Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY), developed by leading researchers in the fields of trauma, yoga and psychology, is an evidenced-based way to help PTSD and Complex Trauma. Our brains try to help with hard things, sometimes by disconnecting in important ways. TCTSY works in combination with mental health treatment, to encourage reconnection with the body.

The Research

TCTSY is based on clinical trials performed at the Trauma Center at JRI in Brookline, MA by researchers including psychiatrist  Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and yoga teacher David Emerson.
