This 1-hour trauma-informed yin yoga class will focus on breath, mindfulness, and slow movement. The poses will be held for an extended period and will focus on restorative and yin postures. Props including bolsters, blankets, straps and blocks will be used to access each pose effectively and with steadiness and ease.
This group will help participants self-regulate using mindfulness, meditation, and breathwork techniques that can be incorporated every day. We will have our yoga in a safe place with the awareness that each individual participating may have experienced a similar situation over the past few years.

Yoga for All! – Why Yoga?
The research on the positive effects of yoga on mental and physical wellbeing is growing every day. It is known to be an effective complement to clinical therapy to help manage and cope with symptoms of trauma, stress, depression, anxiety, attention and concentration. Yoga promotes relaxation, self-soothing and body awareness skills and provides an opportunity to apply the cognitive therapy tools and techniques learned in therapy. Yoga also provides an opportunity to meet others and develop relationships, which has also been shown to help alleviate symptoms of emotional distress.
