When the yoga studio becomes triggering

When the yoga studio becomes triggering

I was already emotionally raw. 

I had just completed an amazing workshop in Chicago with Molly Boeder-Harris of The Breathe Network on Trauma-Informed Yoga. I'm already an instructor of Trauma-Informed Yoga, and this workshop added so much to toolbox! I felt like I was in a safe space with like-minded people who genuinely cared about survivors of trauma, specifically survivors of sexual violence. I got teary-eyed at one point when we all shared our names and background, and so many of us identified as survivors. My own experiences of sexual violence were drudged up, but they didn't upset me as much as they could have, because I was with this group of people who really understood. I left elated, and more assured than ever that I'm doing what I'm meant to do.

(Mindful) Power Flow

Two learning disabilities. One anxiety disorder. Wearing a skirt over jeans in middle school. Looking like no other white girl you've seen (or so I've been told). All my life, I have deviated from the norm, whether intentionally or not, so naturally, my version of a Power Flow class fits into this as well.
