Supporting Trauma Recovery Yoga (TRY) in Kurdistan

Posted: 02/08/2022

What is this all about?

TRY stands for Trauma Recovery Yoga, which includes various mind-body methods for trauma recovery & building resilience, all based in science and psychology.

We are proud to support TRY Global who facilitated two 20-hour teacher trainings in Duhok back in June 2022, training 27 individuals to become instructors. As RPS Partnership, we were able to be part of this amazing training which is the FIRST of its kind in the region. Check out the amazing video and we are so truly in awe of the trainers who passed. Well done everyone!

Course participants were mainly Syrian refugees or Host Community Members working in humanitarian or mental health fields who will be teaching in refugee camps, non-profit organizations, orphanages, autism centers, and around the country and hopefully in the future around the region. The reason, we at RPS Partnership support and have been running training of trainers is that learning in your native language makes all the difference to understanding and to ensuring that you then carry out what you have learnt. Never more important than in this subject.

We were proud to be a part of this powerful training and can’t wait to see the ripple effects in these communities.
