Event Description: 

Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an empirically validated, adjunctive clinical treatment for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. Developed at the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, TSY has foundations in Trauma Theory, Attachment Theory, and Neuroscience as well as Hatha Yoga practice with an emphasis on body-based yoga forms and breathing practices.

How are Trauma-Sensitive Yoga classes different than other types of yoga classes?

  • The teacher has experience and extensive training in Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga practices.
  • TCTSY helps to manage the symptoms of anxiety, acute stress, PTSD and increases the capacity for healing, well being, and health.
  • There are gender specific classes with no physical hands-on adjustments.
  • Attention will be paid to the potential for feelings of vulnerability in certain yoga postures.
  • The teacher will continually offer options, allowing students to practice making empowered choices, opting in or out of any portion of the class at any time.
  • The class offers students the opportunity to rebuild a connection with oneself and to help them feel safe in their bodies again.
  • Research has shown that TCTSY has many evidence-based benefits for those who have experienced trauma.
