Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TSY) is a practice focused on noticing our bodies, breath and thoughts. We will move through a series of postures to help the participant experience an empowering mind-body-soul connection. Both weaving of the Word (scripture) and a drishti (gaze) fixed on Jesus is part of the process if the participant desires. However, we can always have intentions that focus on words/concepts: hope, love, security, worth, gratitude.
You are the driver of your own practice in Trauma-Sensitive. I will guide and suggest but not command movements. Every posture is your choice and modifications will be given. Think of TSY as an anchor that allows you to swim and then come back to a place of security (the anchor posture of comfort to you) or challenge/explore by swimming to another posture.
Currently, I'm offering recurring, secular TSY practices at NuPower Yoga -- all are welcome to join.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
— Hebrews 4:12
