Research on Trauma (3/27)

Lots of the benefits of yoga are universal – we benefit physically and mentally from moving, breathing, and clearing the mind.  Being aware of issues around trauma is important for teachers sharing yoga in non-traditional settings… particularly non-profits that specifically serve people likely to have experienced trauma. You can’t tell by looking at someone if they are a trauma survivor, but many people have experienced trauma in their lives, whether others realize it or not.

In this weekly post I aim to share articles on research or information related to trauma – with or without a direct connection to yoga.
