We are the providers and helping professionals, we know what is needed for self-care and tell our clients, but we often don’t feel we have the time or space to do it ourselves.

Join NASW member Caitlin Brown, LMSW, E-RYT 200, for an exciting series of self-nurturing yoga practices to prevent burnout, compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. Learn specific practices such as postures, meditation, breathwork, sound healing, self-compassion and mindfulness, that can help bolster resilience and compassion satisfaction in our work as social workers. This supportive practice is perfect for those brand new to yoga and is also great for those who want to deepen their existing yoga practice.

$10 for NASW members, $15 for future members. These sessions are limited to 30 attendees.

It is on the corner of Warren & the Lodge Service Drive. There is FREE parking along the service drive. There is metered parking on Warren and then there is a large parking lot in front of the building. The lot is $8.50 for visitors.


Please wear athletic clothing and bring a yoga mat. Please note the room is warm. A few extra yoga mats will be provided.
