Event Description

This workshop is for you if you are a first responder, counselor, nurse, doctor, or other professional coming in contact with the suffering of others.


As caregivers in any capacity - private or professional - we hold space for people in pain.

It's not our pain, but we make room for it. We carry it with them.

This often results in what has been called "vicarious trauma," "secondary trauma," "compassion fatigue," and "trauma exposure response."

Because our work often gives us an excuse not to focus on ourselves, we can lose touch with signs that we need a break to replenish or recenter ourselves.


Active movement done mindfully allows for stress-cycle completion, something most work and caregiving environments don't support.

Connecting with others facing similar challenges or feelings allows for meaningful and healthy co-regulation.

Blending a bottom-up approach to the brain through movement and breath with top-down mindful inquiry support whole-brain integration and allow for replenishing on a deep level.


Led by Monique Minahan, creator of The Grief Practice: Trauma-informed yoga that welcomes grief.
