“Say More About That” Show Notes: Episode #37 – Yoga for trauma recovery

Jeff Guenther, MS, LPC on Nov 10, 2019 in Say More About That

Today on the podcast, I talk to Lisa Danlchuck, LMFT, an expert on trauma-informed yoga (TIY). We discuss what trauma-informed yoga is, who it's good for and what therapists should know about it. I ask her what the number one best yoga pose is to promote healing, what type of traumas TIY can target, and if it can work for folks that are might be disabled or lack flexible, and so much more.

Questions and topics I discuss with Danielle in the episode:

  • What is trauma-informed yoga (TIY)?
  • Who teaches TIY? Who might it be good for?
  • Who might it not be good for?
  • What do yoga teachers and mental health practitioners need to know about TIY?
  • Is there a specific yoga posture or sequence that is most healing?
  • Can non-trauma informed Yoga be triggering if you are suffering from PTSD? 
  • What can TIY get to that talk therapy can't access?
  • Can TIY help with little t trauma and big T trauma?
  • What if the client isn't super flexible and they can't get into all the poses?
