Teaching Trauma Sensitive Yoga: A Workshop for Yoga Teachers and Mental Healthcare Clinicians

Led by: Jenn Turner

From November 30, 2018 at 6:00 pm until December 2, 2018 at 5:00 pm at Gowanus

This 20-hour training (18 hrs in person, 2 hrs self-study) is based in the robust research from the Trauma Center, of the Justice Resource Institute in Brookline, MA. Core emphasis is placed on how the core components of the practice and process of trauma sensitive yoga, are the core building blocks to any anti- oppressive and 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 in personal, professional, community-based or system-wide relationships.

Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an evidence-based adjunct treatment for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). TCTSY is the only yoga-based practice accepted by SAMSHA and NREPP. This 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 the healing the impacts of complex trauma on the nervous system, via trauma sensitive movement and breath. This weekend training qualifies as the pre-requisite for application for Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga's annual certification program.
