Having a trauma informed perspective has added so much to my mind. It gave affirmations that all of us experience life in different stages and the range of ways are nervous system responds. I learned so much and have a few new outlooks of some past chapters in my life.Training Participant

What this training isn’t:
This training is in no way meant to replace the work of health care professionals and as such, will not tell you how to heal your own trauma(s) or the trauma(s) of others.
Amanda delivered a very informed workshop, she was very knowledgeable regarding the subject of Trauma informed Yoga. The discussions were open and I felt Amanda really respected the participants sharing their stories or experiences.
Amanda is extremely well versed in trauma informed yoga. She is knowledgeable, passionate about the subject and is able to share her knowledge in a way that is understandable, practical and informed.
This whole training is about meeting yourself and people where they are at and growing from there. I wish this training was mandatory for all humans.
I learnt so much about myself & about my own trauma and skills and resources I can use to teach both kids and adults. Grateful for Amanda’s teaching always ❤️
This was very informative, and as a yoga teacher I feel like I was able to take and apply some of these principles in my general public classes right away. On a personal level learning about this topic has expanded my awareness of my own reactions and helped me to understand myself on a new level. Thank you for the care and effort put into leading this course, and for handling a sensitive topic with kindness and understanding.
This training was life changing for me. Not only did I learn how to support others in trauma, I learned how to support myself in a whole new way. It gave me the understanding of why I struggle with PTSD at a deeper, more compassionate level. I was blown away by Amanda’s knowledge and expertise. She also creates the safest space I have ever found to learn how to show up as I am and share my gifts with others. I would highly recommend this Trauma Training for all.
When I signed up for the training, I knew I was in for a weekend of heavy emotions and deep learning. I left the weekend feeling empowered and armed with the tools and knowledge to share this practice and hopefully make an impact for those around me. Thank you to Amanda for facilitating such a comprehensive and impactful training. My heart is so full!AT
What a wonderful course and simply eye opening about the power of the mind body connection. This course helped put in perspective my own experiences, while also providing a framework for both making trauma sensitive classes, as well as adding concepts of trauma informed yoga into everyday classes.
This is such an important training. Even if you do not plan to teach specifically, just for knowledge and understanding. Everyone, not just yogis, should take this training. It should be taught in high schools and businesses and communities and everywhere.Melanie
The training last weekend was amazing. I truly appreciated the atmosphere (as always) and the examples that Amanda
shared with us. Talking about trauma is delicate and I'm not exactly sure how Amanda did it, but it felt hopeful
somehow.. I learned so much and I feel that the tempo and structure were exactly right.
I signed up for the Trauma Informed course looking for a more mindful way to speak and increase my knowledge from a
yoga teachers perspective. I received tenfold what I was hoping to. Even though this is a very heavy and sensitive
subject the information was presented in an absorbable, enjoyable way. Worth everyone’s time, effort and money to
gain a most valuable perspective on a topic that affects most people we encounter including ourselves. Amanda
is extremely knowledgeable on the subject of trauma, highly recommend!
The subject of trauma is deep and intense and, although impossible to learn all there is to know about trauma, Amanda presented the
material in a very digestible way. The handout provided was through and will be something I go back to often as
reference. Amanda created a container for learning that felt so safe and comfortable. She allowed for lots of questions
and discussion and moved at a pace that was perfect! I feel like this training may just be the beginning of the learning journey about trauma for me. I came away with many tools and strategies to help my classes (whether trauma informed or not) feel
more inclusive, inviting and accessible to ALL, regardless of background.
Amanda’s trauma-informed yoga training went beyond my expectations. I appreciated the science behind how trauma affects the nervous system and brain, as well as exploring how power dynamics and adverse childhood experiences contribute to someone’s trauma. The principles of trauma-informed yoga were clearly explained, as well as highlighting language choices. I’m really glad I participated in the optional practicum – creating a short practice really showed me how challenging it is to use appropriate language and maintain a feeling of invitation for the students.
