  • *NEW Trauma-Sensitive Yoga for All Abilities

    Based on extensive research at the Trauma Center at JRI, this unique, adaptive form of yoga works on lessening symptoms caused from trauma, whether assault, abuse, war or other causes. A combat veteran trained by the research team from the Trauma Center will lead participants through a series of gentle movements suitable for any body and ability. The series will focus on the six therapeutic goal of trauma-sensitive classes to help overcome the body’s response to trauma. While traditional treatments work with the memories of trauma, they don’t address the physical reactions of trauma the way this specialized yoga does. Physical bodies hold trauma: scents trigger reactions, for example, and noises cause a physical reaction first as the body startles before the mind processes. Trauma-Sensitive Yoga re-creates the bond and connection with one’s body. “Befriending one’s own bodily sensations through yoga will overcome the imprints of trauma,” writes one of the researchers.
