in grace: survivor yoga series
BRINGING THE BODY INTO AWARENESS
After the experience of a traumatic or life altering event, our bodies may hold onto the experiences, causing manifestations of illnesses, chronic pain and unexplainable emotional dysregulation. As a result, many experience challenging and frightening feelings of betrayal, shame and guilt from their body. In some cases, the body may shut down and feels numb.
These symptoms can be characterized as our bodies traumatic 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.
