Saturday, September 30th 1:00 - 5:00pm

Jersey City studio


Because in a post-pandemic world, we ALL have trauma. 

Fortunately, when we have the knowledge to meet ourselves + each other as we are, we can create a kinder, more compassionate world for all.


This 4-hour crash course teaches you everything you need to know about the body's protective responses to trauma, their long-term effects, and the ways trauma shows up in our everyday lives (and the lives of those we love).

This training is open to anyone, but is tailored towards yoga teachers who are looking to integrate this work into how they teach and engage with students.
