Intimacy with the Body: Energy Medicine Yoga

Lauren speaks with Tami about the effectiveness of combining energy medicine techniques with yoga, how these practices can release trauma, and on-the-spot techniques to calm the fight-or-flight response. I've learned to do similar sorts of release work for myself with the combination of practices I utilize (and now that I've been following this sort of work for many years).
