While we can't always change the world around us, or even what happens to us, what we can do is become more adaptable and resilient. The best way to manage an increasingly stressful world is to do practices that help you stay connected to an inner sense of agency and balance.
This workshop explores how to find a pathway back to wholeness and peace after difficult situations, by focusing on mind, body, and energetic levels. You will learn gentle ways to release stored trauma in the nervous system, subconscious mind, and energy body in order to feel grounded, vitalized, and hopeful.
Utilizing the physical practice of TRE (trauma release exercises, developed by Dr. Berceli), followed by Yoga Nidra (a guided meditation for tension release and spiritual expansion), this workshop will give you the opportunity to gently unwind built up tension on multiple levels of consciousness and energy.
Both TRE and Yoga Nidra activate the body's natural blueprint for releasing stuck energy in order to return to a state of bio-psycho-energetic homeostasis. You will leave the session feeling lighter, more grounded, peaceful, and open to the good life has to offer.
how does it work?
As humans we are designed with a biological and spiritual blueprint to help us process and release energy. The physical body is designed to be able to complete and let go of stressful experiences. Our consciousness has a natural pathway of reconnecting to a place of peace and nourishment.
The only problem for most of us is - no one told us we have this capacity so it has largely remained dormant. Instead of engaging our inner resources to process pain, we've been conditioned to live from the neck up, to avoid uncomfortable emotions at all costs, and to make sense of senseless situations by getting into thought loops, or ignoring them completely.
Talking through our experiences is important, especially in community. It is also important to work on deeper levels including the soma (body) and the subconscious, because this is where trauma impacts us most deeply. We must go beyond the level of thinking about it and into an experience that will help us process and integrate our pain.
The workshop will include teaching, a sharing circle, and multiple embodiment and release practices to effectively work with any trauma energy you may be carrying. You will experience new tools that you can integrate into your regular self care practice. These practices shift your energy and restore a sense of grounding and support.
Regain your balance
To reclaim a sense of wholeness after overwhelming events or loss, we must lovingly show up for ourselves and tend to our pain. We must have an experience that supports the rewiring of safety and agency into the body and the subconscious. It requires tending to the deeper beliefs, emotions, and sensations connected to stress, and rediscovering our way back to wholeness and belonging.
This experience could be right for you if...
you feel overwhelmed and fatigued
you feel isolated
you feel like you are constantly "holding on," whether that's mentally or through tension in the body
you feel empty or like a part of you is missing
you feel numb and disconnected
you struggle with anger or crying outbursts
you feel anxious and stressed
you know there are things from the past that are still affecting you
you feel an emotional pain your heart and don't know what to do about it
you are often taking care of other people's needs and don't make much time for yourself
you're not sure how to process everything that's going on in the world
What others have said about working with Katya
"I wanted an inclusive, holistic kind of therapy, in which there was an integration of mind, body, and spirit. This was the kind of transformational work I was seeking. I now have a deeper understanding of the different parts of myself and how they work together, and what has led them to develop in the ways they have. The self-trust and self-compassion I’ve gained are key anchors that guide me along my healing journey. "~ Heather
"Katya is an incredible teacher, an incredible guide, and I can't thank her enough for creating and holding the container for this group of amazing souls to connect and release what was holding them back. Immediately after our session I felt like I got my light back. I've had so many people who have not seen me for some time comment on my energy. This was a profoundly important and life-changing course." ~ Kristina

Still questioning if this workshop is for you?
If you're feeling called to this workshop, there is likely a reason. This is a gentle and safe support for those who are curious about alternative ways of managing stress and emotional pain, and who want to connect to others in a group experience. While this workshop is therapeutic in nature, it is not a replacement for therapy. It teaches skills and creates a safe container and community in which to explore these tools. While these tools are invaluable to trauma healing, one-on-one work is also essential. If you are not already, I recommend you supplement this group course with individual counseling (you can find options on psychologytoday.com or you can learn more about working with me 1:1).
This workshop will build on your personal work and support you in deepening your process. Therapists and other healing professionals have also benefited from learning more about trauma release techniques and dedicating time to their personal well-being.
All identities and orientations are welcome. This workshop is for anyone with a sincere interest in exploring their holistic well-being, and who wants to be an active participant in their healing.
