trauma-informed classes

Trauma-Informed Yoga involves tapping into the physical, energetic, emotional, and mental states and learning to resource by titrating between the sympathetic and the parasympathetic nervous system with somatic experiencing, dynamic movement, restorative postures, meditation, and breath-work. Students are encouraged to explore the poses to whatever extent they feel comfortable, learning to approach each posture and sensation with curiosity, in an effort to honor individual emotional and physical needs. Multiple variations for each pose will be offered for all levels and abilities, as will options for a more active or more restorative practice. This class will be adapted to all levels and abilities. **

**I’m not a clinician. I'm a Certified Advanced Trauma-Informed Yoga Teacher, which simply means a yoga teacher with specialized training in trauma-informed yoga. Trauma-Informed Yoga is a great modality in conjunction with traditional therapies, but not as a stand-alone practice and is not considered a clinical treatment. I recommend potential clients seek the advice of a clinical therapist before taking trauma-informed yoga or yoga for trauma survivors classes.

Please be advised that not all triggers can be avoided. Sometimes big emotions come up in my classes! I do my best to create a safe and supported space for my students to experience this in their bodies and help them navigate back to a more balanced state when help is needed/requested. The goal of trauma-informed yoga, as I teach it, is to "dip our toes" into emotions we've been repressing by exciting the sympathetic nervous system through movement, causing similar physical sensations to those that we experience in a fight or flight state, and learning resources to navigate back toward a more balanced state. Over time, this builds tolerance to the sensations of activation/triggering and strengthens the ability to use resources to navigate back toward regulation.
