The path to healing comes in many different ways for everyone. Trauma-sensitive yoga can be a helpful tool along that path, by combining somatic movement with breath-work and mindfulness. Come learn how yoga can positively affect the autonomic nervous system and participate in an abbreviated version on a trauma-sensitive yoga class.
Yoga has been a passion of Heather’s for the past 12 years. After completing her RYT-200 through YogaFit, she attended a training for yoga for PTSD, and realized the potential that trauma-sensitive yoga has to be a tool in healing, while also seeing the lack of knowledge about and accessibility to it. She went on to complete the YogaFit for Warriors program, which is specifically trauma-sensitive yoga, and now is trying to bring awareness of it to the community she loves and grew up in. She currently teaches at-risk youth in the community with Urban Lotus Project, and is hoping to bring this model to adults in the community as well. When not teaching yoga, Heather helps with the family’s real estate business and loves to spend time with her husband and 2 children, doing anything outdoors.
