Description:

When the term mindfulness is used it is most often associated with stillness, but it is so
much more. Mindfulness is about being present in the moment and being consciously
aware of sensations in your body and your surroundings. In this yoga class you will
explore mindfulness through exploring yoga postures and sequences, as you connect
breath with movement. During the class, the instructor will invite you to bring specific
attention to breath and body sensations. This will encourage a shift in focus from
thoughts to a felt sense.

No yoga experience needed.

Teacher: Sharon Taporco

Description:

This is a 60 minute yoga class, focusing on breathing techniques and yoga postures
that work with the nervous system in a way that increases self-regulation. We work to
stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to promote rest in the body. Which then
decreases stress in both the body and mind. This class is taught through the
framework of trauma informed yoga. This means that we will focus on creating a safe
space for each individual to explore a mind/body connection.

No previous yoga experience required.

isn’t true. Everyone and every body can do yoga! And this class will show you how. You will
learn how to use props including chairs, bolsters, blocks, and blankets to best support you in
your yoga practice. This class will work towards increasing mobility in the body and promote
relaxation. The majority of this class will be done from a chair and is perfect for those who may
find it difficult to sit or lay on the floor. We hope you join us and explore the possibilities that

Dance Movement Therapy Workshop

Dance Movement Therapy Workshop

Time: Saturday September 25th from 9-10:30am

Cost: $30 per person

Location: Breathing Through Counseling & Wellness Services- 1604 Ford Ave. Suite 3, Modesto

Sign up at: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/breathing-through-counseling-amp-wellness-services-31094686759

Description:

When providing care and support for others, it is often unavoidable to continue carrying their
burdens and worries even when the appointment is over. In care providers, vicarious or
secondary trauma is common and can lead to burn out quickly. Over the past year and a half
our work has been needed more than ever, so we must take time to take care of ourselves.
Dance/movement therapy (DMT) offers the space to explore what our bodies have been holding
and allows movement through those burdens we have been holding. A lack of self or bodily
awareness can lead to increased vulnerability to vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue. DMT
offers the care-provider an opportunity to attune and engage with the self and others who can
empathize and hold space. Join us for a 90-minute workshop, exploring how we hold vicarious
trauma in our bodies and giving participants a safe place for release. The workshop will also
allow time for reflection and processing. *Ages 18+

No previous dance experience needed.

Facilitator: Lauren Zampieri, APCC, R-DMT
