Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Available in Sandy & Salt Lake, UT
What is Trauma-Sensitive Yoga?
Trauma-sensitive yoga (TSY) was introduced to me through the work of David Emerson, author of Trauma-Sensitive Yoga in Therapy: Bringing the Body into Treatment. He says, “In TSY, we offer our clients the opportunity to do something different, namely, instead of meaning making in our head, we are after having an experience in our body.”
TSY offers a healing experience for trauma survivors and is a rich counterpart to therapy and other forms of trauma treatment. It can be facilitated in individual sessions or small groups. Trauma is stored in the body as well as the mind, and TSY can help to release the hold it has on your life…allowing you to feel grounded and whole and free, as we are all meant to feel.
You do not need any special knowledge, skills, or experience in order to benefit from the practice of TSY. You do not need any background with yoga, and you don’t have to have certain clothes or supplies. You can be any age, any body type, any gender, any ethnicity, any ANYTHING. You only need a willingness—which you have already shown by being here right now.
