Woman Warrior: Yoga for Survivors

Sundays, September 16 to October 14th, 6:45 to 8:15 pm. Purchase Woman Warrior Class Card to register.

Woman Warrior is a 5-week series that provides a gentle yet powerful healing space for women who have experienced sexual trauma. This is a place for you feel safe and secure as you move forward in your healing journey.

Led by survivor and activist Halli Jastaran Faulkner, Woman Warrior uses the tools of movement, breath, and mantra to allow women to tap into their own healing power. In this workshop, you will connect with your own experiences of freedom, prosperity, and power.  Each week, we will use a specific kundalini yoga kriya and meditation to open latent healing powers in each chakra, or bodily energy center.

The Woman Warrior series welcomes all women who have experienced sexual trauma. Everyone who identifies as a woman is welcome – we find strength in coming together as a diverse group of survivors. No yoga/meditation experience is necessary – all that is necessary is an open heart.

Each week’s class will include yoga movement and meditation that starts with a gentle warmup before increasing your heart-rate with some deeper movement, and then allowing for rest, relaxation and group meditation. Some of this meditation will be silent, and some will use chanting or mantra. Halli will occasionally play live harmonium music with chanting. Each class builds on the previous week – workshop themes include grounding, centering, pleasure, prosperity, abundance, deservedness, and joy! We will use affirmation, partner exercises, and some optional group sharing to help us heal in community.

All communication and connections in this course will be held in strict confidentiality. It’s time to take back our lives. Together, we heal.

In 2014, Halli trained with Krishna Kaur in Los Angeles to become a certified kundalini yoga teacher.
