trauma informed yoga

I offer a yoga practice of trauma informed yoga (also called trauma sensitive yoga) to accompany victims of physical/sexual/psychological abuse who suffer from symptoms of post-traumatic stress such as : physical/emotional insecurity, loss of reference points, loss of confidence and self-esteem, fear, anxiety, dissociation, hypervigilance, physical pain, chronic fatigue…

Trauma informed yoga is a set of practices that allow you to find safety in your body/mind, reconnect with your body, calm your mind, release repressed emotions anchored in your body, regulate your emotions, gain confidence… :

  • gentle yoga with an inviting language without any connotation of constraint
  • relaxation techniques for the nervous system
  • visualization of a place where one feels safe
  • somatic practices such as guided free movement
  • guided meditation…

No yoga experience is required. The practices are gentle and suitable for all ages and physical conditions. It is possible to practice on a chair for people who lack mobility. The goal is to provide tools that can be experienced with support in a safe place and then used in daily life. TSY empowers you to find your own ressources.

The practice of trauma-informed yoga in combination with counselling will address the somatic aspects of trauma:

  • developing the ability to stay present by tolerating the inner experience
  • reconnecting with the body by getting back in touch with physical sensations
  • activate the parasympathetic nervous system responsible for physical and mental relaxation
  • feeling and learning to trust one’s sensations
  • learn to regulate one’s emotions and be less afraid of them
  • gain access to one’s intuition
  • rediscover the desire to take care of oneself and have the tools to do so
