Working toward a world in which all people have an understanding of the effects of traumatic experiences and possess the tools to heal
TRY Global is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the TRY Method to displaced and vulnerable populations worldwide.
TRY is more than just trauma-informed yoga. We offer various mind-body methods like breath, meditation and movement, all rooted in science and psychology. Based in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, the TRY Global Team serves survivors of genocide, orphans, refugees and more. As well, our mobile Crisis Response Team (CRT) deploys to areas around the world impacted by disaster to share these tools with people in need.

How We Serve
Our trainings offer a variety of valuable experiential opportunities to better understand the science of trauma and how to heal through somatic-based therapies. Offered both virtually and in-person, our trainings are open to all caregivers, humanitarians, first responders, counselors or for one's own healing. The trainings will uniquely prepare you to work with populations in crisis who have experienced trauma.
We offer a variety of classes for children and adults, both on the mat and in a chair, and geared toward both beneficiaries and humanitarian aid workers. Whether virtually or online, participants experience a recalibration of the nervous system and leave with a sense of overall well-being.
Crisis Response Team
Our mobile Crisis Response Team (CRT) deploys to areas impacted by disaster, partnering with local organizations to provide mind-body techniques for recovery and resilience. We serve at-risk individuals and frontline humanitarian workers, offering on-site classes and facilitating trainings to certify locals as TRY instructors. Our CRT helps build sustainable systems to continue sharing TRY long after our team has left.
What People Are Saying
Catholic Charities, Chicago
Today was a hard day for all of them (domestic violence shelter residents), but it was so good to hear the moms talking about calming down and breathing during an emergency. I just want you to know that you are teaching them an invaluable skill and today was the perfect example.
Mindful Movements Training
I on behalf of all participants want to thank you from bottom of my heart. It was such a wonderful experience to learn various techniques and I am sure we will definitely use and practice these techniques in the future for us and for our beneficiaries too. Once again, we are really thankful to you.
Washington DC Public Schools
Great training, I love the energy of the presenters. I appreciate the content and I appreciate the presenters' ability to adjust the content from Feedback. For example, when we mentioned we work with children they gave us great examples of how to adapt it for them.
