Trauma Informed Movement and Self-Care

Updated: Dec 2, 2021

Dr. Elisa Haransky Beck interviews Tami Lysher for this week's podcast episode on Journey Through Health and Wellness.

How does trauma impact your health and ability to move?

Tami Lysher tackles this question by integrating her 30 years in the early childhood development field with her work in pilates. In her conversation with Dr. Elisa Haransky Beck, she discusses living in Flint, Michigan, and how their water crisis has affected children's development. She offers the audience her daily practice and encourages listeners to find their own practice for making time for themselves (and disconnecting from your phone). Any moment can be meditative if you set an intention for it!

The Health and Wellness working group puts out a new podcast every Thursday, revolving around holistic and natural health. To listen to this podcast from Reimagine TCWAC’s ‘Journey Through Health and Wellness’ series, click on the following link:
