An interview with yoga teacher and therapist Deirdre Fay about her experience of discovering her own trauma history through yoga. Deirdre reports that yoga is always an agent of transformation, that softened her defenses to the point that her body began to relive previously forgotten memories of trauma. She reports that at first it became impossible to keep doing yoga, to even want to be in her body at all. She describes the painstaking process of learning to move very slowly, to take just tiny sips of breath as a way to manage the freak-out she felt inside. Gradually, over time Deirdre developed specific practices, that she now teaches all over the world, to help people become safely embodied. She helps people witness their own triggered states, and work with both meditation and yoga practices to help people be able to bear whatever feelings and sensation surface. She describes the teachings of yoga, as having been a lifeline to her, giving her the faith and the experience that she was not broken, but whole in herself.
