PTSD


This is a trauma-informed wellness program that acts as a complementary alternative treatment.This program can be done one-on-one or with your loved ones. We’ll focus on breathing techniques, physical posture and movement, therapeutics and restorative poses, mindfulness, and the mind-body connection. The goal is to get you to a place where you can safely feel your physical sensations, and learn how to self-regulate and tolerate feelings that come up. These sessions can help you reprogram automatic physical responses. They’ll teach you how to manage triggers by working with your breath, incorporating quieting poses, and learning how to feel safe in your body by developing a quiet practice of stillness and mindfulness.

You’ll learn how to be strong (physically & mentally) on and off the mat. You’ll learn how to be patient in an uncomfortable situation or when uncomfortable feelings arise. You’ll grow to understand that these moments come and go but eventually they’ll always come to an end. For instance, think about a hard yoga pose. Yoga teaches you to breathe through it, to be strong and patient, then just like that the moment has passed and you’ve moved into a different pose. Learning that you’re safe in these moments and staying with it even though sensations arise can help you get through many situations in life. Knowing that it was your breath, patience, and strength that got you through the discomfort, and recognizing that the moment of discomfort eventually passed is a critical skill in managing and living with PTSD.
