Do you feel constantly wiped out after your work day as a service professional (teacher, nurse, social worker, massage therapist, etc...)? Are you struggling with caring for an adult family member, all while trying to raise a family of your own? Are you an activist in the community who feels hope slipping away sometimes when change seems so slow? If so, this class is for you! Unfortunately, we're doing ourselves and the ones we love a huge disservice when we neglect our own self care. We end up sick, depressed, anxious, and sometimes incapacitated to the point we can no longer care give. Enjoy an hour of tending to your soul, so you can take better care of those in your charge. Learn easy tips to incorporate these simple yoga practices into your daily life. You deserve this!

Level - All levels welcome!

Instructor Bio: I've been a care giver for as long as I can remember. I knew by the age of 12 I wanted to be a therapist, and for over 16 years, I've served some of the most at-risk (AND STRONG) families in our community who have experienced and survived unimaginable traumas. In my time of greatest service, I felt hope and joy slipping away because of all the heartache I'd seen. I had no one to let me know what I was experiencing was normal, or that there were very simple things I could do to care for myself. Fortunately, after finding some mentors who shared this wisdom with me, I found a personal yoga practice and became a yoga teacher myself. Today I teach yoga; provide therapy, coaching, and supervision to social service professionals; travel around the country training about the phenomenon of Vicarious Traumatization (that sense of eroded hope we get when caring for others and their pain); and train others in Reiki. Jodie Tingle-Willis is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, E-RYT-200, and Reiki Master.
