Trauma is an experience of emotional and psychological overwhelm; when our minds cannot understand or process experiences, they often stay with us in our bodies. Yoga, breathwork, and mindfulness-based practices can provide treatment beyond talk therapy helping to alleviate the body’s experience of trauma. This is an 8 week group providing mindfulness skills, movement, and a space for survivors of interpersonal violence to explore the way trauma manifests in the body. Participants will learn mindfulness techniques to work with anxiety, post-traumatic symptoms, and depression — observing experiences in the body, and noticing them as they change.
