This yoga and meditation practice is designed to help in the alleviation of mental and physical discomfort in the aftermath of emotional trauma. This one-hour practice can easily be divided into two shorter practices – the first being more physical poses, adapted to a clinical setting, and the second section is a more meditative practice.  This short program begins with an introduction that provides the clinical perspectives and benefits derived from yoga and meditation practices. The class section that follows includes poses, affirmations and breathing practices which many clients find ease their distressed emotional state that result from traumatic events.
