with Lori (Bodhi) Edwards

EmpowerYoga with Lori EdwardsThis informative and experiential six-week program is intended for clinicians and professionals working with trauma survivors. The aim is to introduce some theoretical concepts and offer an opportunity to practice the evidence-based intervention for complex trauma: Trauma Center Trauma-Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) created by David Emerson in partnership with Dr. Bessel van der Kolk. Note: no prior yoga experience is assumed/required.

TCTSY is an empirically validated, adjunctive clinical treatment for complex trauma or chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. Developed at the Trauma Center in Brookline, Massachusetts, TCTSY has foundations in Trauma Theory, Attachment Theory, and Neuroscience as well as Hatha Yoga practice with an emphasis on body-based yoga forms and breathing practices.

This initial program will be followed with a registration only program open to anyone who self identifies as having experienced trauma and /or is referred. Participants do not need a specific diagnosis, however please note that there is a brief confidential conversation to determine suitability at the time of registration.

Facilitator Lori Edwards is associated, trained, and supported by the Trauma Centre. Lori brings a wealth of experience and education in both Mental Health and Yoga, including Trauma and Therapeutic Pain Management. Please contact Lori with any questions or comments regarding the program or schedule.
