Two distinct foundational workshops are offered, to focus on the different learning needs and questions of yoga teachers and mental health professionals. Actual classes of trauma-informed yoga are also organised, and open to all.

TC-TRAUMA SENSITIVE YOGA
20 HOUR FOUNDATION WORKSHOP
These 20-hour workshops (16 hours in person, 4 hours self-study) are based on the robust research from the Trauma Center, of the Justice Resource Institute in Brookline, MA, USA.
This professional training is designed for mental health clinicians, yoga teachers, educators, and other health care professionals who are looking to:
deepen their understanding of the whole-system impact of complex trauma
deepen their understanding of trauma theories, attachment, neurophysiology, interoception & present moment experience, choice-making & agency, and the use of language in therapy and yoga facilitation
expand their current practice to incorporate trauma sensitive movement and breath practices, that are vital to the healing process of complex trauma, within the participant’s scope of practice
learn about the methodology and evidence-base of the TCTSY model (TCTSY is an evidence-based adjunct treatment for complex trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), dissociative disorders and other related behavioural and emotional presentations).
These workshops will be delivered using several teaching mediums, including: interactive seminars with accompanying handouts; small and large group work and discussion; demonstration and participation in components of a TCTSY class and individual sessions; facilitation practice; use of lived experience; and clinical and yoga class examples.
In the facilitation practice components of the workshops, participants are invited, in small groups, to practice facilitating trauma-sensitive breathing practices, brief trauma-sensitive yoga movement sequences, core components of the TCTSY methodology in practice, and the use of trauma-sensitive language. Kristen Pringle, the TCTSY Trainer, will also facilitate and demonstrate TSY and TCTSY over the course of the two days, including examples of individual and group class yoga teaching practice and individual and group therapy clinical practice.
Both workshops are delivered by a TCTSY Trainer, TCTSY Certification Supervisor and Lecturer and TCTSY facilitator, Kristen Pringle (The Mindful Movement Centre, Australia).
Kristen Pringle is a senior Mental Health Clinician, Occupational Therapist, University Supervisor, Mindfulness facilitator, Yoga Therapist & one of only three licensed Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Trainers (TCTSY-T) and Certification Supervisors in Australasia.

Kristen specialises in infant, parent, and family mental health, somatic and sensory interventions, family violence and complex trauma.
As a senior yoga teacher, yoga therapist and clinician, Kristen is passionate about integrating yoga and mindfulness into mental health and trauma treatment and has facilitated yoga to underserved and trauma populations for over 15 years.
Kristen currently facilitates TCTSY as an adjunctive clinical treatment with individuals, groups and families who have experienced: PTSD; complex and developmental trauma; family violence; sexual assault; or other trauma, dissociative and emotional/behavioural related presentations. Kristen also provides TCTSY training, consultation, professional learning and supervision to organisations, groups and individuals.
This 20 hour Foundational Workshop is accredited by The Center for Trauma and Embodiment at JRI, USA (letter of completion).
It satisfies one of the pre-requisites for applicants of the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at JRI’s TCTSY Certification for Yoga Teachers and/or Mental Health Career Professionals to be held annually via an in-person weekend in Melbourne, Australia; Berlin Germany; or Brookline, USA (and then live online with the Center for Trauma & Embodiment at JRI, (USA) from September to April annually). This workshop satisfies the membership requirements for the TCTSY Clinician Consultation Group (for mental health clinicians, only).
This workshop is solely for professional development and is not a certificate program: to be certified in TCTSY, completion of the 300hr TCTSY Certification is required. This workshop is also not intended as an intervention for those who have experienced trauma. Talking about trauma, even in the context of a professional training can be triggering/overwhelming.
Note: This workshop does not qualify non-clinical yoga teachers to offer trauma services, including TCTSY. This workshop is intended to help non-clinical yoga teachers create a more trauma informed, or Trauma aware yoga session.
