About the Event

Trauma is an emotional or physical response to one or more harmful or life-threatening events or circumstances with lasting adverse effects on your mental and physical well-being. Trauma doesn’t just affect the mind — it can also be held in the body.

This means that mind-body practices like yoga can be challenging, and even harmful, for those who have endured any form of trauma.

Trauma-sensitive yoga takes an approach to the practice that addresses the specific needs and symptoms of trauma survivors.

  • It can increase body awareness in a safe and controlled way, which can promote feelings of physical, emotional, and psychological safety
  • Can address nervous system dysregulation and feelings of disconnection from the body or surroundings, which are common after experiencing trauma

Trauma-Yoga is sensitive yoga that is less about how poses are executed and more about the feeling of embodiment (being within your body) within a pose. Establishing presence and finding a sense of grounding can help you connect to your mind and body in a way that feels secure.

As you are guided through a supportive experience, you may observe sensations and emotions that arise without feeling triggered or overwhelmed.

In this class, we will be exploring breathing techniques & yoga poses while noticing the sensations and feelings in our bodies. We focus on self-love, support and kindness; as well as empowerment in the most kind and loving way possible. If you have experienced trauma of any kind as a child or adult, please join us.
