“Taking Tara’s yoga class has helped regulate my panic and anxiety. I use breathing techniques learned to calm my inner negative voice. Tara encourages you to be in control of your own movements; inviting you to listen and reflect not judge the feelings they produce. After class I truly have the most restful sleep I’ve had in a long time.”
Bloom Healing Yoga
Regardless of the nature of a traumatic event, trauma can leave the body feeling dis-regulated and unsafe. Many people who have experienced trauma struggle to find words to express how they feel physically, mentally or emotionally. Trauma-informed yoga classes can help people explore and identify resources for self-regulation.
Students can use the tangible tools from their yoga practice in their everyday life. Using these tools as resources for trauma triggers can help a student to begin to create a sense of safety in their body.
In this one hour long trauma-informed yoga class students will be invited to experience breath and movement. Each class will include accessible yoga postures, breathing techniques, choice making and mindfulness practices for experiencing the present moment.
