Yoga for Trauma
Trauma impacts humans individually, vicariously, and historically. Yoga and mindfulness are empowering tools to assist one on their healing journey; recognizing that healing is non-linear, and sometimes feels like two steps forward and one step back (or, for real, sometimes feels like three steps back).
As a trauma-focused CYT, I cultivate a brave and healing space in my group classes, series workshops, and private sessions. I recognize that yoga can be intimidating and triggering for those on their healing journey, and I work to hold a welcoming, accessible, and accepting space. You are not alone.
If you’re new to the yoga practice or just getting back into it, I recommend some reading to support you on this journey:
