what is trauma aware yoga?
All Kendra's classes are trauma aware. Trauma-aware yoga practice offers a safe and sensitive space for everyone to learn self-regulation and self-awareness skills that build sustainable resilience. It is about feeling safe and at-home in our bodies by offering choice. Anxiety and depression, are often the result of unresolved trauma.
Some principles you will find in Kendra's trauma aware classes are;
Recognition that you are the expert of your body and experiences.
Safety and comfort are the foundation of the practice.
Focus is on developing interoception, an experience of a 'felt sense'.
Recognition that offering choices empower you to choose what feels right for your body at any moment.
Minimize overstimulation of senses by dimming lights, not using oils or incense, and use of Sanskrit language.
The assumption that everyone in the class has suffered some form of trauma.
Acknowledgment that somebody shapes and yoga props might make students feel vulnerable.
The use of invitational language allows self-agency.
Use of rhythms to offer grounding and a feeling of safety.
Practicing present moment awareness.
The use of touch is with permission and with the intention to increase interoception not force the body into an ideal shape.
