Key Therapy is the only place in CT you can find online trauma-informed yoga classes taught by a certified yoga instructor and licensed therapist. Promote healing through trauma informed yoga. Yoga practice will emphasize building safety and comfort in one’s body, increasing ability to observe and be present with sensation. Through mindful movement, the practice will facilitate somatic processing and re-establish a sense of empowerment. In this group, practices will support increased pathways for the nervous system to establish inner safety and predictability so participants can nurture development of healthy relationships with the self and others. Each group session will include two parts: yoga practice and therapeutic group process. A journal is recommended. Group will run for 4 weeks, with the option to continue. About the Instructor Dana Saad, LCSW, RYT 200 is a Registered Yoga Teacher and Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Dana completed her yoga training at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, and has pursued additional training in Trauma Informed Yoga (through Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga) and Yoga Nidra (through the iRest Institute). Her Trauma Informed Yoga classes incorporate a mindful approach to trauma processing, deep relaxation, and mind/body balancing intended to treat current symptoms related to an over active nervous system. Our emotions live in our bodies like water in a river. Without sufficient processing, the energy of trauma will be stored in our tissues and cells until it can be released. Stored trauma can lead not only to depression and anxiety, but to physical pain and progressive erosion of the body's health. To fully process trauma and live our best lives, we must address it in both the psychological and the physical self.
