Service Description

When trauma occurs, in an effort of protection, your brain temporarily pauses your memory processing system, and the experience is not stored as traditional memories are. Oftentimes, we don’t fully process traumatic experiences~ moving fully through the cycle of fight- flight (SNS) to rest-digest (PNS). When the body does not get a chance to RELEASE the energy associated with our fight- flight (SNS) response, it becomes stored in our cells and bodies.   Our natural trauma cycle didn’t get a chance to complete itself.   Trauma effects parts of the body where we unknowingly tense, clench and brace whenever we are stressed or fearful. This leads to feelings of tension, pain, reduced mobility. Common areas where trauma is stored are the pelvic region, hips, the diaphragm, the throat, the jaw, the hamstrings, or the shoulders and neck. Yoga activates the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS) that helps assist your body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension, anxiety, and trauma. By releasing muscle tension, your nervous system calms down, and your body can return to a more balanced state. For trauma survivors, it can be frightening and uncomfortable to re-develop a relationship with the body. Slow, steady movement creates the space for us to reconnect at our own pace and begin to cultivate control over our experience -abilities that were lost when trauma occurred. Private yoga sessions for trauma release will include individualized assessment of the areas where you may be holding trauma in your body. The session will include a gentle flow, breathwork and examples of poses/stretches to work on at home to open areas of the body associated with specific types of trauma.
