We understand the great amount of time and energy you invest in your work with youth, as well as the need to take care of yourself to prevent high stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout in the field. Having a regular yoga and mindfulness practice encourages the ability to stay grounded and focused in your personal and professional life, allowing for more genuine engagement with others as well as effectiveness and sustainability in your work. We must “fill our cups” in order to meaningfully and effectively serve others, and the practices of yoga and mindfulness offer powerful ways to keep full. Our staff wellness programming includes weekly yoga/mindfulness classes, specifically designed for your site and the work that staff do, as well as other resources to encourage starting or maintaining a consistent and meaningful yoga/ mindfulness practice.
Trauma-sensitive yoga/ mindfulness classes for staff:
- Choose one (or more) 45-60min classes per week.
- Classes are delivered by a trained yoga instructor.
- Classes include postures/ movement (chair or mat-based), breath work, meditation and relaxation techniques for physical and mental grounding and strength, confidence, calm, and deep rest.
A set of five recorded audio breathing and meditation practices (one for each day of the week)
* We can also tailor a self-care program for your site, including half-day or full-day retreats.
