YOGA & THE TRAUMATISED BODY FACILITATORS FOR BOTH DAYS:
Annabel McLisky is a psychologist in private practice in Bangalow, Northern New South Wales, and has been teaching yoga since 1978. She is an IYTA teacher and Senior Tutor in Dru Yoga and Dru Meditation Teacher Training courses around Australia. Annabel is excited that the deep physical and emotional healing enabled by the practice of yoga is at last being recognised, accepted, and valued by the psychological fraternity, and that people with a history of trauma now have the possibility to reclaim their bodies and “to live in the present, without feeling or behaving according to irrelevant demands belonging to the past” (Bessel van der Kolk), through the practice of Trauma Sensitive Yoga.
Shirley Hicks is a practising somatic psychotherapist and yoga teacher, with a private clinic based in the Gold Coast at Varsity Lakes. Shirley has a real interest in how the body carries unresolved life events and how through “talk therapies” the body is often missed. With over 23 years clinical experience she has refined the way in which she supports clients to involve their body in the healing process, drawing on the work of Judith Herman, Babette Rothschild, Peter Levine and Bessel van der Kolk . Her work is also influenced by Ron Kurtz and Hakomi.
