Healing Violence-Related Trauma Through Yoga
Maria Lopez and Natalia Quiñones from Dunna talk about how mind-body practices can be used to heal the wounds of violence in a context as difficult as an armed conflict and the subsequent transition to peace. They discuss their research on yoga as adjunctive therapy for PTSD and complex trauma, and also share other benefits that they have scientifically documented such as reducing depression and anxiety, as well as increasing emotional regulation and social capital in the communities that are working with them. Maria and Natalia provide insight on how to adapt in creative ways to difficult contexts and getting different actors to support the path towards healing.
