“Yoga for Trauma I & II have influenced my ability to do my job in profound ways. I work at a local non-profit agency doing case management with clients who often have significant traumatic backgrounds (military veterans experiencing homelessness). While I am not in a counseling relationship with these clients, these trainings have given me an understanding of the effects of trauma, and a variety different coping strategies to try with individuals who are open to trying out a technique.

These trainings have also impacted my ability to do my job on a personal level. Having lived my own traumatic experiences can make intervening effectively with others challenging. I have learned a number of skills and tools to use for self-regulation, focus, and recovery from difficult interactions. I have arrived at a sense of confident ability to handle almost anything, and remain comfortably at baseline throughout the experience.

My favorite part of what Anna and Becca do is that they truly adapt their curriculum and message for the people who attend the trainings. In our case, we needed personal practices to care for ourselves as a way to combat compassion fatigue.

I personally enjoyed learning about Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda. The information that was shared gave me a new way to think about caring for myself and contributing to my overall wellness. I have a better understanding of how to use my diet to influence my energy level, along with many other breathing and physical posture techniques that are available to do so.

Helping professionals can benefit so much from taking time to focus on their own wellness practice regularly. I simply cannot wait to return for a third immersive session of material that contributes so heavily to practices that keep me well and able to show up for individuals who need support every day.”
