About the Foundations Training 

The 20 hour training, 14 hours on zoom or in person and 6 hours of self study, is designed for social workers, mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, and health care professionals etc who are looking to deepen their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex Trauma. The course will emphasize the core components of the practice and process of Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga and will provide specific tools to support participants to facilitate trauma sensitive movement and breath practices that are vital to the healing process. Through developing an understanding of complex trauma, attachment theory, and the neuroscience underpinning the TCTSY methodology participants gain skills that support healing from long term trauma. Participants will learn to foster this anti- oppressive approach to healing through a trauma informed lens. Group lecture, practice through movement and breath as well as group practicum will be offered.
