What makes the TRY method unique is its grounding in neuroscience and understanding of how the brain processes trauma.

TRY stands for “Trauma Recovery Yoga” or “Total Resilience Yoga," and is for everyone, not just for people who have experienced trauma in their lives. The TRY method uses neuroplasticity to help build resilience, making people better able to regulate themselves when faced with difficult situations.

You'll acquire new tools that'll propel you on your healing journey, strengthening your mind-body connection, and helping you to facilitate others’ recovery from trauma. Our training includes practical techniques on and off the yoga mat. 

This training will also prepare you to work with populations in crisis, as we discuss and analyze the obstacles and benefits of practicing and teaching yoga, meditation, and breathing techniques to vulnerable populations.

All trainees will walk away with new tools and the knowledge of the science behind these tools, and will have practiced guiding their peers through each class.
