Living in this modern world, we are all exposed to stress & anxiety - and that has measurable effects on our health & wellness. In addition, many of us have been exposed to traumatic events and even long-term trauma in our lives. Those living with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder experience a range of symptoms: depression, intrusionary thoughts, avoidance, and hyper-arousal. Trauma sensitive yoga hands us direct body & breath-centered tools to change our brain structure, rewire neural pathways and restore our nervous system to a normal, self-regulating state. Whether you are a trauma survivor or just want tools to relax more deeply, this is a yoga journey not to miss.
