What is Trauma-Sensitive Yoga?
Trauma-sensitive yoga is a way of offering yoga to those living with the effects of trauma. Trauma survivors often live with a range of symptoms that cause heightened and sometimes very distressing feelings in the body to arise. Strong sensations and emotions arise and can be extremely hard to regulate. Trauma-sensitive yoga can greatly alleviate and soothe the symptoms associated with trauma and psychological and emotional distress. Trauma-sensitive yoga is a gentle, safe, non-invasive approach to create feelings of safety, trust and emotional regulation.
