Full Description

Trauma is more consistently being recognised as the root cause of many of the illnesses, experiences, diagnosis that are sadly a part of out lives today. The effects of trauma can often be exacerbated within a yoga context. But yoga has been identified through research as an extremely affective way to manage trauma as it uses the body which is the home of trauma. How the teachings of yoga are offered and applied makes all the difference to the experience a person has and the potential for healing to take place.

How can we offer a space for students that is free of any judgement or lack of understanding?

Posture practice and lecture/discussion
