Trauma Centre Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY)

TCTSY is an empirically validated, clinical intervention for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant* post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The TCTSY program qualified for inclusion in the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) database published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). In addition to yoga, TCTSY has foundations in Trauma Theory, Attachment Theory, and Neuroscience.

*Treatment-resistant is a term used in scientific studies, and this is NOT a term I abide by in my practice. I do not practice the idea that humans are treatment resistant, difficult, or fail to treat.
