I have been away from the blog longer than I should have been! The last couple of months have been particularly difficult and I had the added difficulty of of dealing with addiction issues of someone close to me. All of my energy was sapped from by that experience when added to the load of other issues.
While I was dealing with all of these dramas I started to pay a little more attention to yogis who deal with these areas of life. One who stands out in the recovery/addiction world is Tommy Rosen. He runs a Recovery 2.0 program. I personally think yoga is a good beginning point to recovery.
In the world of trauma sensitive yoga, David Emerson is one of the first names to come up in a search and he currently teaches at Kripalu. I think picking up a few materials on this subject could benefit any yoga practitioner because it allows us to hold a space for others who may need freer yoga cues or more sensitivity.
Hopefully this blog brought to light some areas of yoga you hadn't previously thought of. I enjoyed taking time to learn about these areas and hope one day I may be able to explore them in more depth.
