Strengthening Families

Yoga has been established as a global practice for calming the body and mind, or self-regulating—a key strategy for preventing and recovering from trauma. It incorporates activities such as breath awareness, mindfulness activities, meditation, relaxation, and physical postures. Across a large body of research, yoga has been linked to reductions in autonomic sympathetic activation, muscle tension, and blood pressure; decreases in adverse physical and emotional symptoms; and increases in quality of life. 

Trauma-Informed Yoga

Bloom Yoga incorporates a healing-centered and trauma-informed yoga approach which focuses on particularly relevant elements of yoga and fosters a more inclusive environment well-suited to support parents, children, and families who may be experiencing or at-risk of varying levels of stress or trauma. 

Trauma Informed Care

Bloom Yoga fosters an environment that creates the following: safety, clear and consistent boundaries, predictability, choice, strength based, acceptance, accessible, non-judgement, compassion and collaboration.  These are all essential components of Trauma Informed Care –  a commitment not to repeat traumatic experiences and, in whatever way possible, restore a sense of safety, power and worth.
