Trauma Sensitive Yoga
Overcoming Trauma Through Yoga
What is Trauma Sensitive Yoga?
Trauma Centre Trauma Sensitive Yoga works in conjunction with conventional clinical therapies to support healing by gently assisting people who experienced trauma to reconnect with their bodies in a safe supportive environment. This unique yoga therapy is bringing body into the trauma treatment and provides everyone the opportunity to feel safer, stronger and more comfortable in their own body.

Trauma Sensitive Yoga Private Sessions
