Trauma-Focused Yoga

I provide group and/or private (1:1) Trauma-Focused Yoga sessions as an adjunct service to your trauma-focused psychotherapy with me OR  with a different psychotherapist. 

Why Trauma-Focused Yoga?

According to Bessel A. van der Kolk, MD, a leading expert  in the field of neurobiology of trauma and leader of the Trauma Center:

“Yoga is part of the overall healing process. Being able to find the words that allow you to know what happened, and being able  to place the memory in space and time, liberates a person from the tyranny of having to relive the trauma in the present. But only if the past can be remembered without the body being forced to relive what happened can one truly speak of recovery.

A research study done by Dr. va der Kolk , titled “Yoga as an Adjunctive Treatment for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder ”  demonstrated that Trauma Sensitive Yoga reduces the symptoms of PTSD.
