Yoga has long been used as a restorative, healing practice for victims of trauma. Since yoga is the union of 

mind and body, victims of trauma often find the practice of yoga a means to regain a sense of ownership and control over their bodies, as well as a way to enhance inner appreciation and self-acceptance. 


Meditation and mindfulness practices can provide tools to help survivors develop strategies for managing stress and coping with heightened emotions. These practices also teach individuals with a history of complex trauma to recognize, acknowledge, and accept painful feelings, and then redirect their attention to cultivate a sense of calm and safety during situations that would typically cause hyper-arousal.
