What is trauma-informed yoga?
It is yoga based on the iRest (integrative restorative yoga nidra), by Richard Miller, PhD. These practices are designed to reduce posttraumatic symptoms, and research has shown they work well. You can try this at home using one of his videos.
RECAMFT member Hannah Caratti, LMFT has trained Sonoma county yoga instructors in trauma-informed yoga practices. She spear-headed providing trauma-informed yoga to fire survivors. We are very grateful to her for her wonderful advocacy!
RECAMFT thanks the Healthcare Foundation of Northern Sonoma County for their generous underwriting of trauma-informed yoga for fire survivors.
