Trauma Informed Empowerment Protocol

We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Combat Sexual Assault to

execute their Empowerment Protocol.  

Combat Sexual Assault provides services to Military members and Veterans

who have experienced retaliation for reporting the assault.  

We are proud to be added to their team and provide healing resources to help their clients rediscover their power.   

A Trauma Informed Space

Here are some other ways you know SYCC is a trauma informed space:

  • Either there are no physical adjustments or permission to be adjusted is asked for

  • There is low to no stimulation, meaning diffusers are modified, there aren't candles, the lights create a soft, but lit atmosphere, if there is music it is soothing and relaxing. 

  • The instructors use a collected, calm voice. They do not assert themselves beyond queuing the asana, they make you feel safe and supported. 

  • The instructor teaches from the mat giving adequate anatomical cues and letting the student follow their lead. They also give plenty of options for all body types, as well as, use invitational language


Sanford Yoga & Community Center is a safe space where you can come, heal, breathe, and be free, in order to experience this present moment outside of the trauma that causes suffering.

Their mission is to empower survivors of Military Sexual Trauma (MST) by helping them find their voice and overcome barriers to obtaining justice, all while disrupting the cultural stigma surrounding the disclosures of these crimes. 

We hope that you join us.  We are only stronger together.
