It is now a known scientific fact that trauma is stored in tissues of our body. Our face, our body and our posture store the history of our lifetime. Sacred yogic texts have recognised this fact for thousands of years. Metaphysically and scientifically, our fate lies deep within. Our past trauma is stored in our cells, our genes and our DNA. Trauma not only effects our cells, but it changes our body, our gut, our brain wave patterning, our nervous system and our brains. The memory of the past that lives within us sees us often trying to suppress the inner chaos inside ourselves at the expense of our spontaneous involvement in life.

In this course, through methods of trauma release for the muscles, organs and fascia, we will explore the ways to unlock the karmic fate of the body and bring freedom of movement and mind into the present. Trauma Sensitive Yoga is an essential key to free the knots of the past. Breathing together, moving together, touch and eye contact with trusted others help us to dissolve the past and the fate that lies in our genes.
