After experiencing trauma or abuse, many people report feeling disconnected from their bodies. Some people even numb the connection intentionally, as a survival strategy.
A trauma informed yoga class can be a safe, welcoming environment where people can begin to reconnect with their bodies.
Teaching from a trauma informed place may create a healing space by:
- offering choices
- guaranteeing no hands-on assists,
- providing opportunities to get curious about sensation
Relationship building and personal agency is our top priority in this type of class.
