“The Yoga for Trauma training has truly transformed the way I work with clients. It has been challenging for me to find strategies I can use with both young children and adults, but the skills I learned in the training apply to all of the folks I work with. For example, I have been able to use belly breathing and body awareness strategies with young children by incorporating soft toys and a playful attitude. The butterfly hug is probably the strategy I teach most often. I have found that incorporating movement into my sessions has allowed me to build better rapport with clients and move toward the root of the challenges they are experiencing without the need to recount each traumatic event. I believe my clients feel safer in session, and I feel more prepared to witness their growth during our work together.”
– Elizabeth Gillette, LCSW
