In 2002, when David Emerson first reached out to Dr. Bessel van der Kolk about the idea of using yoga for trauma there were no models that existed within a clinical context to turn to for guidance. The program needed to be created from scratch. Combining the clinical insights of van der Kolk and Emerson’s dedication to yoga teaching for traumatized people, the first pilot studies were undertaken by the Trauma Center.
