SURVIVING ASSAULT: Yoga Therapy as Early Intervention Following Assault or Trauma - A Strength-Focused Approach for Health and Holistic Practitioners with Yoga Experience. 
Diana Tokaji, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, PRYT, M.Sc.

 If you work with assault, trauma, acute anxiety, or PTSD, this series will support your visceral understanding of the physiology of assault, provide you with new physical practices, and guide you in holding space for another’s pain. Applying yoga therapy’s pancamayakosha model, or five sheaths – body, breath, mind, wisdom, bliss – you’ll experience how a strength-focused approach bridges body to highest wisdom, a process essential to assault survival and to finding one’s courageous path. Just as we might stabilize a painful broken limb prior to hospital care, the broken Being needs stabilization of body and mind when her world is uprooted. This is the primary step that we address: the acute stage that may occur immediately after trauma or repeatedly thereafter. How do we safely support a body that is traumatized? How can a client -- and how do we -- tap inherent wisdom at darkest hours? You will be guided to explore inspirational body and mind practices – resources that draw us toward a new midline, breeding health where trauma once held power.
