Yoga for Trauma Recovery: Theory, Philosophy and Practice

Yoga is becoming increasingly popular in mental health settings, and trauma-informed practices are making their way treatment centers, community programs, yoga studios, and beyond. As these practices gain popularity, providers eager to offer yoga often step into the work without a clear understanding of important theoretical and philosophical foundations. In this session, Lisa will share a foundational theory in trauma recovery and explore how yoga can respond to the needs of trauma survivors in studios, clinics, hospitals, and beyond. You’ll learn some of the different types of trauma, and common ways trauma manifests in the mind and body, as well as an important perspective to bring when beginning somatic work. This session will also explore how yoga philosophy fosters healing, and offer you a mantra to recite when you’re preparing a trauma-informed space for your students and clients. This session closes with suggestions to help you keep your trauma work sustainable.
