About this event

This science-based somatic method integrates many carefully researched and proven techniques in a very specific yoga sequence that inspires a sense of safety and connection. It is easily adapted for all levels, ages, and capabilities. It can be done on a mat or chair at the level that is comfortable for you or you may simply observe and listen.

Trauma Recovery Yoga is known to help with insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks, suicidal thoughts, hypervigilance, flashbacks, and other effects of trauma being held in the body. It is designed to rebalance the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems and enhance the overall feeling of well-being.

Online sessions are offered with Brenda Hershey for trauma survivors throughout Nevada, the Route 91 community, and emergency responders in Clark County who have been approved for this no-cost integrative service through the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. Brenda is a trauma-informed humanitarian and author of Your Time to Shine: A Personal Strategic Planning Workbook. She is currently leading a team on a livelihoods project, helping Syrian refugees start small businesses in Iraqi-Kurdistan. She is also teaching TRY to displaced women and children in the region and building TRY’s global presence.

*Prior approval is required to participate. Requests can be submitted through the Resiliency Center's website or by calling 702-455-2433. Visit to learn more about other services available, such as music therapy and meditation/mindfulness.
