What is Share Your Practice?

sunset-hands-love-womanShare Your Practice is a resource for yoga teachers and others on sharing trauma-informed yoga in non-profit settings. Yoga can be a tremendous tool for self-care and stress relief, and not everyone has equal access to this resource.

Typically (but not always) this means yoga outside a studio / gym / private lesson setting. Typically (but not always) the people who benefit are underserved in some way – maybe trauma survivors who are also low-income, maybe residents of homeless shelters, maybe people who live in neighborhoods that are plagued by violence and have few public yoga classes available.

Share Your Practice shares articles on the benefits of yoga in such settings, information on non-profits engaged in this work, and interviews with teachers offering yoga in this way. I also hope to share my own thoughts and experiences and spark discussion on this under-covered topic.

I am certainly not an authority on this topic nor on teaching yoga! But my long-term interest in this work motivates me to start this project and connect others who are similarly inspired.
