Alleviating Trauma Through Yoga and Meditation

Certain aspects of life are traumatic for many people, including childhood experiences, intimate relationships, work place environment, & medical conditions and their treatment. Many of us experience simple traumatic events, such as a serious accident or natural disaster. Fewer experience complex trauma, or prolonged exposure to extraordinary life-threatening events such as war, domestic violence or child abuse. All trauma has a physical and psychological impact, and yoga has been found to be one of the most successful methods of addressing its effects. This course addresses those issues through Kundalini Yoga & Meditation.
