This workshop is a program of the Center for Trauma & Embodiment (JRI, Massachusetts), a leader in the field of developing and researching innovative and embodied approaches to healing from severe post-traumatic stress (PTSD) and complex trauma.

This 20hr, 2 day Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Foundation Workshop, (with pre workshop study), will introduce you to the foundations, core concepts and applications of the highly regarded, evidence based yoga program for adults and youth affected by PTSD, CPTSD, developmental, and/or complex trauma, dissociative disorders and other related emotional and behavioural difficulties, TC-TSY was first developed at the Trauma Center in 2003 and has been part of JRI since 2006.

TC-TSY is the ONLY Yoga programme that has been recognised as a clinical adjunctive treatment for trauma in the USA by SAMSHA:NREPP (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration: National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices), which is uniquely why this trauma-sensitive yoga workshop will assist the people you work with.


This workshop is intended to inspire yoga teachers to make their classes more trauma-aware and to support health providers to bring the body into treatment when working with people affected by traumatic stress and complex trauma.

This workshop will introduce you to practices and principles that have continued to be researched since 2003, practised clinically, and delivered within communities across the globe.
