What is Yoga? What is trauma Yoga?
According to yogic wisdom and practice, the human heart holds the key to awakening greater, more expanded levels of energy, accessing our third eye or wisdom, deeper soul and experiencing inner peace.
Yoga is taught as mainly a physical practice with the main importance on bodily postures, strength and flexibility. Like a branch is part of a tree, the physical aspect of yoga, or asana, is one branch of the great tree and eight limbs of yoga.
Though well over 5,000 years old, yoga has incredible relevance today. It’s practiced all around the world by people from all walks of life and is a major force in shaping the emerging consciousness on the planet.
The true, deeper yoga is a path for body, mind and soul. It transcends differences and s the technology of awakening the heart, the space of pure consciousness within us; you experience our connection to source and the unity of all things.
Yoga for trauma or PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress, is gentler and empowering to reduce or eliminate the feeling of anxiety. Additional training is needed to certified Yoga Teachers in order to postively effect students that experience stress, anxiety or fear of moving forward and want to let go of the traumatic memories of the past.
