Strength for Survivors: A trauma-informed embodiment workshop

UHS is excited to announce Strength for Survivors, a trauma-informed embodiment workshop hosted by Survivor Services and Rec Well on November 15 from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Balance Studio at the Nicholas Recreation Center. Registration is not required, but is helpful to event organizers. You can let us know if you’re planning to attend through this survey.

Strength for Survivors will focus on strength training and is intended for student survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence and their allies.

Rec Well personal trainers will lead participants through a series of strength training exercises and movements with an emphasis on choice and empowerment. Survivor Services staff will facilitate discussion around intention-setting for movement practices, breathwork, and the impacts of trauma on embodiment.
