Trauma Informed Yoga Course
Our new 5-week Trauma Informed Yoga course support participants with a history of trauma and/or symptoms of anxiety, depression, grief, to experience a sense of agency and control over their bodies.
Type of Event
Trauma is stored in the body. After a traumatic experience, the nervous system can respond to triggering situations as though the traumatic experience is happening all over again. This can lead to a sense of disconnection from the body in order to cope. Yoga can offer a potent way to befriend, and regain a sense of safety in, your body. Yoga offers an empowering path towards healing; it can help you reclaim a sense of steadiness and ease.
Facilitated by clinical psychologists Jess Grunberg, who has experience in supporting clients with a history of trauma across both the private and public sector, these small classes will have a maximum of 10 participants and offer a safe, supportive space for participants to develop psychological skills whilst practicing yoga. Participants in our Trauma Informed Yoga course will not be expected to discuss their histories and those under a GP Mental Health Care are able to claim a Medicare rebate. A useful adjunct to individual psychotherapy, this course is informed by the internationally recognised best practice principles of Trauma Centre Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY).
