Finding Freedom on our Yoga mat and other holistic therapies
Cheryl Killilea, Owner of Changing Lanes Fitness & Nutrition, Onalaska, WI
A trauma informed perspective asks us to view others with compassion and curiosity rather than judgement or pressure. On a yoga mat we move and breathe consciously, we can get in touch with emotions or sensations that are uncomfortable and that we’ve managed to avoid. We not only explore the physical postures but we look at the mind-body connection. Combining yoga, breath techniques and other holistic therapies to help loosen the emotional and physical tightness in the body caused by mental health disorders, addiction, and trauma.
The intention is to find peace, hope and stability during a time when that is missing. To allow participants to surrender in order to let go of pain and reconnect to love and the gift of life. Modalities explored will include: meditation, tapping, affirmations, mudras, gentle postures and breath work. Everyone is invited to participate and contribute as they feel comfortable doing so.

Leadership: Developing Trust and Safety with Our Teams
David Yebra, Division Director, Training and Leader Development, Texas Department of Criminal Justice
As leaders, we are challenged in implementing change and producing results in a dangerous environment. We do this at great risk to the reputation of ourselves and our organizations. We want our teams to be able to express their opinions and to openly share lessons learned, yet we find significant resistance to growth because of fear. During this session we will explore organizational concepts and lessons learned that have helped transform them into learning organizations. We will explore the role of the leader in developing trust and safety in the organization using examples from the military and corporate sector. We will share stories of personal sacrifice and courage in leading teams through difficult and dangerous situations.
