In this innovative title, celebrated trainer and trauma practitioner Laura Khoudari brings a fresh approach to healing after trauma, using strength training as an embodied movement practice. Compassionate, witty, and fastidiously researched, Khoudari's debut, Lifting Heavy Things, is a breakthrough title that will empower and inspire you to develop resilience and build emotional and physical strength through working out with weights, while mindful of the ways that trauma can compromise the wellbeing of the mind and body. In Lifting Heavy Things, you'll learn about: managing chronic pain; creating the conditions for training and healing; understanding how trauma shows up in daily life; using embodied movement practices (beyond yoga) as a tool to comfortably re-inhabit the body; navigating interpersonal relationships during and after the healing process; why you don't have to tell your trauma story (to everyone); and thriving with and moving beyond trauma. With humor, tenderness, and grit, Lifting Heavy Things takes listeners on a journey of personal revelation and integration, helping them to lighten their emotional burden and build deep inner strength to lift all of the heavy things that life may bring with greater ease.
