ACE’s (adverse childhood events) are proven to play a big part in our overall health and wellbeing. As adults too, we often have to face and overcome traumatic events that can shape our entire lives. Unfortunately, this is quite often simply part of life. We have to find forgiveness, heal and move on and try not to let that trauma define us. 

Yoga has been proven to be extremely beneficial in the reduction of trauma-related symptoms1 and can help us to find meaningful release in movement and conscious breathing. 

Adio’s hub features a wide range of yoga and meditation resources, from free to participate in classes for all ages and levels of experience and fitness, to breathing workshops to help those who are new to the power of meditation and tips for how to become more mindful in our day to day lives. 

Our brain function and mental health zone is packed full of articles and webinars on how to tackle trauma. We even have a toolkit that can help you to better understand the science behind trauma and the many different approaches to tackle it.
