CONSULTING & MENTORSHIP

Bringing trauma informed yoga into clinical settings and social service organizations can be challenging. I work with yoga professionals who are motivated and ready to take responsibility for creating their own success. How do we create effective proposals that get results? How do we speak about our services in a way that is credible? As a yoga therapist who has been working in these settings since 2004, I can help you to create professional and effective programming proposals that will get you noticed.

To arrange a free 15-minute no cost/no obligation phone consultation to assist us in determining if we would be a good fit contact me.

Most teacher training’s provide teachers with the essential foundations for conducting public classes but often leave graduates without more in-depth training in negotiating the teacher/student relationship. Yoga teachers may lack an understanding community and peer support to address questions about their work, debrief difficult teacher/student relationships and discuss ethics. In this workshop participants will gain a theoretical and experiential foundation in the unique qualities of the teacher/student relationship as it pertains to yoga teaching in diverse settings (including studios and social service agencies), personal and professional boundaries, self-care and what it means to teach from a strengths-based, trauma-informed place. This workshop will be offered several times throughout the year and each session will focus on different aspects of personal and professional development.
