Foreword Interview with Brendon:

“This week we’re blessed to hear from Brendon Abram, a veteran who discovered yoga during his military years and hasn’t looked back.

Get Yoga is a Trauma Sensitive Yoga studio.

Yoga’s main purpose is to help people find peace of mind; however, most styles of mainstream yoga focus on fitness and body image and happen in less than peaceful environments. For people with a trauma or stress related condition, the thought of going to a class under these circumstances can be intimidating.

All of our yoga instructors have trauma sensitive teacher training and bring this knowledge and awareness into public yoga classes. We offer trauma sensitive yoga classes, workshops and private sessions for those who would like to practice yoga in a safe and supportive environment, where you can feel free to move at your own pace and to focus on those aspects of yoga most beneficial for your personal circumstances.
