It is rare to find yoga teachers who know about trauma. It is rare to find therapists and social workers who teach trauma Informed yoga to help their clients decrease symptoms of depression and anxiety.

And it is rare for them to know about the effects of trauma and tools to support their clients to process it. Though we all see the symptoms of trauma, we don't always see that the underlying reasons for self destructive choices and reasons for clients not applying recommendations may come from a deep psychological belief that they don't deserve to feel better, which may have originated from a trauma or traumatic attachment relationship early in life. If we cannot uproot that belief, recommendations won't be integrated, and health and resilience may remain elusive.
