Happy Hour Yoga at Hearthside Club @ Hearthside Club
Dec 8 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Trauma Sensitive Yoga – Series 2 @ Yoga Roots
Dec 8 @ 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm

Trauma Sensitive Yoga, or TSY, is different from a traditional yoga practice in that it encourages awareness and positive regard for the body through gentle movement and simple breathing exercises. These classes are for people of all shapes and sizes who are currently working with a therapist on issues related to PTSD and/or trauma. No prior yoga experience is necessary to participate.

TSY is not yoga therapy or a substitute for therapy, and is not led by a clinically trained therapist. It is a body-based experience, facilitated by a certified yoga teacher, that can support the important work being done in therapy sessions. TSY can be especially helpful for anyone who feels stuck in their talk therapy process.

For more information or to sign up for class, please email Stacey at TSYAtlanta(at)gmail(dot)com.
