This is a FREE event with a donation basket at the door.
Doors open at 6:30pm for a community social with beer and wine available for purchase. The presentation will start at 7:00pm.

Are you someone who frequents risk-inherent environments like the mountains? Join us for a community engaged mental health discussion in the Red Barn. Instructors, Aimee Huffman and Sasha Dingle, will explore the power of mind-body training like breathwork, yoga, meditation, and nervous system regulation exercises. We’ll talk about how these practices can impact stress resilience and improve performance and help first responders and outdoor athletes recover from traumatic events.

Aimee Huffman is a certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT), trauma-informed yoga teacher (E-RYT 500), health coach (ACE) and former Division 1 athlete. She specializes in using the lens of Polyvagal Theory and nervous system regulation techniques to elevate human health and performance. She helps leaders, educators and competitive athletes develop the mental fitness, nervous system stamina and emotional intelligence needed to thrive in fast-paced and demanding settings. Aimee has facilitated group mindfulness, yoga and mental training sessions in education, healthcare, technology and sports since 2016.
