Trauma Sensitive Yoga is Yoga that is specially adapted to the needs of those who have experienced traumatic events, whether from a recent single episode or from long past childhood events. When a person experiences trauma, the memory of it is held not only in the mind but also in the body. Leaders in the field of trauma study are finding that treatment for trauma needs to include the body to be successful.

Practicing Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TSY) postures and breathing exercises helps to increase body attunement and rewire pathways in the brain, thus decreasing the frequency and severity of symptoms. Through gentle guidance with specific dialogue about movement, breath and awareness in a supported environment one can feel truly safe, present and healthy in one’s own body.
