SPOUSONOMICS X200 | ADVOCATE.COMOvercoming Trauma Through Yoga: Reclaiming Your Body by David Emerson and Elizabeth Hopper
Whether trauma stems from an accident, abuse, or even war, survivors often underestimate the profound wounds caused by feelings of betrayal by a body that failed to protect them. David Emerson and Elizabeth Hopper write that a connection between mind and body must be made before one can fully recover from traumatic circumstances — and this connection, they believe, can come from a distinctive style of trauma-sensitive yoga that allows survivors to heal the relationship between their inner and outer beings through breath, movement, and mindfulness.
