Trauma Sensitive Yoga
Free for McGill members, these sessions are designed as an alternative to traditional yoga practices. Trauma Sensitive Yoga has foundations in trauma theory, attachment theory and Hatha Yoga practice, with an emphasis on body-based yoga forms and breathing practices.
The classes will be guided by Jen Wende, a certified yoga therapist with over 1000 hours of alignment-based training. She specializes in creating classes which explore new pathways for building distress tolerance, resilience, autonomy and growth of the participants. Through yoga asana and meditation, participants will be encouraged to move at an easeful pace for self-observation of their bodies, minds and breath.

We are proud to announce that the OSVRSE yoga workshop has been certified as a Bronze McGill Sustainable Event by the McGill Office of Sustainability. To achieve this certification, we implemented actions such as including voices of diverse populations in our event’s content, ensuring that the event location was as free from physical barriers as possible, and set community ground rules (e.g., asking questions, sharing pronouns, sharing access needs).
