Overcoming Trauma through Yoga: Reclaiming Your Body

Survivors of trauma—whether abuse, accidents, or war—can end up profoundly wounded, betrayed by their bodies that failed to get them to safety and that are a source of pain. In order to fully heal from trauma, a connection must be made with oneself, including one’s body. The trauma-sensitive yoga described in this book moves beyond traditional talk therapies that focus on the mind, by bringing the body actively into the healing process. This allows trauma survivors to cultivate a more posi

    I bought this book because my daughter suffers from severe PTSD as a result of early childhood trauma. I expected to read some ‘how to tips.’ Instead, I was blessed with scholarly discussions of the possibility of healing for my daughter from one of the leading trauma treatment researchers in the world! The book is very readable for a lay person who does not do yoga herself. There are some simple exercises to get a person started that can be done by anyone. I have recommended the book to my daughter’s therapist. When I identify a yoga instructor, I am going to make sure that he/she reads the book if he/she hasn’t done so already. I am hopeful that this book will mark a new stage in my daughter’s healing and in my personal growth.

    Overcoming Trauma through Yoga is one of the best books I have read on this subject. It has helped me to understand why, as a student of yoga, I have certain habits when I attend a class with strangers. And it is incredibly helpful to me as a yoga teacher. I teach yoga to people who have been through some of the toughest situations imaginable.
    The book teaches us to be mindful, respectful and compassionate toward our students and ourselves. This book will be with me for a long time to come.

    This book brings a heap of research on trauma that is nicely packaged for the everyday reader. The book is filled with helpful facts that show how yoga, as a practice, can help people with deep-seated trauma issues to move in their bodies and in their lives. My challenge with this book is that it presents yoga as a packaged “treatment” for individuals who suffer from PTSD and complex trauma. As is common in the trauma literature, the authors find it necessary to stamp “trauma” onto yoga practice to somehow fit yoga (now called trauma-sensitive yoga) into the trauma framework. It seems more helpful to view yoga as a pathway out of trauma as a form of suffering. And, rather than guide readers to search for “trauma-sensitive yoga” classes, why not simply help readers to find a yoga class that fits for them, their personal trauma considerations included. I work with young people who have past childhood trauma and so fully appreciate that trauma has real consequences for one’s quality of life. My work with young people has also taught me that trauma survivors are a unique bunch with interests and preferences as varied as the next group. Yoga is a practice, a beautiful practice of mind, body and spirit. It is the yoking of mind and body and can be an expression of spirit. My hypothesis is that trauma survivors who are guided by clinicians to find their way into community yoga classes that feel right to them will be more at ease than those taking trauma Center yoga classes. That said, I am glad to see this book available and will keep a copy on my bookshelf.

    This review is from: Autobiography of a Yogi (Reprint of the Philosophical library 1946 First Edition) (Paperback)

    Five stars are a poor symbol to represent Yogananda’s opus. This is a great book-comparable to any of the world’s scriptures in its ability to transform the reader’s consciousness. Imagine Christ, Buddha, or Krishna telling their life story in their own words. That’s what you get when you read Autobiography of a Yogi. With humor, wisdom, and heart, Yogananda relates the extraordinary events of his life. But those events serve as a mere instrument for conveying sublime truths-truths expressed in such clear language that everyone can grasp them. I thank Crystal Clarity Publishers for making available the original version of this great work, and I give it my highest recommendation. If you are interested in spirituality, buy it now.

    Yogananda was one of the greatest spiritual figures of the 20th century — we are very fortunate to have his autobiography!

    This book is full of wisdom. Whether you read it quickly, or decide, like some do, to take the time and try to gain a deep understanding of yoga, you are bound to be inspired.

    One of the wonderful things about Yogananda’s writings is that they are so universal and accessible. Even my grandmother, an Episcopalian, is a big fan of his! This is one of those classics that can be appreciated by anyone who is open to true spiritual teachings, no matter their source.

    To me, this original, unedited edition is also especially powerful. It seems to more purely express what I like most about Yogananda. I highly recommend it!

    I have read Autobiography of a Yogi about a dozen times. I saw an unedited version was released, and so I bought and read this. It is very much worth reading.
