scrambled eggs: healing after brain injury//breathe easy

  • Lotus Yoga Centre 699 College Street Toronto, ON, M6G 1B9 Canada (map)

If you or someone you love has experienced head trauma, you’ve most likely come to learn that life with an ‘invisible injury’ is confusing and misunderstood. The process of becoming your post-injury self is varied: just like no two people are alike, no two brain injuries are alike.

Join Krista Schilter in this all-levels workshop to discuss the healing journey around cognitive, physical, and emotional side effects related to traumatic brain injury. We’ll explore how a mindfulness practice can help you meet yourself exactly where you’re at and how movement, meditation, and breathwork can transform your life post-TBI. We’ll use Kundalini Yoga techniques to balance the hemispheres of the brain, increase blood flow, manage symptoms, and increase memory, processing speed, and cognition. In each workshop expect a brief discussion, breath exercises, movement, relaxation with sound healing, mantra mediation, and optional homework practices and journaling.

Breathe Easy

Together we'll explore basic breath exercises to learn the relationship to breath as a healing tool and observe the differences in sensation. When you alter the breath you begin to oppose and release the habitual patterns of emotion and attention that are coded in the habits of the body and the mind. We'll move in a way that stimulates the vertebrae of the spine and increases circulation of the spinal fluid which is linked to memory. We'll close with beautiful meditation that combines sound, mantra, and mudra for a deeply transformative experience. 

Note: This is a three-part series - join for one or all three.
