scrambled eggs: healing after brain injury//balance the brain

  • 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.

Balance the Brain

The brain has two hemispheres: left and right. These two sides must coordinate their activities at the same time to supplement and complement each other. We'll work with subconscious memories to release and overcome anger, frustration, and self-destructive behaviours associated with head trauma. Expect an exploration in emotional body, response vs. reaction, and a discussion on outlets for these very human and valid emotions. 

Note: This is a three-part series - join for one or attend the final offering.

Sunday, July 14 @ 5-9pm - Build the Nervous System
