Zahabiyah A. Yamasaki’s supportive and compassionate guidance for survivors of sexual assault can be found in this beautiful deck of affirmation cards and book Trauma-Informed Yoga for Survivors of Sexual Assault. They also may be used on their own for relaxation and healing.
Trauma-informed yoga practices are coupled with each affirmation to foster a holistic healing process for survivors. Unique full-color art illustrates the pose and affirmation on each card, which may also be used outside of yoga for inspiration.
This affirmation deck also provides a powerful resource for yoga instructors, mental health professionals, educators, and other healing professionals who are looking for guidance on trauma-informed yoga practices to share with survivors in classes, workshops, and clinical practice.
Trauma-Informed Yoga for Survivors of Sexual Assault provides a comprehensive overview of how to offer yoga to survivors of sexual assault in a safe, effective, evidence-based, and healing way. Zahabiyah A. Yamasaki, program director of Trauma Informed Programs at UCLA and founder of Transcending Sexual Trauma through Yoga, draws on the framework of trauma-informed care and trauma-informed yoga program development and curriculum, while also weaving in personal narrative and inspiring survivor stories. This book explores practical considerations for survivors, as well as for yoga teachers, mental health professionals, educators, and other healing professionals who are interested in integrating trauma-informed yoga into the scope of their work and/or healing.
This book expands the scope and framework for healing and fills a much-needed gap in service delivery for survivors. Yamasaki provides holistic, trauma-informed, body-based, compassionate, and culturally affirming options for survivors as they navigate what is oftentimes a lifelong and nonlinear process of healing.
Book and Deck bundle come beautifully packaged and includes two affirmation stickers.
