Yoga for Survivors
In recovering from a recent violent and overwhelming experience, it is imperative to allow the nervous system to reset. Most survivors continue cycling in the fight/ flight/ freeze response, hyper vigilant to threat, often finding it where it isn't, and often drawn to circumstances that reenact their trauma, in the psyche's brilliant way of trying to discharge traumatic energy held in the body. But without new tools or resources to do so, each new reenactment will unfold with a new addition to the burden. Working with the body and breath is essential to process the stored energy, and allow for a release from the cycle of reenactment, thus giving the possibility to find and develop healthy partnerships, with additional support in self care and communication. This class allows for a practice to be developed with low stakes, so when higher stakes moments arise, one can respond with clarity, true strength, effectiveness and ease. The class will help reset the nervous system, relieve pain, and slowly help release the burden of trauma, so that you can feel alive in a way perhaps you never thought possible.
