Yoga As Healing (YAH)
Yoga as Healing is a program that provides Trojans with a means of becoming reacquainted with their bodies, helps them become grounded in the present moment, and allows them to explore the benefits of mindfulness as they flow breath to movement in guided trauma-informed practice and meditation. This program is open to individuals who have experienced sexual-based violence and/or gender-based harm.
YAH is a weekly drop-in series. Classes will be held on Tuesdays. Contact Relationship & Sexual Violence Prevention and Services for the specific time and location.
Healing Arts is a trauma-informed program for individuals who have experienced power or gender-based violence. The group is not a trauma process group, but a group that uses the experience of creating art projects to heal from trauma. Participants will engage in various art projects that focus on positivity, resilience and relaxation.
Healing Arts is a weekly drop-in series. Classes will be held on Wednesdays. Contact Relationship & Sexual Violence Prevention and Services for the specific time and location.
