Yoga Revolution: Trauma Informed Yoga with Sarit Z. Rogers

Season #1

Jivana's friend and fellow Accessible Yoga teacher/trainer Sarit Z. Rogers joins Yoga Revolution this week to chat about Somatic Experiencing (SE) and trauma-informed yoga and healing modalities.

Sarit is a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner, accomplished photographer, writer, and trauma-informed yoga teacher. She is certified to teach Hatha/Vinyasa, Accessible Yoga, Yoga for All©, and Restorative and Yin Yoga. As the two discuss in this week's episode, Sarit brings yoga and SE tools to jails, prisons, and group homes and offers individual SE sessions and groups in rehabs. She encourages listeners (and her students) to "touch into the discomfort" and soften towards suffering and pain when comfortable and appropriate. Sarit offers a beautiful analogy for beginning this healing process: When addressing trauma, she says, confront it like a tangled up necklace. Gently untangle the trauma and take time to move through your process. Listen for more words of wisdom.
