Empowered Embodied was developed for survivors of sexual assault by Pilates instructor, Trauma Recovery Coach, and SA survivor, Emilie Miller. It is limited to 18 female participants: survivors and those in service to survivors.

This is a Trauma-Informed Workshop* and framed around: Safety, Trust, Choice + Control, Collaboration, Empowerment, and Cultural Relevance.

For a survivor the post-sexual trauma experience is typically one of overwhelm. It is not clear what to do, who to tell, where to go...: mental clarity is one of many faculties that sexual trauma impairs in survivors. We can end up in the wrong therapy or in no therapy for years, living a life of fear and confusion.

Incorporating Pilates into a sexual trauma survivor’s healing process can help regulate their nervous system, thereby reducing overwhelm and revealing needed clarity. The following are some of what those attending this workshop will be offered:
• An overview of the body’s role in resolving sexual trauma.
• Pilates-based practices to regulate their autonomic nervous system (ANS).
• Guidance on how to identify the state of one’s ANS using postural and physiological indicators.
• Mindfulness practices that can be used anywhere, including during exercise.
• Handouts, including: humanitarian, self- affirmations; criteria to identify a fitness class or body-worker whose services are optimal for an SA survivor’s needs; and additional trauma-informed resources.

*Movement is Optional
