Trauma Healing Through Yoga


yoga for trauma integration

If you are a trauma survivor, or if you have been experiencing trauma stresses, you might be inspired to develop a yoga practice. Through decades-long research we have now recognised that trauma plays out its debilitating course in the body. In trauma the body’s alarm systems turn on and then never quite turn off. Our primitive brain is constantly scanning for threat and we often suffer from being intensely on guard and not being able to truly relax and feel at ease. We might have trouble sleeping and winding down. But worst of all, trauma destroys our trust in our body and intuition. We perceive the body as unknown, unpredictable, and unreliable, sometimes even as “the enemy”. To be in the body becomes scary, and we develop all kinds of conscious and unconscious strategies and coping mechanisms to avoid experiencing this strenuous state of hyperarousal or hypoarousal.

But the good news is that it is possible to intervene directly in the body and to intentionally and systematically begin to turn the body’s own alarm system down. 

In my Trauma Integration Yoga classes I draw on different body-based methods and exercises that have been scientifically proven to be successful, without the need for medication:

  • Yoga (trauma sensitive)

  • Somatic experience & NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM)

  • Breath and Relaxation Techniques

I will guide you, step by step, to experience the present moment in a safe environment and without the need to speak about the trauma itself. You will be able to release “frozen” trauma stress through body-based interventions and learn to regulate the nervous system. You will develop a sense of self-control through techniques and tools focused on body awareness, breath and other internal resources. 

How does Yoga help with Trauma?

  • Balances mental chaos and the dysregulated nervous system

  • Removes hormonal blockages and disbalances

  • Focuses on the present moment

  • Creates an open and free spirit

Therapeutic effects of yoga:

  • Acceptance-based coping

  • Increased body awareness 

  • Self-control and agency = making choices

  • Self-efficacy = taking effective action

  • Client-based intervention

  • Stress release based on autonomous nervous system
