Alexi Neal teaches embodied mindfulness as a Certified Yoga Therapist through Phoenix Rising. She believes that traumatic patterns is what is keeping us from trusting ourselves to feel safe to be vulnerable and open with others and that holds us back in relationships. Alexi and her husband Chaz operate the Neal Center for counseling and yoga therapy in Wheat Ridge, Co.
Their mission is to support trauma survivors in transforming their experiences from pain to power through the use of yoga and mindfulness-based therapies.
My biggest takeaways from our conversation were….
One must get to their “edge” while performing yoga therapy to FEEL the change they are seeking.
Poly-vagal theory works great for trauma survivors because they can finally understand that their responses to their environment aren’t conscious.
