Sensory-Enhanced Yoga® is closely informed by the highly successful treatment protocol used with deployed military personnel in Kirkuk, Iraq, which Lynn co-developed; her experience teaching veterans in her local community; as well as her many years of experience as a sensory integration certified occupational therapist and registered yoga instructor.
The program applies techniques from sensory-based OT practices as well as recent findings from the fields of neurobiology and trauma psychology to address the core symptoms of PTSD. Participants are also taught how to create a “safe container” for students, both physically and psychologically, in which healing can occur.
