This professional training is designed for social workers, activists, mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, and other health care professionals who are looking to deepen their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex, intersectional trauma.

Additionally, it is designed to support those professionals in expanding their current practice, to incorporate the Evidence Based Practice of Trauma Center-Trauma Sensitive Yoga; through learning how to integrate healing the impacts of complex trauma on the nervous system, via trauma sensitive movement and breath.

Emphasis is placed on how the core components of the practice and process of trauma sensitive yoga, are also the building blocks to any anti-oppressive & trauma sensitive work. The training will provide specific tools to support participants to facilitate trauma sensitive movement and breath practices that are vital to the healing process of complex trauma (a.k.a. the many faces of systemic oppression) in personal, professional, community-based or system-wide relationships.

Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an evidence-based adjunctive treatment for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). TCTSY is the only yoga-based practice endorsed by SAMSHA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs & Practices.

This 20-hour training (16 hrs in person, 4 hrs self-study) is based on sound research from the Trauma Center, of the Justice Resource Institute in Boston, MA.

This weekend training qualifies as the prerequisite to apply for the 300-hour Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) Certification Program.
