Trauma Sensitive Yoga can be a powerful addition to the trauma work you are already doing by bringing the body into your recovery work.

Trauma Sensitive Yoga is a clinical adaptation of a hatha yoga practice designed to increase body awareness, learn to release tension, reduce and control fear and arousal, and tolerate sensation.

 This series will support clients in learning about and connecting to interoception and the window of tolerance.

If you answered yes to any of these then this is your series

This is an educational and experiential yoga + movement workshop and is not mental health therapy. This workshop is for educational purposes and serves as an adjunct service for any mental health work you may be doing. We will not be assessing, diagnosing, or treating.

Is this therapy?

If you identify as someone in recovery from disordered eating or an eating disorder and you are looking to build your knowledge and increase your embodied awareness through yoga and movement. You need to be medically stable and we require that you have a therapist and/or a registered dietitian you are working with.

Who can attend the workshop?

Our yoga and meditations aim to be accessible meaning we teach by making yoga shapes accessible to your body utilizing supports.

This will be a mat yoga class specifically. Range of motion and ability that allows for getting down and up from the flow will be needed. A chair version of this program is in development.

What if I have never done yoga or meditation before?

We understand that treatment and care for an Eating Disorder is expensive. Which is why we have partnered with Project Heal as part of their Healer's Circle to provide 1 scholarship spot for somebody who is experiencing financial hardship and may qualify. Please reach out for more information admin@angeleaprior.com.

As a trauma informed therapeutic yoga teacher I see the strength in empowering a person to find what feels supportive to them. To foster their choice and experience by holding space for their curiosity and exploration vs. judgement.

I believe that this experience can begin to translate off the mat and be integral to someone's journey and recovery.
