Yoga for the Recovery of Childhood Trauma

Yoga for the Recovery of Childhood Trauma
A Course Supporting Adults with Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD)
This Course is an evidence based eight week course utilizing Kundalini Yoga for people who have experienced stress or trauma in their younger years.
Research shows that the body stores trauma in the muscle tissue and the brain. The effects of stored trauma can include nightmares, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, insomnia, fear and compromised immune system.
Stored trauma can also lead to negative self defeating behavior patterns, substance abuse and addiction.
The classes are a combination of powerful physical and mental exercises, breath work and meditations that were specifically put together to target the areas of stored trauma and dis-regulation.
Tuesdays 7pm - 8.15pm
Starting October 27, 2020
$260 / Concession $220
Pre-registration is required
Limited Places
Payment Plans Available
SPECIAL PACKAGE
A TREATMENT PACKAGE SUPPORTING ADULTS WITH COMPLEX POST TRAUMATIC STRESS
We are now offering what I see as most beneficial on how to participate in the Yoga for Recovery Course.
Yoga and Psychotherapy
for the Recovery of Childhood Trauma
The effects of stored trauma can include nightmares, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, insomnia, fear and compromised immune system. Stored trauma can also lead to negative self defeating behaviour patterns, substance abuse and addiction.
Therefore, yoga is a wonderful adjunct to relational psychotherapy where the unhelpful conditioned patterns of the past can be explored and new ways of being in the world and in relationships can be identified and practiced.
Psychotherapy by appointment, Erina. Payment plans available.
Limited places.

National Sorry Day 2020

Observed annually on 26 May, National Sorry Day remembers and acknowledges the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who were forcibly removed from their families and communities, which we now know as ‘The Stolen Generations’.

National Sorry Day is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generations Survivors and reflect on how we can all play a part in the healing process for our people and nation. While this date carries great significance for the Stolen Generations and other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, it is also commemorated by Australians right around the country.

Neighbourhood Centre Week 2020 Loneliness - the solution is community

In 2020, the theme for Neighbourhood Centre Week is ‘Loneliness: the solution is community’.

Recent research has found 1 in 4 Australians are lonely, and that the ‘loneliness epidemic’ has significant social, health and economic impacts.
Neighbourhood centres by their very nature help combat loneliness by providing a space for people to meet and form meaningful connections through participation in community programs and projects.
Whilst things are different at the moment with Covid-19 we have enjoyed staying connected with our community through our Social Media channels, through phone calls and emails
In honour of Neighbourhood Centre Week we would love for you to share how Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre has helped you or someone you know in the community to connect or helped in any way that has added to their happiness OR share what have you done or had done for you to reduce loneliness in the community.
Leave a comment, share a photo or tag Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre on Facebook!
Remember we are still here for our community
