Trauma Informed Yoga

Trauma Informed Yoga

We all have a history of trauma to varying degrees. Sometimes, participating in yoga classes is difficult when trauma is impacting the nervous system on a regular basis.

Trauma informed yoga can be beneficial in both small groups and one on one sessions.

  • What you can expect:
  • Shorter practices (30-45 minutes)
  • Invitational language
  • Ability for choice the whole time
  • In person or over zoom

I’m happy to set up a phone consultation to discuss possible options for practice.

 

 

This yoga has been very relaxing and offers me a chance to have a wee bit of time carved out for myself that I never usually get to have. The way you teach the class is nice and relaxed and I don’t feel any pressure to be good at something. Just follow what my body needs. The day after yoga is especially good as I have a lot of medical issues myself and my body feels better for having moved the previous day. I will continue to enjoy your yoga class until you no longer offer it. Thanks for giving me this opportunity.

Thanks so much for that trauma informed practice. I broke down because I looked at my legs and realized they work and I can feel them. For so long they didn’t work when I was disabled, and I either couldn’t feel them or tried not to because of chronic pain. But when you block out pain you block out joy too, and love. So thank you for inviting me to see myself and reconnect with my body. To feel my body. And to acknowledge how far it’s taken me. And reminding me that feeling isn’t always painful.

Thank you! It is helpful that you make it clear that things like camera on/off, being late, to move or not are all optional. It takes such a load off. I appreciate you so much.
