Above and beyond trauma podcast

 This podcast is an interview with Above and Beyond Trauma, an organization that provides trauma survivors with online tools and resources related to the mind-body connection in healing. I cover a number of topics including: the neurobiology of sexual assault, core concepts of trauma-informed yoga, how yoga can complement other trauma treatments, and important messages for survivors interested in exploring yoga as a healing modality.

I started reading about you two years ago after being sexually assaulted. I had also just started practicing yoga, and knew I felt something powerful happening. It was the only place I felt safe. But I didn't have the words to articulate it. Reading about the work that you do helped validate what I was feeling, and inspired me to more deeply explore the importance of addressing the way trauma manifests itself in the body. Since then I've followed you on Instagram and even though I'm not much of a social media person, I honestly check Instagram regularly just to see your posts. They make me feel safe, cared for and honored in a world that tries to systematically invalidate my truth. I owe so much of my healing to the work that you do. I hope to some day get to take a class with you, but until then your posts are a blessing. Thank you for sharing your journey with others, for being so committed to your own healing in a way that is deeply moving and inspirational. Thank you for your work and your light and your commitment to honoring people's truths. I just wanted you to know that out of the thousands of lives you've touched, mine is certainly one of them. Thank you❤️" -Sexual Assault Survivor
