Integrative Services: Trauma Recovery Yoga
This science-based somatic method integrates many carefully researched and proven techniques in a very specific yoga sequence that inspires a sense of safety and connection. It is easily adapted for all levels, ages, and capabilities. It can be done on a mat or chair at the level that is comfortable for you or you may simply observe and listen.
Trauma Recovery Yoga is known to help with insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, hypervigilance, flashbacks, and other effects of trauma being held in the body. It is designed to rebalance the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems and enhance the overall feeling of well-being.
For those who have been approved for this no-cost integrative service through the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center, online sessions are offered with Leland Holgate Sr. Leland is a combat veteran and was there for Route 91. He has used self-regulation techniques to soothe his body and mind after a lifetime of various traumatic experiences stemming from his service in the Air Force, physical therapy, substance abuse, and personal loss. He started the non-profit Warriors for Life America and teaches at the Downtown Yoga & Wellness Co-op.
