Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TSY)
Yoga nidra or yogic sleep is a state of consciousness, between waking and sleeping. While the you rest comfortably this systematic meditation aims at leaving you with a sense of wholeness. It is a complete relaxation of the body, while the mind stays awake and active. Yoga nidra helps to relieve stress, anxiety and can, if used correctly, assist recovery from post-traumatic stress disorders. It is among the deepest possible conditions of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness.
The trauma sensitive yoga methodology is based on central components of the hatha style of yoga, where participants engage in a series of physical forms and movements. Elements of standard hatha yoga are modified to maximize experiences of empowerment and to cultivate a more positive relationship to one's body. Unlike many yoga classes, trauma sensitive yoga does not use physical hands-on adjustments to influence a participant's physical form. Rather, it presents opportunities for participants to be in charge of themselves by focusing on the felt sense of the body to inform choice-making. This allows participants to restore their connection of mind and body and cultivate a sense of agency that is often compromised as a result of trauma.
