Brain, Mind & Body Awareness Series – Movement Module
April 20 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Center for Strength is hosting a 4-part program, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, & Body Awareness Series. We based this program on the modalities from the book, The Body Keeps the Score, by Bessel van der Kolk, M.D. The author shares a well-researched explanation of trauma, its causes, and potential therapeutic approaches. Our educational series will allow for additional discussions on ways to achieve healing from trauma. We will learn about brain science, evidence-based therapies, movement, and storytelling in a group setting. While it is helpful to have read “The Body Keeps the Score”, it is not required.
Yoga with Beth Horowitz.
In Body Keeps the Score it states, “In yoga, you focus your attention on your breathing and on your sensations moment to notice the connection between your emotions and your body- perhaps how anxiety about doing a pose actually throws you off balance. You begin to experiment with changing the way you feel. Will taking a deep breath relieve that tension in your shoulder? Will focusing on your exhalations produce a sense of calm?
Simply noticing what you feel fosters emotional regulation, and it helps you to stop trying to ignore what is going on inside you.”
