Symptoms of trauma have infiltrated into the lives of civilians, military persons, 1st responders and their families. *Studies show yoga and meditation helps combat the effects of post-traumatic stress.
"Deliberate engagement of the autonomic nervous system (via breath, movement and meditation) may help individuals with trauma histories recover and re-balance their nervous systems after exposure to a stressful circumstance or environment cue." (Justice, Brems, Elders (2018) Bridging Body and Mind: Considerations for Trauma-Informed Yoga)
Trauma is an all too common experience - life threatening situations, a move, pet dying, car accident, job loss, friend or family member passing - anything that does not make you feel safe or re-occurs - can effect ongoing stress or depressive states if not released.
We all process situations differently. Trauma-informed yoga offers an array of techniques to explore and practice tools to help move through recurring, triggered situations.
If this sounds familiar, these classes can help you help yourself. Together, we can expand the circle of healing and transformation!
