If you are interested in following a Trauma Sensitive Yoga Class, please contact Esther for a short consultation.
We are offering one-on-one yoga and small groups.
Due to the sensitivity and respect for the students we keep our group sizes small, therefor… please contact me to find out if there is a space in the yoga class available for you. Thank you, Esther

People have a range of capacities to deal with overwhelming experience. Some people, some kids particularly, are able to disappear into a fantasy world, to dissociate, to pretend like it isn’t happening, and are able to go on with their lives. And sometimes it comes back to haunt them.

More information about Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga
Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TSY) classes are adaptable and can be taught in many different spaces. This makes Trauma Sensitive Yoga an accessible experience to integrate into settings such as an agency, centre, institution, or yoga studio.
Class sizes are small, often no larger than 8-10 people. This supports maintaining a safe environment for people to experience the session. Depending on community needs, classes may be offered on an indefinite on-going basis or they may run in specific 8-10 weeks cycles. Depending on client needs and choices, chair yoga or low impact movement on yoga mats are both possibilities, as well as a sequenced flow yoga class.
There is always is a non-touch policy, a safe environment to practice in. You always have a choice. The yoga program run by the Trauma Centre at Justice Resource Institute has helped thousands of people dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), from survivors of chronic abuse to war veterans. Research conducted by the Trauma Centre showed that the Trauma Centre Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) model significantly reduced symptoms of PTSD in clients who were considered ‘treatment resistant’.
