We all experience trauma from the moment we are born. We go from a safe and cozy place and all of a sudden are thrown into a big, bright world. Some of us then have additional incidents or experiences that test the resiliency that we develop as infants or as young children. This additional trauma changes us, shifts something deep within us and thus turns into conditions such as PTSD, anxiety and depression. Talk therapy and the like can only do so much, but recent research proves that elements of yoga, including movement, specific breathing techniques, meditation and mindfulness techniques are additionally beneficial tools for lifelong healing. As a yoga teacher, I have witnessed transformation on & off the mat on so many occasions that validate these findings. I myself have experienced many occasions of trauma, from losing a loved one to suicide to being on the receiving end of someone else's anger. My yoga practice was the one thing that I felt immediately connected to and still connect to for the healing benefits. I began studying the effects on the brain and knew that this was a modality that would soon become accepted mainstream for lifelong healing. Join me and learn about how yoga is used as a healing tool on or off of the mat. All are welcome to learn and participate.
