For many, the practice of yoga is a modality tool that can help them deal with and heal trauma. Traumas are difficult experiences that impact our ability to cope and live our everyday life.
Understanding Somatic Yoga
Somatic Yoga is a type of yoga practice that emphasizes the integration of the body and the mind through the use of movement and awareness. It combines elements of traditional yoga, such as postures and breath work, with principles of somatic movement, which focuses on the experience of movement in the body.
Somatic Yoga aims to increase body awareness, improve flexibility and mobility, and reduce tension and stress. It is often taught in a slow, mindful manner, with an emphasis on feeling and sensing the body’s sensations and movements. In a Somatic Yoga class, you may be guided through a series of gentle stretches and movements, with an emphasis on finding ease and comfort in the postures. The focus is on the present moment and the internal experience, rather than achieving a specific external shape or form.
Somatic Yoga can be beneficial for people of all ages and fitness levels, and it can be especially helpful for those who have experienced trauma or injuries and are seeking a more mindful and gentle approach to movement. It can also be a useful complement to other types of physical activity or exercise. If you are interested in trying Somatic Yoga, you can look for classes at yoga studios or search online for instructional videos. It is always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new exercise program.
