As wellness practitioners and health care providers, it’s important that we take time to dismantle our own implicit bias, assumptions, and old programming in order to support all of our clients and all bodies, all the time, no matter what.

 Unless you have been on the receiving end of discriminatory practices, you may not be as aware of all of the ways in which the health and wellness industry perpetuates white supremacy, heterosexism, and cissexism.

Soul Strong Yoga is honored to host wellness educators Kelly Marshall and Kyra Thrilkill of Transforming Wellness for a facilitated discussion on how you can best support transgender and gender diverse clients in your practice.

This 2-day workshop is intended for bodyworkers, yoga teachers, dance instructors, somatics practitioners, health care providers, personal trainers, acupuncturists, dietitians, energy workers, and any other folx looking to expand their current education and create access and a safer space for our transgender and gender diverse community.

During this workshop, you will:

  • Learn client-centered practices that focus on how to offer services to transgender and gender diverse clients in a trauma-informed, safe, and affirming way

  • Begin to examine and deconstruct your own internal bias and concepts of gender, race, size, and embodiment

  • Explore trauma through the lens of Polyvagal Theory

  • Develop inclusive vocabulary and employ what you have learned in group discussion

By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Be able to engage in thoughtful discussions with your peers about gender, race, size, and embodiment and how these things intersect with the health and wellness industry

  • Have a thorough understanding of the basics of Polyvagal Theory

  • Be able to spot discriminatory practices and structures that are currently upheld in the health and wellness industry

  • Feel empowered to begin working with your colleagues and your community to dismantle discriminatory practices within your line of work

LPCs, LCSWs, psychotherapists, yoga therapists, and yoga teachers can earn 3 CE credits when they participate in this program.
