“I’ve got 99 problems and healing my nervous system solved 90 of them” ~ Christa Orecchio

Chronic stress and trauma can wreak havoc on the nervous system and have persistent and lifelong effects on our immune system, our mental health, and our ability to direct life intentionally for ourselves. The good news is that we can heal our nervous system, and restore resilience and well-being.

In this 25 hour series you will learn about:

Yourself as a modern human in an animal context Your 3-part brain and your hierarchy of stress responses Polyvagal theory and how it can help you befriend your nervous system Trauma and its effects on the body mind and spirit How trauma is sustained and perpetuated through modern civilization, cultural and colonial constructs Co-regulation, self-regulation, auto-regulation, and restoring resilience.

In this 25 hour series we will practice:

Breathing tools for shifting into a restorative and connected parasympathetic nervous system Ancestral movement tools for stimulating the Vagus nerve and creating a bio-feedback loop of well-being Orienting tools to create connect us with our own sense of power and agency Evidence-based mindfulness for accessing feelings and thoughts of comfort and safety in any moment Self-inquiry to know when stress triggers us into dysregulation and what to do to come back to self attunement

This workshop is for anyone wanting to reset their nervous system and restore balance through movement, breath, and mindfulness. These practices can create a renewed sense of self-trust and self-compassion.

For people with complex trauma and PTSD, this workshop is best done in conjunction with a licensed mental health specialist. Our scope of practice for this workshop is on understanding our stress responses and cultivating resilience, not specifically trauma on resolution.

Part two of this series will be specifically for yoga teachers, yoga therapists, social workers, medical professionals, and mental health specialists who want to use these tools to support clients and students with chronic stress and trauma. Part one is a prerequisite for part two.

This series will be offered live hybrid: both in-person and live virtually through Zoom.
