Yoga for Neurodivergent Folks with Candice Baldwin
October 25, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 11:45 amvarious
Open to people who identify as or experience aspects of being neurodivergent. In this class we will explore a gentle, body-based practice rooted in enquiry, breath and movement designed to support to the lived experience of neurodivergent people. The emphasis will be on creating a safe space that supports choice making and mindful awareness of the body, while maintaining ease and comfort. The tools of yoga used in this class can help develop self regulation, helping people who are autistic, ADD/HD and/or persons with mental and emotional challenge(s), develop the ability to identify and manage stressors which can lead to energy depletion and crisis while also helping the effects of trauma. Care will be made to make this a safe space for connection: building community through shared experiences, and building a sensory experience that supports connection with the body, all aspects are voluntary.
