Trauma-Sensitive Yoga for Women
Tuesdays, 1/17/2017 - 2/7/2017 6:00 PM-7:00 PM
Union Street Yoga, *New Location* 25 Union St. 3rd Fl., 25 Union Street, 3rd Fl., Worcester, MA - $50. for series
This healing Trauma-Sensitive yoga class series is for any woman who has experienced trauma or any of the following: Anxiety, Depression, Stress, PTSD, and Grief.

The objectives of Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TSY) classes are to help participants feel comfortable in their bodies, to learn self-regulation skills, and to improve their ability to direct attention away from ruminative thought processes. Trauma-sensitive yoga is a way for us to safely experiment with having a body. Through yoga we can experiment with: Breathing, Moving, Strengthening, Stretching, and Resting.

The classes are set up so that students are in control over what they are doing with their body at all times and the teacher is there to provide safe, professional guidance to help facilitate healing.

This is a gentle yoga class and no yoga experience is necessary.
