Ep#120 More and more we’re appreciating how trauma is the residue that remains in our bodies following an overwhelmingly negative experience. I had the privilege of speaking with a real changemaker in the field of trauma informed yoga. She’s Brenda Hershey. Brenda has been working in the humanitarian field for several years in the Middle East and knows firsthand how powerful these mind body tools can be working with people who need them most. She is the President and Founder of Trauma Recovery Yoga (TRY) Global a non-profit organization, dedicated to bringing the TRY Method to displaced and vulnerable populations worldwide. Based in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Brenda and her team serve refugees, survivors of genocide and orphans. They do this by educating, advocating, inspiring, and training individuals in the Trauma Recovery Yoga (TRY) method. The TRY method is unique due to its grounding in neuroscience and a deep understanding of how the brain processes trauma.
