Dissociation is a nuanced interplay not confined to the mind—it extends to the body's reactions. Emotional turmoil can trigger physical sensations like unexplained pain, numbness, and detachment. This complex relationship between emotions and the body unravels the mysteries of dissociation, enhancing our understanding of its profound impact. Integrative practices, such as mindfulness and yoga, bridge the gap between the two realms, offering a holistic path to healing and unity. Embracing the mind-body bond, we embark on a transformative journey towards self-discovery.
Inter-relational trauma can have a profound impact on how individuals approach and interact with relationships. In some cases, it can lead to a deep-seated mistrust of others and a reluctance to form close bonds or open up emotionally. This can make it difficult to form intimate relationships and maintain long-term connections with others. Trauma can also affect one’s ability to communicate effectively with others, especially when it comes to expressing emotions or setting boundaries. Individuals who have experienced trauma may struggle to articulate their needs and emotions, leading to misunderstandings and conflict in their relationships.
Join us on Wednesday, June 21st, as we celebrate International Yoga Day with free Trauma Sensitive Yoga classes. These gentle and therapeutic sessions provide a safe space for all participants to honour their bodies and cultivate healing. See you on the mat!

Trauma is een enorm breed begrip. Esther beschrijft het als volgt: "Trauma is elke onopgeloste reactie van het autonome zenuwstelsel. Trauma draait om de reactie van het zenuwstelsel op de gebeurtenis, en niet noodzakelijkerwijs om de gebeurtenis zelf. Dat maakt het zo persoonlijk. Wat voor de een traumatisch is, hoeft dat voor een ander niet te zijn.
