What to Expect in REFUGE

Feb 12th, 2019 caitlin Blog

Have you ever taken a glance at the Monday afternoon/evening schedule in Silverlake and seen "REFUGE." You probably thought to yourself, "What is that? Is that a yoga class? Workshop? I'm confused." Today on the blog, we're taking the time to learn a little more about this unique class offering at One Down Dog. Unlike any other classes at our studios, REFUGE is only offered once a week across all of our studios. So this class are really special! Keep reading to learn what to expect from REFUGE in the words of the instructor, herself, Sarit Rogers.

REFUGE: A shelter, safety, a sanctuary.

I’m a trauma-informed yoga teacher, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, writer and photographer as well as a long-time dharma practitioner. I am also in recovery and have been since 6/13/1993. I am a founding member of Refuge Recovery, a Buddhist approach to recovery, using the 4 Noble Truths and 8-fold path to heal from our addictions (drugs, alcohol, process addictions, you name it). Finding a sanctuary where we can park our shoes outside and bear our hearts on the mat isn’t always an easy feat in Los Angeles. I created REFUGE to fill that spot.

What it is:

  • A gentle vinyasa flow
  • Trauma Informed
  • Mindful (weaving the 4 foundations of mindfulness in or one of the path factors of the 8-fold path)
  • Accessible
  • Compassionate
  • All levels

Who you are?

  • Curious
  • Willing
  • In recovery
  • Not in recovery
  • Stressed out
  • Anxious/Depressed
  • Human

What is Trauma Informed?

  • Invitational language
  • Limited to no hands-on assists
  • Consent, consent, consent
  • Options/Choice

 

Come find REFUGE in Silverlake every Monday at 6:00pm, followed by Sarit's sweet CHILL at 7:15pm.

Namaste
