What does

“Trauma-informed”

mean?

Trauma-informed approaches honor that an individual is likely to have experienced previous trauma and/or emotional wounding. 

Trauma-informed care takes into account the mental and physiological effects of trauma when inviting self-awareness.

The language is invitational and the power is placed with the individual, not the wellness practitioner. 

Trauma-informed Care emphasizes

  • Choice

  • Safety

  • Autonomy

  • Empowerment

  • Emotional Regulation

But I don’t have a trauma history, so would I be a good fit for trauma-informed yoga or mindfulness?

Trauma-informed care applies to everyone. It simply respects the student’s autonomy and places the power with you.

Looking for a self-care practice that incorporates more flexibility and grace? Trauma-informed approaches may be a good fit.

Mindfulness practices including yoga can be distressing for individuals with a trauma history. 

Taking a trauma-informed approach while facilitating yoga and mindfulness practices can help facilitate safety and prevent harm.

What to expect

No Touch

Hands on assists without consent can be common in yoga classes and these can be startling and further perpetuate harm to those with a trauma history. 

Invitational Language

Each directive is an invitation and not a command.

You’re in charge.

A slower, mindful approach

If you are looking for a workout, this may not be the practice for you.

While there may be other benefits in the movement-based practices, the intention is to connect to your body and your breath.

No wrong way to do it

You cannot be “bad” at this practice. You cannot do it wrong. Simply arriving as you are is the only prerequisite.
