Yoga For Trauma - Introductory Session

It is now proven that yoga is an effective complementary treatment for PTSD and complex trauma. Yoga can help people working with trauma to tolerate physical or sensory sensations that have negative associations or are triggering, and increase their emotional awareness, decreasing symptoms of PTSD.

About the event

A growing number of studies suggest that yoga helps combat stress, anxiety, depression, and insomnia by calming the nervous system and modulating our bodies' stress response symptoms, such as heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing. Michael has a strong interest in these therapeutic applications of yoga and has studied Trauma-Sensitive disciples developing a form of Yoga to work deeply with the nervous systems capacity to affect PTSD positively. He has taught yoga & meditation to phycriatric inmates in Prisons and worked with those stuggling with various forms of addiction, including heroin and alcohol. Yoga isn't about being flexible or thin, or learning to put your leg behind your head. No previous experience is required to benefit from a therapeutic yoga class, and there is no physical fitness requirement. You do not need to wear a special outfit or to subscribe to a particular belief system. If you or someone you know is interested in yoga as a complementary treatment, please contact Michael. He'd love to help if he can, or point you in the right direction.
