Small Group Workshop
Memories of sexually abusive or violent experiences can be intrusive. The events may have been yesterday or 30 years ago. These memories can make it difficult for you, as a survivor, to connect with others and learn how to trust. Trauma-sensitive yoga can help you find union between body, mind, and emotions allowing participants to slowly access your truest self once again.
After experiencing trauma, the body and mind go into over-drive and anticipates danger even when there is none. Regardless of the nature of the sexual experience, you may suffer from physical pain or emotional unrest after experiencing a current trigger from the original event.
Trauma can leave the body feeling continually unsafe. Trauma sensitive yoga can help establish recourses for you to use every day and help your body feel grounded in authenticity.
Trauma-sensitive yoga is truly unique to the needs of the individual. It is a place to learn how to stay connected when your mind wants to check out.
Come be supported, learn tools, and relax in a gentle environment. Ask questions. Take breaks. Feel connected. You deserve healing.
The practice of trauma-sensitive yoga can help survivors establish safety and resources their body in a way that feels authentic and manageable - truly unique to their needs. No prior yoga experiences is needed and all body types warmly welcomed. Come be surprised at the beauty of the healing process.
