This book presents the successful intervention known as Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TSY), an evidence-based program for traumatized clients that helps them to reconnect to their bodies in a safe, deliberate way. Unlike traditional, mat-based yoga, TSY can be practiced without one, in a therapistâ€™s chair or on a couch. As Emerson carefully explains, the therapist guides the client to become accustomed to feeling something in the bodyâ€”feet on the ground or a muscle contractingâ€”in the present moment, choosing what to do about it in real time, and taking effective action. With over 30 photographs depicting the suggested yoga forms and a final chapter that presents a portfolio of step-by-step yoga practices to use with your clients, this practical book makes yoga therapy for trauma survivors accessible to all clinicians.
