TISI Level 1: Practitioner Basic Somatic Tools

Taking the information provided in the intro course we will then take you deeper into the realm of bringing the conceptual understanding into an experiential somatic wisdom. Following the physiology and theories of trauma, (or form and function of our nervous systems), you will begin to build the inner tools to track and respond from a bottom up approach. We will be integrating the theory throughout this course with experiential exercises and chi gong.
