Trauma & Healing
with Kundalini Yoga
Sunday July 21th, 2019 New York, New York
This 2 hour workshop guided by Tara Tonini will include practice and lecture. Tara will invite students to join in a trauma-informed approach to the powerful technology of kundalini yoga and meditation as taught by Yogi Bhajan. The lecture will introduce the most recent neuroscience and trauma theory research to explain how trauma impacts the brain, mind and body. We will explore the ways in which the kundalini yoga and meditation practice can strengthen the nervous system and cultivate resilience for post-traumatic growth.
All are welcome, no previous experience with kundalini yoga/meditation required. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a notebook.
Please keep in mind that learning and speaking about trauma can be triggering for some. Consider ways in which you can resource yourself before, during and after this workshop.

“Tara brings an element of care, gentleness, strength, grace & true presence to her teaching that I’ve never encountered in another teacher. She has an ability to hold space for her students in a way that allows questions, emotions, energy & movement to flow safely & freely. She has opened my eyes to deeper, more sensitive & nuanced elements of topics such as trauma, PTSD, recovery, relationships, health care, feminism & systemic racism. As deep as her knowledge is of yoga, all things prenatal, trauma, meditation, Reiki, healing arts & holistic modalities, her heart is even more expansive. To learn from Tara is truly one of the biggest blessings of my teaching career. The lessons I’ve learned from her and continue to learn from her, have helped me to grow not just as a teacher but as a learner, explorer, helper, healer and fellow human. I am so grateful for the gifts that she shares with the world and I look forward to attending more trainings/workshops with her in the future.”
