trauma-conscious Yoga therapy
Anne offers Restorative Yoga and Trauma Inform Yoga.
As research explains, we hold our trauma and experiences in our bodies. Trauma-conscious yoga offers an individual a safe space for somatic processing. Trauma informed yoga is much more than holding a pose, we may learn a supportive mudra (hand gesture), a new pranayama (breath) or a calming chant or healing affirmation. When poses are used, they are gentle and respectful. Trauma-conscious yoga's focus is to restore one's sense of empowerment and self-agency. All clients can benefit from yoga therapy.
Restorative Yoga benefits include:
o decrease in cortisol, the stress hormone
o improves sleep, digestion and immunity
o releases tension in joints and muscles
o teaches conscious control of relaxation
o increases concentration and improves focus
o creates balance within nervous system
o activates relaxation response
o gateway to mindfulness
