the practice

co-taught with Lauren Wessinger a 200-hour Teacher Training Program

Yoga is the practice of staying awake to life, of making clear informed decisions that best support your own body, and of understanding the impermanence of it all. In this training, we hope to share this life-changing practice which has brought us home to this body and this soul, time and time again. We will present the information we’ve learned on our own path of living a life of yoga both as student and teacher, and the wisdom we’ve gained from our own mentors and teachers throughout the years. We will share with you all we know to empower you to be the best teacher you can be.

trauma informed
yoga training

February 22-24, 2020

The goal of a trauma-informed yoga practice is to build resiliency and improved self-regulation in the nervous system.

This 25-hour course presents a physiological framework for understanding trauma and how it manifests in the body and mind. It is appropriate for yoga teachers, clinicians, therapists, social workers, first responders, those who work in the medical fields and in the non-profit sector, as well as people seeking to utilize a trauma-informed yoga approach in their own lives.

When trauma remains unresolved, it can create mental health issues as well as physical disease and relationship stress. This training is designed to offer tools from the field of trauma research, yoga, and mindfulness to manage and resolve symptoms of trauma.
