What is trauma sensitive yoga?
Trauma sensitive and/or trauma informed classes are based on polyvagal theory and are sequenced in a way the takes our mind and bodies gently in to our flight/fight response system and back in to the rest recover or Social Engagement System. We make this transition several times during the class which helps us maintain an effective stress response system and proficient window of tolerance.
A trauma informed class is aware of the physiological and psychological effects of trauma and prolonged stress to our minds and bodies. We understand triggers and make every effort to mitigate them during instruction.
We are always in the present moment and aware of our breath and our body.
