The objective of this workshop is to make clinicians and yoga teachers aware of yoga’s special gift of healing emotional trauma through the experience of interoception and empowerment; with the caveat that certain modifications are needed for this special population of yoga students with past trauma, in order to avoid triggering and re-traumatizing them.  This presentation will consist of power-point lecture and discussion as well as an optional experiential trauma-sensitive yoga practice, accessible for mat or chair. Participants should wear clothing that is comfortable for physical movement.
