This 8-week series will be an opportunity to heal the body from symptoms related to trauma, stress, anxiety or posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Stress, trauma, or threats to one’s physical or emotional integrity activate the nervous system so we can react appropriately to survive the threat. However, even after the threat has passed, often we are left holding memories in the mind and body. The impact of trauma may result in physical pain or illness, difficulty with concentration or focus, dissociation or numbing, hyper-arousal, difficulty sleeping or eating, addictions, difficulties in interpersonal relationships, and mood disruptions.
Yoga is an effective tool to actively reconnect to the body, safely tune in to the mind, tone the nervous system and transform disruptive patterns. Yoga is the practice of uniting, or joining together all the parts of ourselves so we feel whole, present (physically, emotionally, energetically) and connected to the bigger world.
This unique therapeutic program will integrate gentle yoga postures, breath work, meditation, open conversation and psycho-education about the effects of trauma and stress on the body, nervous system, and how we relate to ourselves and others in the world.
*No prior yoga experience necessary.* The practice is highly adaptable for every body and level of ability.
