The Trauma Center-Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) Foundational Training is a professional training designed for yoga teachers, mental health care professionals, health care providers, educators, and those who are interested in developing their understanding of the complexities of systemic and interpersonal trauma, the body-mind connection through exploring the impacts on one’s nervous system and physiology, and how a trauma sensitive movement and breath practice could support healing.

Training Details:

This anti-oppressive approach to healing supports recovery from individual and collective long-term trauma through emphasis on the ancient practice of yoga with considerations of language, movement, present moment experiences, and choice.

This training provides an understanding of how systemic oppression and interpersonal trauma perpetuate harm, impacting one’s brain, body and relationships. Participants will experience how TCTSY facilitates peace building from within, learning and developing their capacity to integrate a trauma-informed lens into diverse contexts through understanding the role power and oppression play within complex trauma, attachment theory, and the neuroscience underpinning the TCTSY methodology.

TCTSY is an evidence-based adjunct treatment for Complex-PTSD, Complex Trauma and Developmental Trauma grounded in the western medical model with robust research demonstrating successful outcomes. This is the only yoga-based technique endorsed by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA) in the United States. It was developed in collaboration with the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts starting in 2003 and is the foundational program with the Center for Trauma and Embodiment with the Justice Resource Institute.

This training is the pre-requisite required to apply for the 300-hr TCTSY Certification Program with the Trauma Center. In addition, it is also eligible for CEU's with Yoga Alliance (YA), Canadian Yoga Alliance (CYA), and International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).

"This training teaches beyond what you can use on the mat. This is a lens that recognizes that we don’t all start on the same ground, nor do we experience the world in the same way. The act of recognizing difference is the beginning of an empathetic awareness. First, a foundational understanding of trauma and how trauma is held in our physiology, then how engaged movement can help empower a person to move through the held traumatic responses and find their way to improved health. All accompanied with some incredible personal stories of experiences with students finding freedom through finding themselves. All of this came to us from the Zoomverse with great timing for breaks, movement, and a safe container to learn within." 2020 Online Training Participant
