Journalling can be a great way to go deeper and explore any new discoveries after a trauma-informed yoga session.
Journalling is not for everyone and there's no pressure to do this work outside of your trauma-informed yoga sessions.
If you do feel inspired to write, here are some journal prompts that may help to work as a guide. (Or if you don't relate to any of these questions, just put pen to paper and go with the flow)
From your trauma-informed yoga session...
What parts of the body did you connect (feel, sense, become aware of) with most?
Can you label any of these feelings/sensations? For example, heat, coolness, tingling, bubbling, sickness, tiredness.
Did any emotions arise that were connected to (or separate from) these feelings/sensations?
At any point(s) did you feel good? If so, describe in more detail
At any point(s) did these feelings/sensations become overwhelming? If so, describe in more detail
At any point(s) did you notice you became disassociated? If so, describe in more detail
At any point(s) did you experience any visual flashbacks (these can be trauma or non-trauma related)? If so, describe in more detail
At any point(s) did you choose to come out of an exercise early or ask to make a change? If so, describe how it felt to speak out and make these decisions.
How did it feel to connect to your breathing? What feelings/sensations/emotions (if any) arose?
How did you feel before the session and after the session?
Since your last session(s) have you noticed any changes to your mood, energy, concentration, sleep, or attention?
