    1. I was required to read this book for the training I am doing with trauma sensitive yoga, and on the basis that I am already studying other somatic practices: including SE and TRE I was excited to see how these worlds connected. I have been a yogi for some 20 years and was fascinated to see how yoga could be so expertly broken down to accommodate the needs of the yoga student who in suffering from prior trauma may well be extremely triggered by the approach of most yoga teachers. This is not thro [...]


    2. I've had more than my share of life-changing books recently, and this is the one that started the recent healing spree. It's meant for clinicians and yoga instructors who have patients with complex trauma. (complex trauma is a subdivision of PTSD, but therapists cannot get paid for that diagnosis; one of many things I learned from this book.) Still, it's very accessible and, for the first time in many years, I feel hope that I can rejoin society in a "normal" way. The method behind TSY focuses n [...]


    3. Great book to begin introducing yoga into a trauma sensitive therapy practice. This book provides a framework and explores issues to be aware of. The pictures that go along with the poses are also clear. I would highly recommend this book to any clinician looking for new ways to help clients access their bodies and begin to heal.


    4. I read this book as I was working on my first TSY support group. The book is practical, simple to implement and very very clear. So this is a great first-read if you are starting to think about this treatment.The only problem is that it describes a very minimal approach to Yoga treatment for trauma, something that is not even yoga, but simply movement-mindfulness. So for therapists that are already working in this field or if you are looking for something more progressive and advanced, this book [...]
