Trauma-informed Yoga therapy may seem like something recent, but it’s actually been around for a long time. In fact, it started in the 1920s. Yoga, (which obviously goes back much further than that) can have quite a number of therapeutic benefits. Here at the Trauma and Beyond Center ®, we utilize yoga therapy in our work with trauma and anxiety. You do not need to be a yoga expert to benefit. We’ve found it to be extremely effective in treating anxiety in our Los Angeles location.
At the Trauma and Beyond Center ®, we have many different therapy modalities that allow us to treat both the body as well as the mind. Yoga Therapy is a gentle and holistic way to work with the body. Focusing on the body has benefits for one’s emotions as well. Yoga therapy can help in healing underlying trauma that has been stuck in the body.
Yoga at Your Level
Just as with any other kind of therapy, we make sure that you never take on too much too soon. The beauty of Yoga Therapy is that does not need to be strenuous. Our certified yoga therapist will “ work with you where you are.” Whereas some types of yoga might push someone hard, yoga therapy is a gentle and individualized approach. You never need to feel overwhelmed while still experiencing the benefits. We use yoga therapy in concert with other therapeutic modalities. Our treatment approach in integrative and holistic.
