Trauma Sensitive Yoga with Serene Bear Yoga
Meet Billy – “I was focused on personal fitness that included yoga until a back injury changed my relationship with my body. I was in so much pain that even walking was difficult. Several treatments and physical therapy helped me manage the pain but I’m still not the same. I found yoga as a means of preserving my physical capability, growing stronger and diminishing pain. Yoga also helped me heal from a sense of loss of my former body. I hope sharing my experience and offering modifications in my practice will help others realize they too can access the healing of yoga.
“For me, yoga is a continuation of physical therapy. For you, it may be the means to maintain and improve strength and flexibility. Whatever your goal, yoga has a place for you.” – Billy Kuntz
What is trauma sensitive yoga?
What does a yoga session involve?
- Step one – Show up for yourself. We can discuss where you are and what you hope to achieve.
- Step two – We breathe. Sometimes the best yoga practice is just finding stillness and connecting to your breath.
- Step three – We move our bodies. We may be seated in a chair for support if getting up and down from the floor is challenging. We may be on the mat on the floor and use gentle flowing movement to connect with ourselves.
- Step four – We feel. Whatever it is that we need to. We learn that all feelings are valid. We have
compassion for ourselves. We get to just be present in the moment.
Yoga classes are typically one hour long but can be customized to your needs and goals.
