About the event

Trauma tells us lies. Lies like not good enough, damaged, broken.

The good news is our minds and bodies are amazing and with specific tools we can learn to heal ourselves from the inside out.

We can choose to "steer our story" in a new direction.

Join us for a day of diving into reclaiming your story and stepping into your power.

Through trauma-informed yoga,

somatic body work +

guided reflections, journaling, & small group discussions

Kat and Kristin serve as your facilitators to open the door to a new narrative: a release and a reclaim!

The first step is Awareness of your story of origin + the lies trauma tells.

The second step is Acknowledgement: the more we suppress, the more the story comes out sideways.

The third step is gentle Action: “what can my mind and my body do differently today in this moment?”

We look forward to facilitating for you and learning with you as we all choose courage to step through the door, into the driver's seat and take the wheel on our journey.

Please note: this is a trauma-informed retreat. Every activity is an invitation to join and you choose your own level of participation,♥

Lunch provided.

“Kristin, the workshop has been profoundly powerful for me. I have been acutely noticing my negative self-talk and taking the time to quiet, reflect and reframe how I see myself and my actions. I am also noticing the labels I use for myself and others and how the stories attached to those labels disempower me from being my best. As a survivor, I have a lot to unpack but feel inspired to at least start looking at it so I can recognize what is fact and what is story. Thank you.” ~ J.E.

Kristin's Bio: Kristin just completed part one of her Survivors Tour across the US and to Calgary! She is an award-winning Cause-Focused Storyteller, Finalist in TED Talks Talent Search, published author of three books including A Bridge of Stories: Risking it all to connect classrooms and cultures in Belize, Kristin currently serves as a Storytelling Consultant at the World Bank where she is one of the highest rated facilitators.

Kristin has performed and presented on 5 continents in 20+ countries, her most favorite so far, Iran (ask her about that experience!). She is a firm believer in "flipping the narrative." As a survivor she seeks to serve others to know that your past does not need to define you, though yes, it does inform who you are.

If you'd like to learn more about Steer Your Story:

Kat's Bio: Kat is fascinated by all things healing. With a personal focus to heal her own traumas and pains she has taken multiple courses including Reiki II, Advanced Theta Healing, 500hr Myofascial Yoga Therapy and is now in the middle of studying the Hakomi Method (Mindfulness based Somatic Psychotherapy) with intention to become a Hakomi Therapist.

She wishes to share her knowledge and various modalities in her toolbox in a way that creates a safe container to empower others in their own healing journeys. Gentleness and Self-Compassion being the main co-pilots. She is a poet at heart and loves to weave juicy words of affirmation and rawness of human experience in her yoga classes. She teaches from a place of finding the asana shapes from the "inside out" hoping that others will discover joy and peace in their own expression of practice. Most of all, she celebrates all things "human and natural", including the coping mechanisims we have adapted and carried to keep on being here on the planet. Gently leaning into these dark places to discover our own light.
