who's trauma sensitive for
In our culture there is often a degree of guilt that comes with acknowledging our own trauma, we tend to associate the word only with cataclysmic, earth shattering events, and so fail to recognise when an accumulation of minor traumas has left us with a feeling of frustration and stress. There will always be people who have it worse than you, and those who have it better, this does not invalidate your personal experience, and it should not be an obstacle to addressing your own challenges and living with a sense of wellbeing. In short, trauma sensitive yoga is for anyone, at any stage of life, who is dealing with the challenges of the human condition.
