20 hour (IN PERSON) TCTSY Foundational Training – Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga
Nov 8, 2024 - Nov 10, 2024

This 20-hour Foundational Training from the Center for Trauma and Embodiment (Brookline, MA) introduces attendees to the core concepts and applications of TCTSY. It offers specific tools to facilitate trauma-sensitive movement through hatha yoga and breathwork in a unique way informed by robust research and decades of work with survivors. This training supports yoga teachers and therapists to make their work more trauma-informed, and supports those working in the mental health field to bring the body into treatment, a vital part of healing complex trauma, developmental trauma and chronic PTSD. Open to anyone looking to deepen their understanding of complex, intersectional trauma, there are no pre-requisites to attend.

TCTSY has foundations in trauma theory, attachment theory, neuroscience, and hatha yoga. It supports participants to cultivate embodied healing and a sense of agency so often compromised by complex trauma. In2017, TCTSY became the first dedicated yoga program listed as an evidence-based program (EBP) for the treatment of psychological trauma.
