Trauma Conscious Yoga (TCY) is a gentle, contemplative practice allowing people to learn to reconnect and trust their bodies. This can include inner child work, chakra work, gentle asanas, and meditations all while offering choice to your clients. Grounded in yogic practice, informed by polyvagal theory, internal family systems, client centered therapy, and utilizing trauma sensitive language, this is a truly unique model that is easily integrated into any model of equine assisted practice. You will learn about the fundamentals of TCY and how it can look within your equine assisted psychotherapy sessions.
You do not need special equipment but if you would like to have a yoga mat, a blanket, a bolster or pillow you are welcome to have those in the room with you. Comfortable clothing is suggested, but certainly nothing special required.
