Trauma Sensitive Yoga

Trauma and emotional imbalance can present in multiple ways such as; low self-esteem, anxiety, constant worry or fear, insomnia, chronic pain, poor body image, and depression.

Stress and trauma not only impact the functionality and mental state of the brain, but also effects the entire health and well-being of the individual.

Without proper management, trauma sufferers may find a lack of engagement in life and social activity, increased physical agitation, insomnia, increase in pain and physical discomfort, or strain on relationships.

Trauma sensitive yoga has been scientifically proven to not only manage and regulate the traumatic experiences that become stored in the tissues of the body, but help to improve the mental and emotional state of the sufferer.

Dr Alison Howes is trained in Trauma Sensitive Yoga, and applies the psychological theories developed by leading researcher in psychiatry and trauma, Professor Bessel Van der Kolk.

Ali’s one-on one classes will provide self- regulating techniques, will help to reduce physical agitation and will improve neuro-endocrine and hormonal activity.

Ali has experience in working with Domestic Violence cases, refugee’s and PTSD.
