Communities of Care

Lesson Description

The stress and trauma of a global pandemic that requires isolating from human contact adds a layer of stress on people who already feel marginalized, stigmatized and excluded. Strategies for managing ongoing, cumulative and recurrent episodes of race-based traumatic stress are more important now than ever. Restorative Yoga can help.
