In addition, this training satisfies the entrance requirements if you wish to apply for The Center for Trauma and Embodiment’s TCTSY-F certification program.

Licensed Mental Health Clinicians

      • You will learn how to integrate elements of TCTSY into your existing therapeutic work.

    Non-Clinical Yoga Teachers

        • This training will help non-clinical Yoga teachers create a safe space and offer a more trauma-informed Yoga class. In this training, you will learn how to integrate TCTSY elements into your existing teaching work.

        • PLEASE NOTE: For ethical reasons, this workshop does not qualify non-clinical Yoga teachers to offer trauma services, including using the term TCTSY or using the term ‘trauma’ in marketing Yoga classes.

        • This programme is solely for professional development. The context of this workshop is not intended as an intervention for participants who have experienced trauma. The workshop space is intended for teaching purposes and not treatment. Talking about trauma or traumatic events, even in the context of a professional workshop, can be triggering.

      Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy

      Accessible approach

      I have the privilege of being able to help people from all walks of life, through difficult times in their lives. I support adults as they struggle to deal with issues such as stress management, confidence and self-esteem, relationship, grief and loss, addiction, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Developmental and Complex Trauma.

      – Esther van der Sande

      Finally, this Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy training is a practical module which will allow students to become aware of complex trauma in their own clients and students, and clearly define the scope of practice in this field.

      Esther’s accessible and friendly approach offers a fresh perspective, with clinical examples, making this a module not to be missed.
