YOGA FOR Direct care professionals
Classes and strategies to prevent and heal the individual and organizational consequences of vicarious trauma and professional burnout
Direct care professionals witness and absorb the traumas of the individuals they serve and support.
Without proper care and awareness, eventually those professionals become traumatized themselves and/or disconnect as a way of self-preservation.
Yoga organically and holistically allows for safe self-reflection, triggers the activation of the para-sympathetic nervous system (respond, not react) and promotes the cultivation of the energy and compassion needed to safely support the most vulnerable and marginalized populations.
