Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder breaks the bonds between you and your body in so many ways as you ignore its natural signals. By focusing on your breathing and body awareness, yoga can help rebuild those connections and let go of that hypervigilance that pushes you to the brink.

Yoga breathing alone relieves your stress hormones so you can self-regulate and calm down without medication. Body awareness is a key component of beginning treatment. You will find out where you are unwittingly holding your tension so you can let it go.

Emotions may rise. Balance may waver. But these are all steps in getting back in touch with your senses so you can heal.
