Trauma, Yoga and Your Brain Webinar

Wednesday, November 11th
4 pm PT / 7 pm ET for 90 min 
Guest Speaker: Heather Hagaman, M.A, C-IAYT, CSAC-T
Host: Kirti Khalsa, ARPF CEO

This webinar is part of ARPF's fundraising initiative. Your registration fee ensures we can continue our outreach and educational programs. Please consider giving $15 or more if you are able. We thank you for supporting our mission! 

In honor of Veteran's Day and Alzheimer's Awareness Month, join us for another informative webinar on brain health. If you are unable to attend, please register and we will send you the recording afterwards.

We know from research that even as we age, our brain still forms new neurons and that through neuroplasticity our brains can be rewired. 

Current studies looking at how healthy habits strengthen your brain health have shown that yoga decreases the stress response within the brain and boosts brain power. In the trauma context, that is called self-regulation.

In this 1.5 hour webinar, we will discuss how trauma manifests in the body, trauma-derived habits, and how to approach clients using specific trauma-yoga approaches. We will also experience simple and effective techniques that you can then apply to your practice and allow plenty of time for Q&A.

Whether this information is for yourself or for your students and clients, this webinar will result in better management of reactive emotions, thinking more clearly and developing greater focus.

Our speaker is Heather Hagaman, Yoga Therapist M.A, C-IAYT, CSAC-T.
