When trust and safety are broken through a crisis, the reaction is manifested in characteristics aligned with PTSD; namely depression, anxiety, flashbacks, recurrent nightmares, and avoidance of reminders of the event. You will also grieve the loss of self. You completely lose the laughter, passions and defining characteristics that make you who you are. You will learn practices that create a sense of peace and purpose, while developing beliefs around the meaning of life and connection with others.
Trauma can occur within a relationship when the actions of another violate the trust on which the relationship was built. The experience of profound and unexpected betrayal can be deeply traumatic. I understand you are going through one of the most difficult experiences of your life. Your trust and belief in the person closest to you has been shattered. To be deceived and manipulated by someone you love can leave you feeling humiliated and deeply wounded. Many blame themselves. You are not to blame. You did not cause it or create it – but you can heal from it.

Trauma Sensitive Yoga and Movement
When we experience trauma we detach from our bodies and spiral into uncontrollable emotions that can weck our lives. Trauma sensitive yoga is to help clients heighten their body awareness. It is to notice what is happening inside their bodies and thereby learn to release tension, reduce and control fear and arousal, and tolerate sensation. The practice is based on the growing understanding that trauma takes a heavy toll on the body and the brain. When the body absorbs and anticipates trauma, individuals are likely to experience hyperarousal, hypervigilance, and an inability to calm themselves. At the same time, their bodies respond by shuttering or dampening sensation.
