Class: Kundalini Yoga as a Foundation for Self Care
March 15, 2017
Lawrence Academy Winterim Program, Groton, MA
This is my sixth year of teaching this program to the students at Lawrence Academy. I have tailored my Self Care for Children and Teens Workshop to include a special focus on the benefits of Kundalini Yoga and its potency in counteracting the effects of stress and anxiety.
Workshop: Self Care for the Caregiver Workshop
I have teamed with Ayurveda expert Janelle Salzman to create this revolutionary workshop, Self Care for the Caregiver. Self-care is a necessity, not a luxury, especially for those who give so much to others. We will teach life-changing techniques on how to create a healthy, self-directed practice for nurturing your personal needs while supporting those around you.
This event is designed for professional and personal caregivers: nurses, hospice workers, parents, elder caregivers, and anyone else who spends time attending to others’ needs.
Equipment Requirements: The ideal setting will have enough floor space for everyone to perform yoga exercises, a kitchen area for cooking demonstrations, and a comfortable lounge or rest area for quiet reflection.
Average duration: This workshop can be tailored to fit the host’s needs, ranging from a 3-hour presentation to a 3-day weekend seminar.
Age range: Adults
Price: Price available upon request depending on the duration of the class and individual considerations such as exercise sessions and cooking demonstrations.
Schedule this workshop: Email Sarah at email@example.com with details about your organization, particularly who the participants will be, what you hope the participants will get out of it, and how the event will fit into your mission or program as a whole. Please also specify your preferred dates and the best way to get back in touch with you.
Workshop: Self Care for Children and Teens Workshop
Childhood isn’t as simple as it used to be. Today’s young people can easily grow stressed by the high expectations placed on their academic, athletic, and extracurricular performance, as well as the constant connectedness of the smartphone age.
Sarah Brassard’s Self Care for Children and Teens Workshop empowers young people to tap into their inner selves and develop protective, self-soothing skills. Sarah tailors the content and technical difficulty of each exercise to the age group and yoga expertise of the participants.
This seminar is popular with scout troops, preparatory schools, and after school programs. In individual cases at Sarah’s discretion, she will conduct the workshop free of charge.
Equipment Requirements: Space for all to sit comfortably. For workshops including Kundalini yoga, please provide yoga mats, blankets, and eye pillows for each participant.
Average duration: 2 hours
Age range: Elementary school, up
Price: Price available upon request depending on the length of the class, the inclusion of Kundalini yoga session, and other special considerations for your group.
Schedule this workshop: Email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your organization, particularly who the participants will be, what you hope the children will get out of it, and how the event will fit into your mission or program as a whole. Please also specify your preferred dates and the best way to get back in touch with you. If you believe you qualify for a free workshop, please indicate that in the email and explain why.
Praise for Sarah’s Classes and Workshops
“The Awakened Life Series is a place of trust and safety where the only correct answers are those from our hearts. It’s a place to come and honor the sacredness of everything around us and in us. The Awakened Life Series is a place to remember to laugh, cry and embrace it all!”
“I’m not sure I knew exactly what Awakened Life was going to be when we started, and every month continued to bring surprises. The ability to have a community of like-minded individuals clear their schedules and gather was very humbling. We are all very unique individuals, all on a journey but steadfast in supporting one another with kindness, understanding, and respect. Thank you for bringing this series to life!”
“Many times as I’ve driven home from Awakened Life, I’ve experienced agitation and decided to swear off the whole business. Then within a week I breakthrough to something I’ve been working towards. Somehow the time in circle stirs things up and supports me at the same time.”
“I felt so recharged and replenished after Transcend Trauma. I felt happy and really relaxed for the first time in weeks.”
“My experience with Transcend Trauma was very positive and life-changing. Sarah held the space with loving compassion, patience and great knowledge of their subject matter. Our close-knit group shared some beautiful and some sad life experiences that we all know will stay with us forever.”
“I absolutely loved the warm and encouraging atmosphere, the group process and support from the circle, and the information that was taught. I always felt that Sarah was available and approachable and always had our best interest at heart. Thank you for providing the time training, which was taught from the most sensitive and caring place for inner healing.”
“I feel so fortunate to have taken part in the wonderful Transcend Trauma program. I am very grateful for all the work you both did to make this experience so very helpful to me. The techniques you taught have been extremely useful. I think we were all transformed by all the material we learned and experienced.”
