Trauma Informed Yoga Training in Oak Park

We decided to host a trauma informed yoga training after noticing an interaction with a a dear student student triggered a trauma response. The interaction was seemingly harmless, but it caused stress for the student, so we decided to address this topic by hosting a training with Prison Yoga Chicago. Looking back, we can now see how other interactions in the past may have triggered trauma in our students without our knowledge. We believe that becoming more conscious in our actions and language can help us become more sensitive to others.

The yoga studio is a place where students should feel safe and be able to work on healing, connecting with themselves, and whatever other intention they may have. Students should always have choices in this environment - whether or not they want adjustments, whether they close their eyes or not, or even do a certain pose.

Our training is Saturday, October 12th from 1pm-4pm at Ahimsa Power Yoga at 451 South Blvd in Oak Park with Prison Yoga Chicago. $25 suggested donation.

Please keep an eye out for future trainings!
