Trauma Sensitive Yoga Course
Trauma Sensitive Yoga is a yoga practice designed as treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex trauma.
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 based on Hatha Yoga, with the opportunity of building 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 participant's 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.
The practice is based on Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga developed at the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts.
This practice is suitable for trauma survivors with PTSD/ Complex Trauma and who are either in therapy or who have access to a therapist. It is suitable for complete beginners or experienced students.These courses are gender inclusive, if you feel uncomfortable attending a course with a mixed group please do get in touch so that we can discuss your options.
