Trauma Informed Yoga
Individuals who suffer from trauma-related symptoms are a unique population that could benefit from the mind-body practice of yoga—or have their symptoms reactivated by it, depending on the type of yoga. Trauma-informed yoga (TIY), that is, yoga adapted to the unique needs of individuals working to overcome trauma, may ameliorate symptoms by creating a safe, tailored practice for students to learn how to respond, rather than react, to symptoms and circumstances.
Trap Yoga is a project that has created hope in a community of health seekers that see yoga as a practice that can help heal the effects of racial trauma.
