Trauma Recovery Yoga
This science-based somatic method integrates many carefully researched and proven techniques in a very specific yoga sequence that inspires a sense of safety and connection. It is easily adapted for all levels, ages, and capabilities. It can be done on a mat or chair at the level that is comfortable for you or you may simply observe and listen.
Trauma Recovery Yoga is known to help with insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, hypervigilance, flashbacks, and other effects of trauma being held in the body. It is designed to rebalance the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems and enhance the overall feeling of well-being.
