Welcome to yoga for your health. This yoga class is Yoga for PTSD.
In this short I will share with you how yoga class helps with post traumatic stress disorder, can elevate stress caused by trauma.
Understanding Yoga and PTSD
Yoga for PTSD is also called trauma informed yoga.
It is estimated that one in three people experience PTSD or trauma in their lifetime. Veterans often cope with depression, exhaustion, ptsd and other mental health issues.
War, rape, violence at any kind trauma can stay behind, embedded in our body and mind long after the trauma has ended.
In this state of being the sympathetic nervous system is always on high alert.
This means that the complex stress response, fight or flight is constant.
Sufferers in this state of being adrenaline is surging through the body. Other stress hormones and chemicals are released causing stress on the functions of the body.
Digestion, rest, relaxation in the body are rarely experienced. Our body and mind can exist in this way without damage for only a short period of time.
The constant stress response begins to cause deterioration of bodily tissues. The mind on high alert begins to shut down.
When we experience the ongoing stressors of trauma, when we relive or remember the traumatic event or events, the body and mind experience as if it is happening again.
People dealing with ptsd often have exhausted other healing based treatments and find yoga curing. They deal with trauma and ptsd every day.

Mindfulness practices such as guided meditation and yoga are helping them. Psychotherapy is also helpful at reducing symptoms releasing and relaxing.
There are more options available if you were in the military and looking for an option. Yoga for ptsd is backed by science, it is safe and poses, postures and sequences are easy to do.
The practice of yoga along with therapy and medication can help. A trauma inspired yoga class moves slowly and encourages grounding.
Feel the earth beneath you. Feel the props, such as a chair, yoga mat, blanket or block supporting you.
Stay present by slowing your breath and be aware of any sensations you feel in your body. Be aware of how your body is breathing.
In yoga for ptsd or trauma be gentle with yourself to find ease and release stress.
Yoga is a process.
Repeating the class over and over again, in the same way, will help you find stillness, alleviate and some relief from the experience of living in a state of stress caused by trauma.
As a yoga teacher I have studied this sequence for treatment for ptsd, anxiety and trauma. The training has helped veteran warriors, men and women manage their symptoms.
