ATTCH is thrilled to offer approaches that help to regulate the body and the mind. We are currently offering yoga classes (day and evening sessions) as well as an upcoming EFT workshop.
"Dr. Bessel van der Kolk is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He has pioneered the use of Yoga as a therapy that is helping these individuals to work through their PTSD and regain a sense of mastery. He discusses mind-body connections in trauma, how Yoga works and precautions for teaching trauma-sensitive Yoga students."
Carol Prentice, Therapist and Yoga Instructor, has completed training with Bessel van der Kolk to learn the techniques of trauma sensitive yoga.
“Yoga puts you in touch with your body,” says Maté. “It puts you in touch with the part of you … that was there before the addictions even arose.”
And, he says, yoga promotes a “calmer state of mind that actually allows you to be with your pain rather than escape it …. That’s when the healing happens.”
Our yoga instructors have completed training at Kripalu one of the leading yoga and wellness centres attracting leading trauma authorities as teachers inclusive of Gabor Mate, Bessel van der Kolk, & David Berceli.
