Join Exhale to Inhale Lead Trainer Julie Fernandez for a discussion with Martha Staeheli, Director of the New England Mental Health Technology Transfer Center's School Mental Health Initiative about the significance of trauma-informed yoga practice.

This past year has been pivotal for most of us with life changes and added pressures brought on by the pandemic and work-from-home situations. As educators, school mental health professionals, health care workers, parents, and caregivers our roles have not stayed singular through COVID-19 and we have all experienced a strain on our capacities to support those we serve.

Based on curriculum that was developed for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, Exhale to Inhale has been bringing trauma-informed yoga and education to a wider population for the past seven years. Acknowledging that we have all had lived experiences of trauma, we know that this modality can support us all to lead nourished lives.

Exhale to Inhale's dedicated teachers and trainers have been bringing this healing practice via classes and workshops, to individuals and teams at universities, hospitals, nonprofits and companies alike with the intention of sharing these tools widely so that they can be adapted to a variety of settings.

Registrants are encouraged to submit questions prior to this listening session via email to dasby@edimprovement.org.
