Trauma Informed Yoga

Trauma Informed Yoga

Series of 4 Free classes!

Thursdays, April 14, 21, 28 and May 5

7-8pm

Tara is a 500-hour registered yoga teacher and has extensively continued her education with an emphasis on trauma-informed yoga, Yoga Nidra, children’s yoga, mindfulness, restorative yoga, adaptive yoga therapeutics, anatomy and bodywork, meditation, Ayurveda, and somatic healing. Working with adults and youth, it has been a dream come true to share the healing and grounding practice of yoga, and to be a conduit for the practices and teachings that have had such a profound impact on her life.

Using invitational language, Tara’s trauma-informed yoga class is open to all levels, including those needing to modify and/or practice in a chair. A well-rounded mix of physical movement, breathing & mindfulness practices, each class concludes with Yoga Nidra, which is a deeply nourishing, healing, and relaxing guided meditation, in which you’re guided out of the fight or flight nervous system and into the relaxation response, where healing and regeneration naturally occur. All are welcome. No registration required.

Community Event: Que Será, Será: A Life’s Journey of Sexual Orientation & Gender Expression

Que Será, Será: A Life’s Journey of Sexual Orientation & Gender Expression 

Performed by Zelda

aka Judith Z. Miller

**** 4 Stars – “Truly an EIPIC Tale”

“The title of this gently confronting and evocative storytelling performance says it all. It is A Life’s Journey of Sexual Orientation and Gender Expression told by the charming and engaging Zelda (AKA Judith Z. Miller) who opens her heart and her life to the audience … imbuing her memories with passion, joy and melancholy …. Her stories are quirky and funny, distressing and sad, excitable and volatile and intermittently suicidal and tragic …  Que Será Será is truly an epic tale of a coming of age in one’s sexuality and gender identity.”

– Kate Herbert Theatre Reviews (Australia)

“Que Será Será (QSS) is an engaging multi-media show that highlights Zelda’s personal journey through seven decades of life. She delivers a passionate performance that generously shares raw experiences, thoughts and confessions. Via her intimate and powerful writing, Zelda expertly guides the audience so that we may all examine, accept, and appreciate our own life’s journey. Although focused on her own Queer journey, Zelda’s story illuminates the dark moments many of us struggle with alone with compassion, warmth and humor, transforming the highly personal into an entertaining and universally relatable experience. A performance of QSS would be a wonderful addition to any community or art organizations’ programming calendar.”
