Trauma Sensitive Yoga: Group Classes
Complex trauma can make you feel estranged from your body.
It can feel like your body doesn’t belong to you, or that it’s an unpredictable, uncontrollable, and scary place. Just like our hearts and minds, our bodies need time and attention in order to heal and recover.
This 8-week online therapeutic group practice series is for survivors of complex trauma who are ready to learn about, experience and integrate Trauma Sensitive Yoga into their healing journey. This practice series is intended to empower you with practical tools and knowledge that support a greater, more integrated and peaceful connection with your body.
Trauma Center, Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is a modified style of yoga that presents psychologically safe opportunities for you to experience, interact with, and notice your body. Over the course of 8 weeks (one group practice per week), we focus on the central therapeutic themes of Trauma Sensitive Yoga so that you can individually adapt and use it within your healing journey. Each week’s discussion will be followed by a mat-based practice focusing on the week’s theme.
Safety in Relationships
Neuroscience of the Mind-Body Connection
Empowerment of the Survivor
Our space is safe and sacred
The creation of safety is prioritized, so you are comfortable and able to engage with your body however is appropriate for you. Every topic is discussed in general terms to avoid unnecessary triggering information. While intended to be therapeutic, this is not group therapy; we therefore do not share information or details of any traumatic experience. Everything is conducted with great care and sensitivity towards maintaining a safe space, enabling you to safely explore the connection you have with your body. As a facilitator, I receive clinical supervision.
