To heal from trauma means to face your pain and loss while simultaneously seeking solace and, at moments, finding joy. Doing this on a day-to-day basis is how you survive. Healing is an active state, not a destination. In that light, and no other, it is a beautiful thing.”
— Alice Sebold
 

WHY TRAUMA SENSITIVE YOGA?

FOR SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ABUSE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, AND PERSONS EXPERIENCING ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION 

 

After the experience of a traumatic or life altering event, your body may hold onto the experiences, causing manifestations of illnesses, chronic pain and unexplainable emotional dysregulation. As a result, you may experience challenging and frightening feelings of betrayal, shame and guilt from your body. In some cases, your body shuts down and feels numb. 

These symptoms can be characterized as your bodies response to the trauma. 

This trauma sensitive yoga session was developed to assist trauma survivors with developing a sense of autonomy and control of their bodies, facilitate the connection between mind and body through mindfulness and intention setting and to help survivors develop a positive and trusting relationship with their bodies to feel safe and supported.

Yoga sessions are 1:1 providing students wit individualized attention free of distractions to notice body movement, identify feelings and thoughts that arise as a result of the practice and discuss impressions with faciliator. 

THIS PRACTICE IS ACCESSIBLE FOR ALL ABILITIES, ALL SHAPES, SIZES AND LEVELS OF FLEXIBILITY. 


YOGA MATS FOR ALL!

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT IN GRACE YOGA

Thank you for the amazing yoga session! Going into the session I was unaware and a tad bit nervous due to the fact, this was my first time practicing yoga. But i would like to say the way that Jesecca instructed and controlled the yoga classroom environment helped ease those nerves. Jesecca's guided practice and hands on assistance gave me the confidence to practice yoga. I had such a wonderful experience and plan on taking the things that I've learned back home with me to practice on my own.

Thank you Jesecca for making my first yoga session the absolute best. Words can not describe how I felt leaving Jesecca's class. I felt so at peace so free like I could concur what ever came my way, not to mention the session did not feel like a work out at all ! Jesecca was amazing at helping me do certain positions I could not do well and made me feel very confident all throughout. I just want to thank Jesecca for helping me find something that can help me not only physically but spiritually also.
