Reclaiming the Body

by David Emerson and Elizabeth Hopper PhD

Trauma survivors-whether from abuse, accident or war can end up deeply and profoundly wounded, betrayed by their body for failing to get them to safety and for causing them pain. To fully heal from trauma, a connection must be made to oneself, including ones body. Overcoming Trauma through Yoga introduces trauma-sensitive yoga, a modified yoga program developed at the Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute. Expanding beyond traditional talk therapies that only focus on the mind, trauma-sensitive yoga allows trauma survivors to cultivate a more positive relationship with their bodies through mindfulness, breathing, and gentle yoga exercises.

The book provides an in-depth description of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), explores the four key characteristics of trauma-sensitive yoga, and presents a trauma-sensitive yoga practice sequence that can be incorporated by home practitioners, yoga teachers and therapists.
