“Traumatized people chronically feel unsafe inside their bodies: The past is alive in the form of gnawing interior discomfort. Their bodies are constantly bombarded by visceral warning signs, and, in an attempt to control these processes, they often become expert at ignoring their gut feelings and in numbing awareness of what is played out inside. They learn to hide from their selves.” (p.97)”
― Bessel A. van der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma
Trauma Sensitive Yoga is a well researched and widely practiced method of treatment, helping people overcome the negative effects of trauma by gently helping them get familiar with sensations in their body and empowering them to make choices.
TSY is intended as a collaborative supplement to psychotherapy. There is no psychotherapist present during classes, and you are not required to tell your story. The beauty of this work is in the non-verbal, present body experience, which goes beyond words. If you are in need of psychotherapy, please contact us at: email@example.com
Classes are offered as a six-week series, and commitment toward your progress is encouraged. No rescheduling or make-up classes are available, and no refunds will be issued for missed classes. If TSY sounds like a good fit for you, please contact Stacey Shulman at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (404) 202-3929.
