Trauma Sensitive Yoga Course
A supportive and gentle yoga practice designed as treatment for those with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex trauma.
Presented by Anahata Giri of the Abbotsford Convent's One Heart Yoga & Meditation studio – these sessions are designed to create a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment to enable participants to explore the connection between body and breath through physical forms and movements.
This encourages participants to build a positive relationship with their body. Unlike many general yoga sessions, no physical hands-on adjustments are offered, and the focus is more on the participants’ internal experience as opposed to the external form.
Trauma sensitive yoga empowers participants to create choices for their own practice based on the felt sense of being in their body.
This practice is suitable for trauma survivors with PTSD / complex trauma and who are either in therapy or who have access to a therapist. Complete beginners or experienced are welcome.
Note: Participants can join the course as late as 15 May.
