Here for Savasana with Special Guest Lockey Maisonneuve author of “A Girl Raised By Wolves”

February 28, 2019

Welcome to Here for Savasana's second podcast episode. Our special guest today is Lockey Maisonneuve author of "A Girl Raised By Wolves."

Lockey Maisonneuve guides yoga and meditation classes for incarcerated men, folks in drug and alcohol recovery, mental health patients and students in inner-city schools.

Lockey's unique experiences give her credibility to share mindfulness programs in these marginalized communities.

As you read her memoir, A Girl Raised by Wolves, you will learn that she was neglected, abused and sold into sex trafficking by her father. She was made to feel worthless and invisible by the very people who brought her into this world.

Lockey knows from first-hand experience that healing trauma is not a one-and-done event. In her classes and workshops, Maisonneuve incorporates her own experiences with managing flashbacks, triggers, anxiety and rage as well as her jersey girl sarcasm and wry sense of humor to connect with her participants. She is committed to supporting people in their own healing journey.
