Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) is an evidence-based treatment protocol for complex trauma and treatment-resistant PTSD developed by leading researchers in the fields of trauma & psychology.
TCTSY is the first somatic modality to be scientifically proven as an effective adjunctive treatment for psychological trauma. It engages the neural networks in the brain that are damaged by trauma.
This series is designed specifically to cultivate safety & heal trauma held in the mind & body.
Open to anyone who self-identifies as having experienced trauma.
You do not need to have an official PTSD diagnosis to participate, nor do you need to have prior yoga experience.
