What makes this trauma informed?
An invitation to move. In fitness and many yoga classes alike, movements are instructed in such a way that most of us will feel compelled to follow --even if it's not what feels good or safe or right to us. Sometimes that can be what you want --say to help you get through a difficult workout that you want to do, and know you're comfortable with, but don't feel especially motivated to power through. But at other times, that kind of instruction is less a help and more of a hindrance, getting in the way of listening to ourselves -- of noticing what we need in the moment. Noticing and being able to choose what we need, knowing that's ok, is essential to healing traumas and hurts of all kinds.

You can give this practice a try when you're ready!

Be moving, be true, be you!
