Jessa Walters has completed the 300-hour Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) certification with David Emerson through the Center for Trauma and Embodiment in Boston. Jessa began teaching TCTSY in 2013 as part of a study through the University of Minnesota and the Domestic Abuse Project researching TCTSY as a viable clinical treatment for complex trauma.

TRAUMA–SENSITIVE YOGA PRIVATE SESSIONS
I offer one-on-one or small group trauma-sensitive yoga sessions via Zoom or phone.
A session can be anywhere from 30-60 minutes. My rate is $65 for 30 mins and $125 for an hour. A sliding scale option is available.
If you would like a recording of your yoga session, you are welcome to record on your end or I can record the audio for you. At the beginning of our time together, there is the option for a brief check in, if desired. Then we can move into the yoga practice leaving several minutes at the end for bringing closure to the experience. It is recommended to be actively seeing a therapist or counselor for support in tandem with the trauma-sensitive yoga sessions.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions and/or would like to set up a trauma-sensitive yoga session: email@example.com
“I felt empowered to choose what felt good for me in my body. At times I just did my own thing, following what my body and mind needed in the moment.“
“The class was just what I needed, and I loved all the choices given. I enjoyed the freedom of staying in poses longer or trying different ones to see which best suited me.”
