Healing with trauma is vulnerable, courageous, and essential work for the Self. Trauma manifests in the body as stagnant energy affecting our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. By bringing heightened awareness to the body we can begin the process of healing from the inside out. In this 6-week therapy group specific asanas (postures), pranayama practices (breathing practices), meditations and relaxation techniques will be explored, taught and practiced to suit the needs of each client in healing on all levels (mind, body, spirit). You will learn how to utilize a yoga practice to repair and work with the nervous system; helping to work with your trauma and leave the group with tools to feel empowered, strong, and capable.

No prior yoga experience required. Each week's class will build upon the one prior, and will consist of yoga practice, journal prompts and reflection, and group process (talk therapy).

Bring a journal or notebook and something to write with.

**This is a confidential yoga therapy group for people wanting to work through their trauma in a supportive setting. Registration will include a brief phone screening with Rachel following enrollment.

Series Fee: $270.00 (6 weeks)
