YOGA IN LIFE - Upcoming Events

Yoga Of Connection - Through Trauma Sensitive Yoga
A koha class
Beginning 13 September 9:30 - 10:30am
Venue: Yoga In Life, Titirangi

Ever feel like you have lost connection with your body? Like your body is numb and you don't have any sensations except maybe uncomfortable ones? At the time of trauma this was your body's way of protecting you. We can't begin to heal though until we can read our body's language in order to safely navigate our way through life. Sensations are the language of the body just as thoughts are the language of the mind and emotions are the language of the heart.

Yoga is a gentle and effective way back to wholeness.

In yoga we focus our attention on the breath and our sensations moment to moment. We begin to notice the connection between our emotions and our body. Perhaps how anxiety about doing a posture can throw us off balance. We can begin to experiment with the way we feel. Will taking a deep breath relieve tension in our shoulder or a movement bring balance, or a deeper out breath calmness. Noticing what we feel fosters emotional regulation. Once we start approaching our body with curiosity rather than fear everything shifts.

Body awareness also changes our sense of time. Trauma keeps us stuck in a helpless state of horror. In yoga we learn that sensations rise to a peak and fall, postures have a beginning, a middle and an end. Postures can help us to observe and tolerate physical sensations and to use this tolerance to disconnect current physical feelings from the emotional reactions to past events.

This class is suitable for anyone who has felt or is feeling disconnected.
