School for Recovery: Yoga
Taking care of our mind and body is crucial for recovery. Watch recordings of Recovery Cafe staff Annie as she leads trauma-informed yoga classes.
Thank you to Douwe Rienstra, MD for facilitating our first Volunteer Training of 2021 on the topic of “Medical Aspects of Recovery.”
Our next Volunteer Training will be Friday, 2/19 from 10am-11:30am on the topic of “Listening in a Time of Trauma” by Linda Little, PhD. She’s a psychologist who is interested in discussing what interferes with our ability to listen when we are stressed and how we can begin by listening to ourselves.
Dr. Little has vast experience in mental health crisis field response including supporting US DEA Field Office in Miami struck by Hurricane Andrew; supervising a team of Top Secret Secured Licensed Clinicans on site at the Oklahoma City Bombing; and working with the US Marshals’ Peer Support Team for 13 years.
If you haven’t already, please register here to receive the Zoom link prior to the training.
This training is free and open to the public, so if you’re already a Member or Volunteer, great! If you’re curious about Recovery Cafe, this is a good opportunity to check things out.
