In this episode I talk about how trauma is held in the body and what can happen with our nervous system when we have traumatic stress responses. We'll look at the difference between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system and look at the reasons why a yoga practice (among other things) can be helpful for people dealing with trauma, stress & anxiety.
