Trauma Sensitive Yoga

Why Trauma Sensitive Yoga?

☞The body is a beautifully complicated system that can be holistically impacted from a traumatic experience or set of experiences.  Survivors may suffer from physical pain and emotional unrest after experiencing a trigger or as a chronic underpinning of daily activities.  Trauma sensitive yoga can help survivors establish safety and learn how to discharge stress and self-regulate. 


☞Trauma sensitive yoga can be an effective and profound practice that has the possibility of leading to transcendence.   When someone experiences trauma, regardless of the nature of the trauma (victimization, car accident, natural disaster, or vicarious trauma) survivors may consistently suffer from physical pain and/or emotional unrest.  


☞Trauma can leave the body feeling dis-regulated and unsafe.  It can create a disconnect between the soul and the body. The practice of trauma-sensitive yoga can help survivors establish safety and resource their body in a way that feels authentic and manageable- truly unique to their needs.
