TC-Trauma Sensitive Yoga - 4 Day Workshop


  • Jamyang Buddhist Centre 43 Renfrew Road London, SE11 4NA United Kingdom (map)

SOLD OUT. Please make a booking to be added to the waiting list.

The yoga program run by the Trauma Centre at Justice Resource Institute has helped thousands of people dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), from survivors of chronic abuse to war veterans.

Research conducted by the Trauma Centre showed that the Trauma Centre Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) model significantly reduced symptoms of PTSD.

The founder of the program, David Emerson, will be presenting a 4 day workshop for those who wish to bring TCTSY to their students or clients.

This course is a prerequisite for those wishing to enroll in The Trauma Centre's TCTSY Certification program.

You learn:

  • The latest trauma theories and neurophysiology
  • Theoretical underpinnings and methodology of TCTSY
  • The tools you need to make your yoga teaching more trauma-informed

Required & recommended reading can be found here.

This program is solely for professional development and is not intended as an intervention for those who have experienced trauma. Talking about trauma, even in the context of a professional training, may be triggering.
