Our passions sometimes give purposes to our pasts. Direct Impact Nation, join us as we welcome Kiersten Graham, a trauma informed yoga teacher. Kiersten explains the importance of the mind and body connection and seeks to provide a safe space for individuals to discover what is going on in their bodies, without fear of judgment. In this episode, we discuss the importance of blending movement with mental health awareness. Direct Impact Nation, help us normalize the mind being an active part of movement and exercise through this week's podcast episode.


Episode Outline: We talk about trauma informed yoga, recovery, normalizing mental health, and the mind and body connection.

Perfectionism

Body Image and Eating Disorders

Trauma Sensitive yoga emphasizes no expectations on the person walking in


Ex.) You do not have to be happy in class

Personalized practice and noticing your bodies cues

Balance of support during the practice and empowerment


Common humanity

The Window of Tolerance


Outside of the window of tolerance our body tells us we are unsafe and we react.
