what is trauma sensitive yoga?
All Kendra's classes are trauma-sensitive. Trauma-sensitive yoga practice offers a safe and sensitive space for you to learn self-regulation and self-awareness skills that build sustainable resilience. It is about learning to feel safe and at home in your body by practicing making choices. Anxiety and depression, are often the result of unresolved trauma.
There are 4 key themes;
Practice making choices
Present Moment Experience
Taking Effective Action
Recognize that you are the expert of your body and experiences.
Experience safety and comfort as foundations of your practice.
Focus on developing interoception, an experience of a 'felt sense'.
Recognition that offering choices empower you to choose what feels right for your body at any moment.
Minimization of triggers such as touch, lighting, oils or incense, and Sanskrit language.
Recognize that everyone in the class has suffered some form of trauma.
Acknowledgment that body shapes and yoga props might make you feel vulnerable.
Experience invitational language allowing you more self-agency.
Experience the use of rhythms to offer grounding and a feeling of safety.
Practicing present moment awareness.
Recognize that the use of touch is with permission and minimized, with the intention to increase interoception not force your body into an ideal shape.
