Yoga Therapy & Trauma Sensitive Yoga Therapy in Practice Part 2

Written by 

Case Study #3:   – Previous student of yoga for many years.  No longer able to practice due to fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, resulting tension in jaw & neck.                                An example of how what happens in the mind, is reflected in the body.

Results after 3 mos. Using Combination of Physical Yoga Therapy and             Trauma Sensitive Yoga Therapy Techniques:

-         Noticeable decrease in anxiety.  The client demonstrates a lighter presence where there used to be heaviness

-         Release techniques have greatly reduced the jaw and neck tension

-         Gentle therapeutic program, designed for client’s particular needs, has allowed for a return to home-based practice, resulting in becoming comfortable in one’s body, and eventually returning to group sessions

-         Trauma Sensitive Yoga Therapy Breathing techniques and guided meditation to rest the  body and mind, enables the client to stabilize and stay grounded

-         Gain key ability to tune in and listen to one’s body in order to be able to self-regulate at first sign of tension, anxiety and stress

-         Letting go of anxiety and tension using gentle therapeutic yoga practice, the aches from the fibromyalgia have decreased due to improved circulation, and the release of uptight muscles and joints.
