Yoga for Trauma Recovery outlines best practices for the growing body of professionals trained in both yoga and psychotherapy and addresses the theoretical foundations that tie the two fields. Chapters show how understanding the safe and effective integration of trauma-informed yoga and somatic psychotherapy is essential to providing informed, effective treatment. Uniting recent developments in our understanding of trauma recovery with ancient tenets of yoga philosophy and practice, this foundational text is a must read for those interested in the healing capacities of each modality. Readers will come away from the book with a strong sense of how to apply theory, philosophy, and research to the real-life complexities of clients and students.

Reviews

"Yoga for Trauma Recovery provides an accessible description of how yoga can be an effective therapeutic tool in the treatment of trauma. In this volume, Lisa Danylchuk effectively integrates classical yoga teachings and philosophy with contemporary psychotherapy and neuroscience. Based on her clinical experiences she provides compassionate examples of how yoga can foster recovery from trauma. By emphasizing how yoga, via breath and bodily movement, exercises the neural regulation of visceral organs, the reader is informed that yoga is an enabler of healing mechanisms that originate in the body and not from external agents."—Stephen W. Porges, PhD, distinguished university scientist, Kinsey Institute, Indiana University Bloomington

"This is a compelling volume filled with the author's personal experiences as a teacher and clinician. It contains stories of heartbreak and resiliency as well as valuable information on the various physical, psychological, and physiological responses to traumatic events. Lisa Danylchuk addresses stress in both adaptive and maladaptive forms and articulates how our thoughts about stress affect our experience of it. She touches the entirety of our being and what it means to be human—when hurting as well as when in health."—Carrie Owerko, senior level Iyengar teacher, Laban movement analyst, and functional range conditioning mobility specialist
