"Trauma... is not just an event that took place sometime in the past; it is also the imprint left by that experience on mind, brain, and body. "
- Bessel van der Kolk
TRAUMA-SENSITIVE YOGA THERAPY
Private one to one sessions are a big part of what Sara-mae offers as it gives her a way to work individually with many people who have experienced a traumatic event, including childhood trauma, relational trauma, attachment issues and behavioural trauma, grief and loss and so much more.
Trauma presents itself differently to each person that has been effected by a traumatic event or experience. We become traumatised when our ability to respond to a 'perceived' threat is overwhelmed in some way.
Trauma brings a loss of connection to all that we are, our bodies, our emotions, our families and everything around us.
Trauma-informed yoga therapy is based on a particular understanding of trauma, with an emphasis on its impact on the entire mind-body system, as opposed to particular mental states that are often viewed in isolation from the physical body.
