Yoga as Healing will explore reconnection to the self through mind, body, and spirit. This group will provide survivors of sexual violence a means of becoming reacquainted with their bodies, help to become grounded in the present moment, and allow exploration of the benefits of mindfulness as they tune in to breath and movement in guided practice and mediation.

Each class offers survivors a safe space to gain greater awareness around strength, stability, assertiveness, and mindfulness. Classes will have different themes, focus on various restorative postures, build strength in the core, explore positive affirmations, and will also be coupled with guided activities including de-briefing exercises, journaling, and art. Classes will allow survivors to re-connect with themselves and build community with their peers.
