Join registered Yoga Trainer, Karen Penfold, and Cancer Support Programs Manager, Stevie Hannickel as they discuss Traumatic Stress and Building Traumatic Stress Resilience in the context of their own cancer experience. This conversation is part 1 of a series discussing trauma and its effects on the body.
Karen is an inspiring 11-year, two-time breast cancer survivor who was introduced to yoga while recovering from treatments, surgeries, and a broken pelvis. Karen shares, “I could tell my body was healing and getting stronger, but something else was happening. I was healing from the severe anxiety I developed from post-traumatic stress from my cancer battle"…"I then set out to learn all I could about healing PTSD, Anxiety and Depression using what I now know as Body-Based Interventions like Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Breathwork, and other mind-body practices of Somatic Awareness, Mindfulness, and Therapeutic Meditation.”
Karen has specialty certifications in Trauma Sensitive Yoga as well as Meditation and Yoga Nidra. You can read more about what Karen offers on her website www.fullofhopeyoga.com or contact her directly at email@example.com
