Our theme this year is an investigation into the neurophysiological mechanisms which support effective yoga and meditation practices. The goals of this two-day conference are to present current scientific evidence in a rigorous and accessible manner and to increase interactions between yogis and scientists. In addition to lectures, participants will be lead in yoga and mindfulness practices relevant to the theories and studies presented. A panel and an evening social event will provide opportunities to interact with the scientists who are presenting.

Dr. Gail Parker will be presenting on "Restorative Yoga for Healing Ethnic and Race Based Stress and Trauma", and she will facilitate a restorative yoga practice.

In this immersive experience practitioners will learn how to use Restorative Yoga and meditation as a tool of self-care and to manage the stresses and trauma that arise from daily-lived experiences as a person of color. We will engage in yoga practices that provide an opportunity to step away from repeated experiences of race based wounding. We will leave with an inner toolkit that will support us in developing even more resiliency and coping strategies off the mat.

Presented by Dr. Gail Parker

Atlanta, GA

Race based stress and trauma have become so common in communities of color that we are not always aware of their negative impact on our health and well-being. In this workshop you will learn what Race Based Traumatic Stress Injury is, and how it differs from PTSD. You will also learn to identify areas of stress and trauma, and how to utilize and teach Restorative Yoga as a self-care tool to effectively manage the stresses and traumas that arise from daily-lived experiences as a person of color. Learn how Restorative Yoga buffers the nervous system, increases resilience, and strengthens your psychological immune system. Participants will receive a certificate of completion that counts toward Yoga Alliance continuing education credits.
