Are you a teacher, therapist, or care giver? Do you feel overwhelmed, over-tired, hopeless or burnt-out? If so this workshop is for you. Join us as we explore methods for self-care to combat vicarious trauma and burn-out that many care givers experience. Taking care of yourself is vital to continue to work under challenging circumstances, in a challenging world. We will explore methods of yoga, therapeutic art making, ayurveda, and the importance of connection as a community.

This workshop will be geared toward teachers, therapists, social workers, and care givers, but all are welcome. No yoga or art experience necessary. Art supplies, yoga mats, chai and snack will be provided.

We appreciate the work you do to make this world a better place. Let us take care of you for an evening, and hopefully you can leave with some ideas for your own self-care.

Please sign up on line. Email with any questions.
