Trauma Sensitive Yoga of Ames

Early childhood trauma changes the way we relate to and think about our physical body. Trauma Sensitive Yoga of Ames is committed to helping trauma survivors safely re-connect to their body so that they may more whole-heartedly engage in their life.

Developed at the Center for Trauma and Embodiment, Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is a scientifically proven treatment for PTSD and complex trauma.  Anyone is welcome regardless of physical ability, gender identity, race, religion and ethnicity.

The goals of Trauma Sensitive Yoga are:

  • Practice making choices
  • Being in our body
  • Finding rhythms
  • Taking effective action

We use yoga as a way to notice sensations in our body and to practice making choices that are useful to us.

No prior experience is necessary.
