Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga

What is Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga?

Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is a body-based practice developed by David Emerson and his team at the Center for Trauma and Embodiment in Massachusetts, USA. Supported by empirical evidence, it is found to be effective in supporting the healing of complex trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its accompanying effects. TCTSY is grounded in Yoga philosophy and research in trauma, attachment and neuroscience.

In a Trauma Sensitive Yoga session, we focus on how Yoga and movement make us feel on the inside, not what our Yoga practice looks like from the outside. You are invited to be in charge of your movement. You are welcome to move in ways that feel useful for your body in the present moment. We do not use physical assists.
