About this event

TRY stands for one of two things: Trauma Recovery Yoga because it'll help relieve your body of the physiological effects of trauma; and Total Resilience Yoga because you'll simultaneously recover/ build resilience. The practice is trauma-informed, removing any obvious triggers, and is built on a foundation of self-regulation. Participants usually feel a deep sense of calm and peace after the practice, and this is all science based, as we are intentionally soothing the nervous system.

The four main pillars of TRY are:

1. Presence: experiencing the present moment;

2. Empowerment: exercising choice;

3. Resilience: taking effective action;

4. Mindfulness: creating internal rhythms and positive affirmations.

Come as you are; just you and your mat. This practice is for all levels of mobility, and no experience is required.

About Me: My name is Brenda, and I've been teaching TRY for a couple years now. I began teaching in homeless shelters and to immigrant and refugees in Chicago, then in a refugee camp in Greece. I am now doing humanitarian work in Iraqi-Kurdistan and teaching the children's sequence at a local orphanage.

These classes are donation-based, pay what you can, and if you can't swing it right now, show up anyways! The self-regulation tools in this practice saved me, which I'll tell you more about in our time together. Part of my mission is sharing these tools with you!

***Upon registration, I will email you the ZOOM link.***

Feel free to email me with questions prior to class. See you on your mat!
