trauma sensitive yoga courses

Sam Voolstra facilitates regular trauma sensitive yoga courses. No previous experience with yoga is necessary to join a course.

Yoga can help you reclaim or build a relationship with your body, feelings and emotions.

Practicing yoga forms might empower you, in a safe way, to notice what you feel in your body. Yoga might then support you to practice making choices about what to do with your body based on what you feel.

Since trauma is experienced in the body, practicing yoga might not always be easy if you are a trauma survivor. The course facilitator is there after classes to answer questions, but during the classes we do not talk about individual experiences.

Therefore it is important that you have support in place, in the form of therapy, counselling or from family and/or friends to share what might come up for you while practicing yoga.
