Yoga heals trauma. It works.
Less than 5 years ago I had debilitating PTSD that I had been struggling with since I was 19 & experienced severe trauma. I had nightmares every night & flashbacks every day. Panic attacks were a daily event, happening throughout the day & every time I heard the sound of an ambulance. I had dropped out of school, gained weight, started drinking a lot & gotten arrested several times. There were actual physical scars on my brain & I thought that I was permanently damaged.
Yoga isn't a magic pill or an easy button though. You have to actually do work. You don't just buy cute yoga pants, do a few down dogs & get better. THIS is how I healed myself from trauma & got my life back.
First, the breathing exercises helped me to control & calm my panic attacks. Pranayama, the breathing techniques of yoga are scientifically proven to manage stress & get you out of flight or fight mode (your sympathetic nervous system). Where the mind goes, the breath follows. Control the breath, control the mind. This was step one in getting my power back.

Then, the somatic experiencing that happens in an asana practice when you notice & connect to sensations in the body, instead of pushing them away, let me release the trauma being stored in my body. The body always keeps the score. The issues are in the tissues. We remember in our bones. We hold the imprint of our experiences.
The built-in discipline system of yoga snapped me out of addiction & the new found sensitivity in my body caused me to start eating better.
Meditation made me less reactive & more patient. It is actively rewiring my brain chemistry, making new patterns where I used to think permanent scars were.

I stopped living in the past & started paying attention to what is happening right now. That caused me to awaken in ways that I wasn't expecting & to start caring a lot about other humans, the planet & my connection to it all. Stone by stone, I have rebuilt the foundation of my life with this practice as my guide. I am here to tell you that much like any recovery program, it works if you work it. Show up. Do the work.
It works.

Part 1 of a practice I miss so much. @siddhabound made me this mala and I keep it with me. I've fallen away from #butiyoga because I've been in a really rough spot, but this is my first practice in a long time. Just flowing with the music. In my undies and my favorite sweater. Who fucking cares. I'm happy. #buti #butiflow #yogahealstrauma

Sometimes my morning “yoga flow” is actually just me drinking warm chai tea out of a Santa mug, wearing fuzzy socks, doing random stuff, stretching, rolling out, and playing with Copper when he brings his toys to me 😂🧘🏾‍♀️ Apparently on Fridays we’re suppose to flex so maybe I’ll get a lift in later. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Tree of hope. This was an amazing conference! We were able to share our innovative approach to healing trauma for survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence to people from all n over the country.
in addition, I was able to deepen my own knowledge of trauma in some intense and wonderful workshops. #yogahealstrauma #blessed🙏 #survivors #nomore #itsonus

“What the World needs right now is to share a sacred space with others, to really be there for others, when WE can to really show each other and suport each other through this one on one interpersonal connection ...and to bring that to all the beings that We meet...”
The healing process is inbeded in You.
-Gabe Salomon.

Be Yourself, honor Yourself and grow with each experience, nothing happens for no reason.
Honor Yourself as a beautiful part of Creation and Do what makes You feel alive, live from Your heart.
Find that thing that makes You dance inside and makes You shine and heal and do it, do it for You.
Be at service for the planet and others.

Sometimes we need to go to our edges.

Going to our edges is an important part of building self awareness. We need to know how far we can push or pull back, how to keep our bodies and hearts safe, when too much is enough and when to keep pushing through to growth.

Sometimes we need to get to a breaking point as part of knowing ourselves more deeply.
For years I was caught in an emotional pain cycle as I discovered my edges. If I'm really honest with myself, I admit that part of me was drawn to living on an emotional edge, and the emotional stimulation it brought: the edge of love, the edge of loss, the edge of feeling free, the edge of ALMOST, but not quite.
It was going to these places and having to confront my own negative patterns and self sabotage that ultimately brought me to a place of radical self acceptance and an internal transformation I did not quite expect: a calm and unshakable feeling of being grounded in myself.
Knowing the situations, emotional patterns and choices that led me too far past my edge, I easily identify now where I'm no longer willing or able to go. Living in the shadows of my darker self brought me back to share the light.

What does going to your edges reveal for you?
