About the Course

This trauma-informed course will shine a light on our habitual but unconscious neurological patterning that manifests into how we breathe, our posturing, and our reactivity to circumstances. Such neurological patterning arises from our life’s experiences, predispositions, developmentally, as well as conditioning. Our tissues and organs provide the essential components of the patterns from which we weave our personal stories. These stories are then recorded and stored in the templates of our autonomic nervous system in the way we relate to self and others. Our ability to regulate the inflammatory and immune responses, maintain proper organ and metabolic functions, as well as to heal from diseases depend on the proper functioning of our autonomic nervous system.

In this course, we bring together movement, breathwork, and hands-on touch to hone our sensory awareness, and to cultivate a mindful and practical dialogue in healing from pain, injuries, anxiety & stress. We will also learn to assess, facilitate and regulate the different body-mind states using the movement of others through the physiological framework of the Polyvagal Theory (as developed by Dr Stephen Porges), as applied in therapeutic facilitation (Deb Dana).
