Foundational Training in Trauma Center-Trauma Sensitive Yoga 

 

April 25 and May 23  2021

11am-7pm 

This training is a professional training designed for yoga teachers, social workers, educators, mental health professionals, and other service providers interested in deepening their understanding of the complexities of systemic and interpersonal trauma, the impact of complex trauma on the nervous system and how a trauma informed yoga practice can assist in integrating healing. This training emphasizes core concepts that inform using movement and breath through the ancient practice of yoga as a tool to aid in healing from trauma. Individuals completing this training will learn how existing in systems of oppression creates and perpetuates trauma, the impact of long term trauma on the brain, body, and relationships, and how to develop a trauma-informed lens based on these understandings.

 

TCTSY is an evidence-based adjunctive treatment for complex trauma and treatment-resistant Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and was the first yoga practice to be listed on the SAMSHA’s US-based directory of evidence-based practices. It was developed in collaboration with the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts and is the foundational program of the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at the Justice Resource Institute. This body-based practice based on sound research is utilized with children, youth, and adults throughout the United States and in dozens of countries around the world. This 20-hour training qualifies as the prerequisite for the 300-hour Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga certification program.

You do not need to be a yoga teacher or a licensed professional to attend this training. Although this training is conducted professionally through a trauma-informed lens with compassion and care to the content discussed, developing skills and building collective resilience may be potentially draining or triggering for some. Please be prepared with a self-care plan and network of support for our weekend together.  

*A portion of your weekend training fee will go into a scholarship fund supporting people who have experienced oppression and trauma to complete the 300-hour certification program. Thank you for your support!
