Although yoga and meditation have shown to be positive and beneficial for most people, recent research has shown that these practices, if not done with care, can lead to difficulties for folks who have experienced any kind of trauma in their lifetime.
Trauma Informed yoga uses mindful approaches to raise awareness for teachers to create a safe environment for those affected by trauma to comfortably explore embodied practices.
Creating safe and accessible yoga is a matter of social justice, as everyone deserves access to its health benefits. It is our mission to educate teachers and to create more safe spaces and classes for populations affected by trauma.
