**Trauma Sensitive Yoga Series

**Trauma Sensitive Yoga Series

Trauma sensitive yoga is a thoughtfully curated practice where you are invited to move, breathe, and connect to your body while moving through a gentle mat-based yoga practice.

In this non-judgmental practice space, you are welcome to explore movements at the pace of your choice. There is never any pressure to achieve the “correct alignment” as we move through various asanas or yoga forms. Rather, you will always be offered choices for ways you might engage with each form, and you’ll be offered many gentle reminders that there is no way to do this practice wrong. Everything is always optional, and taking breaks, skipping things, and doing things your way is warmly welcome.

As we practice tuning into our present-moment, body-based experience, the possibility emerges for making the movement choices that truly feel best or right to you. In this way, each of becomes the ultimate authority and expert of our own personal practice.

Although this practice is designed with trauma in mind, we don’t talk about trauma during these sessions. Rather, this space is all about exploring what it’s like to move, sense, and have agency over our bodies. You always get to be fully in control of your own practice  (there are no hands on assists).

You do not need any previous yoga experience to take part, nor do you need to consider yourself flexible.

The format for this class is based on the modality of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY). TCTSY is an evidence-based adjunctive treatment designed especially for complex trauma which you can read more about here.
