Trauma Informed Yoga Registration:


As part of the SAAM Support and Resource Fair, the Trauma-Informed Yoga session will feature Nadeeka Karunaratne, an educator, scholar, and trauma-informed yoga instructor.


Trauma-informed yoga instruction is a form of teaching yoga that embodies principles of trauma-informed care such as choice, empowerment, and consistency. As an instructor, I use invitational language, provide options for poses and engagement, create a physical environment that helps participants feel less vulnerable, and do not offer physical assists in postures. I consider the role of intersecting systems of oppression in my yoga facilitation, always sharing the origins of yoga, reading quotes from women of color authors, displaying visual images of diverse bodies, and playing music by artists of color. Whether in the community or on a college campus, the central goal of my yoga instruction is to empower trauma survivors and minoritized individuals to make choices about their bodies and find affirming outlets for healing.


Join RSVP for a supportive yoga session along with resources and other activites throughout the day.
