Traumatic events often result in isolation and feelings of helplessness. Traumatic stressors can cause symptoms, including anxiety and depression, which in turn may lead individuals to develop a variety of dysfunctional coping strategies. Yoga Therapy can help trauma survivors by introducing better coping skills, and helping them to use their breath and body sensations to connect to the present moment.
