Complex trauma can make you feel estranged from your body.
Perhaps it feels like your body doesn’t belong to you, or that it’s an unpredictable, uncontrollable, and scary place to be. 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.
Neuroscience of the Mind-Body Connection
Safety in Relationships
Empowerment of the Survivor
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.
Groups for men and women are held separately, with a 10 participants max per group.
Language of instruction is English (Hebrew translations upon request).

My name is Rachel and as facilitator of Trauma Sensitive Yoga my expertise is in helping Israeli survivors of complex trauma develop connection with, and experience safety in their bodies. I frequently partner with mental health treatment centers, government bodies, amutot and organizations serving trauma-impacted populations and have worked with survivors from across all sectors and demographics of Israeli society.
I love what I do and have enormous respect, empathy and admiration for each person I work with. Noticing and "being in your body" in the aftermath of trauma can be painful and overwhelming; yet a safely facilitated yoga practice can help you discover a new relationship with your body which greatly contributes to healing. It is therefore my goal and mission to help you do just this, and to support you in my role in whatever way I can.
