Advance Review of her book, "Trauma Healing in the Yoga Zone."
"Trauma Healing in the Yoga Zone ... is the perfect bridge between the teachings of Yoga, modern allopathic medicine and the psychology of healing trauma. The book explains in detail how the nervous system functions when it is healthy vs. dysregulated, and how to bring it back to balance using the tools of yoga. I will be recommending this book to all of my students and colleagues!"

SUMMARY OF COURSE
This course provides mental health and yoga therapy professionals with a clinical foundation for using trauma-sensitive yoga, integrated with polyvagal theory, to improve therapy outcomes for individuals with symptoms of psychological trauma, anxiety and depression.
The trainings include the study of both polyvagal theory and trauma-sensitive yoga interventions, such as chair postures, breathing practices, and relaxation techniques (yoga nidra and meditation). The material will be taught through lecture, case discussions, experiential exercises, and hands-on practicums.
The methods presented in these workshops CAN BE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH ANY TREATMENT APPROACH. NO PRIOR YOGA EXPERIENCE REQUIRED (though it is helpful!)  
  
Gain experience and techniques which you can apply in your work (and life) immediately!
