scrambled eggs: healing after brain injury//build the nervous system

  • 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.

Build the Nervous System

Nadi cleansing is a classical technique used to purify and create a powerful balance of grounding and rising energy while encouraging the flow of kundalini energy into the central channel of the spine. This offers an experience where we can observe emotions with a neutral mind and become an expert witness of the body. We'll discuss the importance of deep relaxation in restoring and resetting the nervous system to support healing and work to adjust the nervous system to bring both the parasympathetic and sympathetic sides into balance so the intelligence of the body can heal itself.

This workshop is open to survivors, caregivers, and community. If you’re keen on supporting someone with a TBI this is an opportunity to understand through compassion, to be patient, positive, and encouraging.
