Although TCTSY employs physical forms and movements, the emphasis is not on the external expression or appearance (i.e. doing it “right”), or receiving the approval  of an external authority. Rather, the focus is on the internal experience of the participant. With this approach, the power resides within the individual, not the TCTSY facilitator.   By focusing on the felt sense of the body to inform choice-making, TCTSY enables participants to restore their connection of mind and body and cultivate a sense of agency that is compromised as a result of trauma. Elements of traditional hatha yoga  are modified to build trauma survivors’ experiences of empowerment and cultivate a more positive relationship to one’s body.  In this workshop, you will be introduced theoretical underpinnings of TCTSY and the application of core components.   Lori shares her deep dedication and practice with many personal and professional anecdotes and testimonials. Be ready for interaction, discussion and some TCTSY practice.
