Traumatic events affect everyone and can result in isolation, feelings of helplessness, chronic pain, eating disorders, addiction, insomnia, anxiety and depression. Trauma- informed yoga introduces healthy, body-based self-regulation skills, and provides a framework for connecting to the present moment in a safe way. Trauma-informed yoga can empower you to live a more connected and embodied life. This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in learning more about trauma-informed yoga.
