Why Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Matters
Have you ever collapsed into tears in a yoga class, or felt your heart beat out of your chest for no apparent reason?
This is common for anyone who has trauma held in their body. While a natural part of any embodied practice, in the group setting of a yoga class, there is rarely the privacy, safety or time to stay with, learn from and integrate these kinds of experiences.
Our Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Workshop is built to contain and explore these kind of experiences in a safe and supported atmosphere. In order to provide the support necessary, every class is facilitated by both a yoga teacher and a psychotherapist, both of whom are experienced and trained trauma-informed practitioners.
Yoga as Healing Practice
Trauma limits both the ability and the desire to feel sensation in the body. To heal from trauma, we must expand our ability to feel.
A Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Workshop allows one to naturally encounter the feelings of tension and stretch, twist and reach, discomfort and release, in a safe and nurturing atmosphere.
Our trauma-informed yoga instructor and psychotherapist co-facilitators have the skills to lead people gently into this healing experience. By allowing rather than restricting feeling, trauma-sensitive yoga offers an invitation to become more comfortable in your body and to feel more fully human and present in the world.
