Greetings to everyone,
You are receiving this email because you are a mental health professional, a yoga teacher or supervise MH professionals or yoga teachers. Below you will find some information regarding Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TSY) and attached is a flyer advertising for a 2.5 day workshop to learn the principles and practice of TSY. Through the link you can find some journal articles on the subject and info regarding the program.
As you may guess from the name, TSY incorporates principles from the practice of Yoga with the body of knowledge from the Mental Health field. Trauma Sensitive Yoga was developed by David Emerson E-RYT in consultation with Bessel Van Der Kolk, MD. Many in the MH world may know the name Van Der Kolk through his extensive work with trauma.
Please feel free to distribute this widely among mental health professionals and yoga teachers but be mindful space is limited to 50 participants. Contact information for registration/questions is provided on the flyer.
Paul Daoust, LPC, LCAS
