Yoga Therapy


Yoga Therapy with Shira Cohen, learn what it is and how it can transform your life and your loved ones lives. A story, a passion and a practice to empower.

Dec 1, 2021

Candice Clark, liscenced counselor and certified yoga therapist, shares her story with Shira, of how her experiences led to seeking ways to heal and process her PTSD, trauma and discovering yoga therapy.

Candice loves evidence-based Yoga therapy because it's effective, long lasting and cost effective, whilst avoiding retraumatising or triggering traumatic experiences. Also explainsing the purpose of cognitive therapy and memory recall.

Find out why it's great when a trauma survivor actually gets up and leaves your trauma sensitive or trauma informed yoga class. Candice shares how daily exposure to inequality and violence contributes to constant hypervigilance.

We discuss the importance of trying out different modalities and inroads to prevent internalisation of rejection, how physiological and physical holding patterns of energy and emotions need to be experienced and released as an essential to healing trauma.
