Fierce Healing Yoga at The African American Museum
Happy Friday, Party People!
Center City Sips not your thing? Looking for a better way to spend your Wednesday evenings? Well then check out this exciting series of yoga events happening at the African American Museum!
This series is grounded in evidence-based research that demonstrates that yoga is effective in combating the results of complex trauma (Emerson, 2011, Kolk, 2014). While each class will blend three main themes identified as important for a trauma-sensitive yoga practice, each weekly session will be devoted to exploring a particular theme:
Theme 1| Experiencing the Present Moment: Awareness
Theme 2| Empowerment: Making Choices
Theme 3| Creating Rhythms: Synchronicity
Participants will leave the workshop with tools to combat the effects of traumatic stress. Tools will include:
• A 30-minute yoga and meditation practice
• Knowledge of meditation and a meditative practice
• Breathing techniques to combat anxiety and induce calm
• Greater appreciation for their bodies
• Improved or renewed sense of empowerment
Classes are led by Danielle Jernigan, MS RYT, who began practicing yoga in 1999, and who has since attended specialized training in teaching yoga to kids, yin yoga, and trauma sensitive yoga practices. Danielle founded Jade Vine Yoga, an organization committed to creating community-based programs in cultural and alternative spaces to help others heal and reclaim their voices.
Each class is $7 per session. You can RSVP for the events by clicking here.
