pace, and there will be no physical assists.

This ongoing, community class will be held at The Love and Light Institute beginning July 10th, and will continue each Monday at 6:30-7:30pm.  This is a LGBTQIA, POC, immigrant, & refugee friendly space. Children above the age of 8 are welcomed as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
