Trauma Sensitive Yoga


with Kelcy McNamara

Calendar May 2, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

An Introduction

Are you interested in learning about trauma and how a specifically-designed yoga program may support your healing? Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TSY), a SAMSHA-approved clinical treatment, is for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. Through discussion, shared information and experiential practices, students will develop an awareness of what interoception is and participate in a full TSY class. Anyone can benefit from this program, including yoga students and teachers, therapists and clinicians. This session is solely information on TSY and is not intended as an intervention for those who have experienced trauma. Talking about trauma, even in the context of an informational, can be triggering. No experience necessary. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat.

Kelcy McNamara is a registered yoga teacher and certified through the Boston Trauma Center to facilitate yoga for trauma treatment. She teaches group and private sessions and offers workshops for yoga teachers and clinicians.
