Trauma Sensitive Yoga Helps Sufferers Use Their Body to Heal Their Spirits

Jennifer Turner was a voice student at the New England Conservatory of Music when her instructor approached her during a rehearsal.

“You,” her instructor observed, “aren’t in your body.”

It took her a while before she understood what her instructor meant, but when she did, it would change her life.

She took yoga classes, and the body control that yoga encouraged her to heal from her own trauma she still was carrying. It was, she said, “like coming home.”
