Yoga for Emotional Trauma: Meditations and Practices for Healing Pain and Sufferingby Mary Nurriestearns
Synopses & Reviews
Many of us have experienced a traumatic event in our lives, whether in childhood or adulthood. This trauma may be emotional, or it may cause intense physical pain. In some cases, it can cause both. Studies have shown that compassion and mindfulness based interventions can help people suffering from trauma to experience less physical and emotional pain in their daily lives. What’s more, many long-time yoga and meditation teachers have a history of teaching these practices to their clients with successful outcomes.
In Yoga for Emotional Trauma, a psychotherapist and a meditation teacher present a yogic approach to emotional trauma by instructing you to apply mindful awareness, breathing, yoga postures, and mantras to their emotional and physical pain. In the book, you’ll learn why yoga is so effective for dealing with emotional trauma.
Yoga and mindfulness can transform trauma into joy. It has done so for countless millions.

Inside, you will discover the lasting effect that trauma has on physiology and how yoga resets the nervous system.
