Trauma Informed Programs
My mission is to increase access to trauma-informed training for women and genderqueer individuals living with trauma, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Increasing access means making trauma-informed training more readily available through sliding-scale pricing options, and by providing continuing education to movement practitioners as how trauma impacts their clients, and thereby their work.
Trauma Informed Personal Training Sessions
Smart and thoughtful strength training can reduce the physiological impact of trauma on the body. As my personal training client, I will create an individualized training program for you that reflects your fitness goals, while meeting your nervous system's needs day-to-day. Personal training sessions are 60 minutes long and are ideal for people who want to learn how to train safely, efficiently, and effectively. Additionally, I will teach you how to become more embodied outside of the gym, and how to use body-based self regulation techniques as you go about your day.
Personal training is open to women and genderqueer individuals of all fitness levels and abilities. We will work together in a personal training facility in Manhattan that can be accessed by elevator, and has gender-neutral, private showers and restroom facilities.
Embodied Movement Consultations
Embodied Movement Consultations are one-on-one 60-minute sessions designed to provide you with strategies to identify dysregulation and give you tools to restore balance to your nervous system. We will explore different practices that suit your needs.
These sessions may be in-person in New York City or conducted online.
Increasing access to trauma-informed personal training means not just making it affordable to more folks, but making it more readily available by increasing the number of trauma-informed personal trainers and coaches.
Sliding Scale Personal Training with Laura through Women's Strength Coalition
I am happy to announce that this fall I will be offering sliding scale trauma-informed personal training for women and genderqueer individuals living with PTSD, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.
As my client you will have an individualized program and will work with me twice a week for 12 weeks. The program will be designed to improve your overall health and strength, familiarize you with how to use equipment available in many gyms, and teach you safe and efficient movement technique. I will also teach you how to read a fitness program, and introduce you to trustworthy fitness resources. At the end of 12 weeks I want you to be comfortable navigating the gym on your own because, at the end of the day, my work is about empowering you.
During our time together I will also teach you how to become more embodied outside of the gym, and how to use body-based self regulation techniques as you go about your day.
