Since GVES is not currently able to offer our trauma informed yoga classes we will be offering virtual meditation sessions instead, Take Back Your Breath Meditation.
Sessions will be offered Tuesday, April 14th and Tuesday, April 28th from 5-6 pm EST. The meditation will be guided by our community partner and yoga instructor, Liz Jordon.
It is open to any Lehigh student, faculty, or staff member, as well as any friends and family they are sheltering in place with.
Trauma-informed yoga is a research proven way to help survivors of sexual trauma deal with their trauma symptoms. It is a combination of focused breathing and mindfulness skills, as well as healing poses. Trauma-informed yoga is an opportunity to learn how to work with your own discomforts. It is a judgement free zone where every participant is able to go at their own pace and skill level. The practice is not meant to be a high cardio or strength testing workout, it focuses on grounding, breathing, and mindfulness with comfortable, stretching poses.
Our instructor, Liz Jordon, is certified in trauma-informed practice. The instructor does not leave her own mat and will never touch participants to adjust their pose throughout the practice. It is a space where your body is entirely yours.
Students, faculty, and staff of all gender identities at all levels of healing after a trauma are welcome and can benefit from trauma-informed yoga.Sign Up!
