Benefits Of Healing From Trauma With Revive & Thrive: Yoga, Therapy & Healing

Identify and break patterns that keep you stuck in life

Trauma, especially early trauma, has a way of interrupting life’s course; not always, and not forever, but often in ways that lead to a repetition of the same patterns over and over again and feeling stuck. Being able to recognize the influence of trauma in various aspects of your life and understand the steps to healing from trauma, can give you the chance to make different choices and get traction toward a direction that works for you.

Feel empowered in your own skin

One of the more disruptive aspects of trauma is the fact that it often usurps autonomy and leaves people feeling helpless. Beginning a healing course like Revive & Thrive yoga therapy can help to restore a personal sense of agency, strength, confidence and comfort in your everyday experience.

Build resilience, boundaries, and coping skills

Your body knows what it needs to heal from trauma. Re-establishing a conversation between your cognitive (explicit) and somatic (implicit) ways of knowing can help you more deeply understand your needs and limits, and strengthen your ability to trust yourself to set and maintain boundaries, get ahead of emotional dysregulation, and feel more in touch with your internal resources, leaving you more capable to navigating difficult moments.

Get support from others

Healing from trauma does not happen in a bubble, especially when a traumatic event happened in the context of a relationship with another person. Joining the community of others who have gone through this program (in a private Facebook group) gives you access to built-in support, as you are going through the program and after you’ve completed it. Whether you participate in this course in-person or from the comfort of your home online, staying in touch with the private Revive & Thrive yoga therapy community is one of the most healing aspects of this program.

Heal your mind, body and soul

When a traumatic event occurs, the mind and body experience it in different ways, often leaving people to feel disconnected. Talk therapy can offer significant healing, and sometimes has limits to its efficacy for healing from trauma, because the mind and body speak different languages. Including the body in the healing process can help you break through the limits of traditional talk therapy and elevate your whole-body experience of integrated healing.

Stop feeling shame

You are not responsible for what happened to you, and trauma does not define who you are. In this program, you can learn to detach from any shame you feel and build lasting self-love for every aspect of yourself, inside and out.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve been in therapy before, but it only helped so much. Why is this program different?

The many styles of talk therapy can help people make big strides in healing from trauma. However, because trauma often lives in the body, as well as in the memory of the mind, sometimes there are limitations to the efficacy of talk therapy as a stand-alone treatment. Introducing one of the body-based therapies, like Trauma Sensitive Yoga therapy, weaves together the mind and body in the process of healing from trauma and can help people take their healing to new levels.

I have physical limitations, will this program work for me?

Yes. Trauma Sensitive Yoga therapy is not a rigorous style of yoga, and its slow pace, and body-honoring invitational creates space for each person to navigate the forms in a manner that honors listening to the needs of each person’s body. The fundamental aspects of TSY are that it is invitational at every step, engenders the development of interoceptive knowledge, and encourages personal choice and autonomy. In other words, you can remain completely still and still participate in a meaningful manner, because this style of yoga is more about developing an internal curiosity, language, and honoring, than it is about making any physical movement. It can be done sitting or lying on a mat, sitting in a chair, lying down on another comfortable, and safe surface.

What props will I need to buy?

It may benefit you to have comfortable clothing, nothing too tight or restrictive, a comfortable yoga mat, one to two bolsters or supportive pillows, one to two yoga blocks, and comfortable blankets. You might think about the support your body might like, and feel free to augment with any accessories that can help you in that goal. The team at Modern Intimacy is happy to consult with you to help you brainstorm what might feel supportive for you throughout this yoga therapy course.

Do I have to have experience with yoga to do this program?

Not at all. If you’ve never taken a yoga class before, or are an avid yogi, it does not matter. Trauma Sensitive Yoga therapy is accessible for people with all levels of experience and physical ability.

Do I need a therapist (or I already have a therapist), is that okay?

Having a therapist is recommended when you work through this program, because learning about and addressing trauma can sometimes bring up uncomfortable feelings that you may want help processing on a more individual basis. If you have a therapist, it can be helpful to work with your therapist each week throughout this course, so you can benefit from the extra support and space to continue navigating how the course helps you heal from trauma. The team at Modern Intimacy is happy to help you find a local or online therapist, low or no-cost options, so you have ample support.

Will this program help me have better sex?

Address the long-term symptoms of trauma (emotionally, relationally, and somatically), can help you to feel more invigorated, embodied, and open to sexual pleasure.
