About Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY)
TCTSY is underpinned by trauma theory, attachment theory and neuroscience and is based on central components of hatha yoga, where we practice a series of physical forms and movements to explore having a body and using our body as a resource. Participants are invited and empowered to choose what they want to do with their body while practicing breathing, moving, strengthening, stretching and resting in an accessible and non-judgmental environment. TCTSY aims to build participants’ experiences of empowerment and agency and cultivate a more positive relationship to one’s body.
Who is the training for?
This training is open to yoga teachers and mental health practitioners as well as mental health students who are interested in learning more about trauma and working with survivors or simply wish to expand their knowledge and skill-set.
If you work in a different profession where you feel this knowledge would be beneficial, please get in touch to discuss the suitability of the training.
