In this conversation with yoga therapist Joe Simek and Breathing Deeply founder Brandt Passalacqua, Brandt discusses trauma-informed yoga and yoga therapy.
There are a lot of schools of thought about how to approach trauma through yoga and the more common one is a more passive, slower approach, allowing the practitioner to explore movement and breath while giving lots of natural cueing.
