Yoga & Mindfulness for dealing with Stress and Trauma

June 25th from 10am till 1pm

$65 includes handouts and yummy assortments of tea and cake
An essential workshop for those that are working with Trauma sensitive clients/students such as frontline workers, yoga and or movement/manual therapist workers.

During the 3 hour workshop, we will explore the science behind the body’s stress response and develop a yoga practice to cope with symptoms of anxiety, stress and trauma.

This session will include a brief overview of neuroplasticity and the brain’s capacity to change in response to intrinsic and extrinsic stimuli. It will include information on brain’s immediate response to stress and the lasting effects it can have on the body; and therefore the importance of self-care.

Following this, we will discuss the benefits of yoga to improve cognitive functioning, citing a number of published neuro-scientific studies which acknowledge the ways in which yoga and movement-based therapies support healing.

Together, we will move into an experiential component; a trauma-sensitive yoga and mindfulness practice. These modified postures and breathing techniques have been adapted specifically for individuals with a complex trauma history, and for others managing stress in their everyday lives.

You will also be provided with tools to effectively develop your own self-practice to cope with symptoms of anxiety, stress and trauma. *Beginner levels welcome.

The Sanctuary Adelaide Festival – Tribal Beats ‘

Sunday 30th JULY 2017.
Robinson Heritage Warehouse
15 Halifax Street, Adelaide


After a sold out show in March this year, The Sanctuary Festival invites you to another epic evening full of fire, tribal beats, Qi Qong, Vinyasa Flow yoga and all round good time vibes! This is an event not to forget, taking place in a HUGE heritage warehouse, transformed into a cosy fire lit space of tribal inspiration and African soul delights.

Your evening will begin with the primal beats of the digeridoo by James Byrne followed by two yoga sessions to get your internal fire going! We will then introduce you to wonderful tunes of Abbey Howlett, followed by our headlineing 8 piece African soul band, The Dashumi Ensemble. 

Whilst you join the tribe with music, movement and good vibrations, be sure to take some time out in the chill out lounge to sip on organic wine, beer or cider. You can also check out all the surrounding eclectic stalls and food trucks, get a Henna tattoo inked on, or relax into a deep remedial massage whilst soaking up the beats. Enjoy yourself as the music filled, fire lit warehouse transforms into your Sanctuary.
