Reaching Out With Yoga

Led by the BC Society of Transition Houses, this project delivered and evaluated a trauma-informed yoga program in shelters and transition houses in communities across British Columbia to improve the physical and mental health of women and children recovering from family violence. Staff were trained to use yoga techniques in their professional practice, and in their self-care to address vicarious trauma.
