  • Therapeutic Yoga

Therapeutic Yoga offers survivors the opportunity to become reacquainted with their bodies. By slowly engaging with new postures and ultimately using their bodies intentionally, survivors experience feelings of control and personal power that are essential to healing journey. Participants are welcomed to make choices from the moment they step onto their mats. This simple act of noticing one’s bodily sensations and making choices related to the body has the potential to gradually alleviate the sense of alienation many survivors feel towards their physical selves. www.ashleybyoga.com
