Please Note: This workshop satisfies one of the pre-requisites for applicants of the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at JRI's 300-hour Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) Certification Program for Yoga Teachers, Mental Health Care Professionals, and people working with individuals and communities that have experienced trauma to be held annually online from September to April. 

This 20hr workshop provides IAYT and YA members continuing education credits of 18hrs and 20hrs respectively and as your facilitator is a Level 3 Yoga Teacher with Yoga Australia and Medicare endorsed Allied Health Mental Health Clinician and Occupational Therapist, most participants can claim hours from the workshop as professional development via their registration/membership bodies. 

This workshop is solely for professional development and is not a certificate program: to be certified in TCTSY completion of the 300hr TCTSY Certification is required. This workshop is also not intended as an intervention for those who have experienced trauma. Talking about trauma, even in the context of a professional training can be triggering/overwhelming.
