what is trauma informed yoga?
Trauma-informed 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 informed classes are;
Recognition that students are the experts on their bodies and experiences.
Safety and comfort are the foundation of the practice.
Recognition that offering choices empowers students such as modifications of yoga practices that suit the individual.
Minimize over stimulation of senses by dimming lights, not using oils or incense and use of sanskrit language.
Assumption that everyone in the class has suffered some form of trauma.
Acknowledgment that some poses and yoga props might make students feel vulnerable.
Use of invitational language allows self agency.
The use of touch is with permission and with the intention to increase interoception not force the body into an ideal shape.
