Trauma~Sensitive Yoga

Trauma-sensitive yoga (TCTSY) is provided either individually or in small groups. TCTSY is NOT a form of psychotherapy although it is an evidence-based intervention developed through an understanding of complex PTSD. TCTSY supports a person to rebuild a sense of connection to their body and sense of self.
