Location: Nourish Wellness – located at Unit C-1822 Comox Avenue, Comox, BC

Participants:
​This 20 hr (15 contact hours) workshop is designed for yoga teachers, mental health care professionals, and health care providers who want to apply a trauma informed lens using the evidence-based techniques of Trauma Center-Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY). This training is beneficial for healing professions supporting trauma survivors in journey of recovery.

You DO NOT need to be a certified yoga instructor to attend.

Recommendation:
Please prioritize a plan for self care throughout the weekend of the training. It can be demanding and it is supportive to create space for integration and digestion of material.  There is the possibility of being triggered by material or content that might come up in discussions, therefore please come prepared with tools and resources that support your nervous system.

Training Details:
This anti-oppressive approach to healing supports recovery from individual and collective long-term trauma through movement, present moment experiences and choice.

The generative training will provide tools for understanding the impacts of stress and trauma on the nervous system and how this practice could facilitate peace building from within, through mending bodies and nervous systems.  Participants will learn to foster this anti-oppressive approach to healing through the application of a trauma-informed lens.  Developing an understanding of complex trauma, attachment theory, and the neuroscience underpinning the TCTSY methodology, participants foster skills to facilitate a movement and breath practice that could support healing from long-term trauma.

TCTSY is an adjunct treatment grounded in the western medical model with robust research demonstrating successful outcomes for those with treatment resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  This is the only yoga technique registered as an evidence based practice with Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association (SAMHSA) within the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) in the United States.

This training is the pre-requisite required to apply for the 300-hr TCTSY Certification Program with the Trauma Center.

Pre-requisites:
Curiosity
