Community Group “Attachment and Trauma Part 1”

Welcome to Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Nederland’s Community Group!

We welcome you to an online space where we can come together, learn about different topics that have to do with the effects of trauma, and, if you feel comfortable, share a little bit about your own experience with the topic. In the past, we’ve explored topics such as; trauma and your brain, trauma and memory, trauma and self-care, and trauma and your gut. The next Community Group will take place on Thursday the 2nd of June from 19.00 – 20.00  Central European Summer Time (CEST)

What is a Community Group?

During the one-hour LIVE-ONLINE Community Group, we will engage in a short Trauma-Sensitive Yoga practice, introduce a topic to you (introduced by a speaker), and open the group for a discussion, if this is useful to you. You are by no means obligated to share. Sometimes, depending on the topic, there will be a reflective exercise instead of a short Trauma-Sensitive Yoga practice.

We organize a Community Group once a month, to come together and to let you know that you are not alone on this journey. During the trauma-sensitive yoga online yogalessons, there isn’t much time to discuss or perhaps learn about trauma and the body. This is what we prioritize during Community Group. It isn’t a group therapy session, simply a place to come together, conne,ct and potentially learn.

Every Community Group we have a different speaker introducing a different topic, and every Community Group we will have a different Co-Host, this month:

SpeakerEsther van der Sande

Co-Host – Eva Reitsma

“Attachment and Trauma Part 1”

During this Community Group you will explore your relationship with your family and their response to you as a child, looking at the unwritten or written “rules”. After this you will explore what the effects are on your friendships, self-esteem, love relationships now. Relationships are complex and during this Community Group you will learn to get to know the relationship you have with yourself through the relationship you have/had with your family.

This Community Group session will help you if: 

You’re wondering what the connection between your relationships with the people you love and how your family responded to you as a child.

What will you learn:

  • What makes it so difficult to be myself around my family
  • What are the effects of my relationships with my loved ones as a child in my everyday life now

What do you need:

Pen and paper.
