CF - TRAUMA SENSITIVE YOGA - Facebook Event.png


Trauma informed yoga is designed to help trauma survivors establish presence and find a sense of grounding that can help connect mind and body in a way that can feel secure. This form of yoga may include self-regulation strategies to increase body awareness in a safe and controlled way, which can promote feelings of physical, emotional, and psychological safety and to address nervous system dysregulation, dissociation, and feelings of disconnection from the body or surroundings, which are common after experiencing trauma.

Certified Trauma Sensitive Yoga Instructors Carolyn Thomas and Mike Johson will guide and support you through your practice, focusing on breathing techniques that connect the body with the breath.
