People in caregiving roles often put their own needs second to whomever they are serving. Feeling overwhelmed can affect our internal systems in ways that compromise our physical, mental and emotional health. Taking time for your own self-care is essential. In this Circle Up, we will discuss the impact of caregiver fatigue on the nervous system. You will learn simple mindfulness practices that you can incorporate throughout your day and tools to support yourself during times of stress at work, in groups and in your daily life.
Our guest facilitator, Chia-Ti Chiu, has been teaching yoga and trauma conscious mindfulness internationally and in NYC for over 16 years to elders, adults and incarcerated youth.
