Reclaim Your Body…Transcend Your Trauma
Yoga and Group Therapy Intervention for Survivors of Trauma
Benefiting the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault (CCASA)

When: New round starts August 2014 for 12 weeks (2-hour sessions)
For Whom: Women-identified survivors of trauma
Cost: $60 per session (2 hours)
We know from research that the effects of traumas live in our bodies. If you are a survivor of trauma feelings of being overwhelmed are not lost on you. You might feel like you are on a rollercoaster that you just cannot get off of no matter how hard you try. It does not have to be this way. This group will show you how!
Don’t take our word for it! Here is what past clients have said: “I feel taller, stronger, braver!,” “I am more forgiving of myself.” “I intentionally hurt myself less.” “Having 2 hours where it was safe to be myself without punishment was a gift I will always cherish.”
No prior knowledge or experience with yoga is required to attend. This group will be a “closed group.” This means that no new participants will join after the group begins. All participants will start and end the group together. This format is conducive to building trust within the group – a quality that is crucial for healing to occur.

All participants will attend a brief pre-group meeting with Dr. Merchant to learn more about the group and determine if the group will be a good fit for you.
