Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy Session

Live Online Private Session

What is Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy?

Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy (TIYT) is a research based approach to healing that has been proven to reduce the stressful effects trauma (and stress related illness or experiences) has on the entire mind-body system, not just the mind. 

“Trauma”, Bessel van der Kolk explains, “is not just an event that took place sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience on mind, brain, and body.” 

This trauma-informed holistic approach to healing draws from neurobiology, stress physiology and medical biophysics while being combined with the ancient practice of Yoga to create balance and harmony in the body and mind.   Through specific techniques you will learn to self sooth, self-heal and self-regulate to feel safe, grounded and present. You will be guided on your journey to self-compassion and self-regulation, rather than judgement and isolation. 

TIYT creates a safe space to educate and empower you, and to honor your individual needs, reconnecting you to your amazing Self!

Is Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy for me?​

TIYT is beneficial for anybody suffering from anxiety, stress, depression, PTSD and even chronic pain. When people hear the word trauma, it’s common to think of events like war, a bad accident, or sexual assault. It can feel like a word or label reserved for certain types of severe events and experiences. I’ve witnessed this approach benefit a wide range of clients, this work is not reserved for one specific type of experience.

You may not see yourself as a survivor of trauma, but find yourself living with symptoms of anxiety, or feeling overwhelmed with moving through your day, or dealing with that feeling of being stuck.  The truth is that nearly everyone has experienced some level of trauma–whether large or small, isolated or ongoing.  The daily stresses of everyday life, for some, may be experienced and held in the physical body as traumatic.

 

What to expect in your private session?

Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy (TIYT) is a therapeutic approach to healing. I offer customized private sessions, specifically addressing mental and emotional health, as well as physical health.  A variety of techniques will be offered, including (but not limited to) accessible physical movement, mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, visualization, journaling and reflection. Sessions are completely customized for you; your needs, your pace and your goals. You will never be asked to do something you don’t feel ready for or comfortable doing. You will learn about your nervous system and what is happening in your body, as well as the role you can play in bringing more peace and balance into your days. A blend of techniques and tools will be experienced for self-regulation, mindfulness and to reconnect with your Inner Essence.

Please reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or to set up a session.

I am always happy to chat and explain further what to expect as well as how working together may (or in some cases may not) help your specific situation. Sessions are priced on a sliding scale to work best with your budget.

I offer a FREE 20 Minute no pressure phone consultation.

Please note: All group yoga classes are taught through a trauma informed lens, holding a safe space and offering a variety of options to empower you on your journey to self-healing.  Group Yoga Classes are not recommended as a substitute for private sessions, but could go very nicely side by side, if that feels right for you.

Integrative Life Coaching Session

Live Online Private Session

What does an Integrative Wellness and Life coach do?

My intention is to help you gain freedom from the past, release fear or worry of the future; while overcoming habits, patterns and limiting beliefs that block you from living a full, balanced, and happy life.  I empower you to overcome, grow, and reconnect to your inner essence...creating harmony in your life.

How will this happen?

First, it isn't a one-time magic pill. It takes your commitment to your own growth, showing up for yourself and being willing to make the effort to do the work. You will get homework, at a pace that you are ready for and comfortable with.  I will be right by your side to support you through the process, to clear away anything that surfaces and to celebrate the ah-ha moments!  Between our sessions and your commitment to your homework, you will clear away the “yuck” while integrating the tools you have learned into your days, for a lifelong positive shift.

What will our time together look like?​

I follow an integrative and holistic approach to creating effective positive change in all areas of your life (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual).  Each session, like each client, is completely unique. We will use diverse healing modalities to be integrated into our sessions, and some to be integrated into your life; promoting self healing, self love and continued growth.  Some sessions we'll talk more, some we won't talk much at all.  Each session is trauma-informed and client led, meaning we progress as you feel ready, and only in ways that you are comfortable with. I am here to meet you exactly where you are with no judgement and an open supportive heart.
