Why Trauma Informed Yoga? Research shows that more than half of Americans will go through a traumatic event at least once in their lives.
"Trauma is extremely common,” says Kristen R. Choi, PhD, a registered nurse and researcher at UCLA who studies trauma.
Trauma-informed yoga assumes that everyone has experienced some level of trauma or significant life stress so the approach rests on a set of principles that supports a sense of safety, support, and inclusivity for all.
You don't need to be a soldier or have PTSD to enjoy this yoga style. I love it because everything is a choice and it is all about reconnecting with your body while moving through poses thereby working trauma/ stress through and then out of your nervous system.
