Online Training in Yoga, Trauma Recovery and Healing Sexual Trauma

Note this training isn't being run by Exhale to Inhale.  It is being offered by two incredibly accomplished trauma informed teachers!  In addition to the opportunity to learn from these industry leaders, your participation will also help raise funds for both Exhale to Inhale and for The Breathe Network.

Zabie Yamasaki and Lisa Danylchuk have come together for the first time to offer their premier online trainings together as a comprehensive resource for teachers and clinicians using yoga to heal from sexual trauma.  Thanks to Lisa & Zabie's incredible generosity, a portion of proceeds from this training will be donated to Exhale to Inhale, and to our friends at The Breathe Network.  Learn more about the training and register here.

Exhale to Inhale has held trauma-informed teacher trainings and workshops at these partner studios:

I came in with some basic background on trauma informed yoga, so was unsure about how much new information I would learn. I ended up learning more than I ever imagined and came out inspired, touched, and with a more nuanced and deep understanding of trauma informed yoga than I thought possible.

Thank you for a fantastic teacher training weekend! I really enjoyed the experience. I wish to express kudos for bringing us together as a community, creating a safe space for us to be open and vulnerable, and for delivering high quality instruction. The class you led us through helped me understand how a trauma-informed yoga class matters – I could feel the difference.

The way in which the training was facilitated was seamless. The way in which it seeped into me was magical I loved the intentional way in which community and safety was prioritized during the training, mirroring a trauma informed yoga class. I also loved how the nuance and complexity of trauma and trauma informed yoga was not shied away from.

I have walked away continuing to talk about the neuroscience and the bodies response to an exhale vs an inhale. I am still processing and feel like I will be working through this training for many years to come. I am so grateful. Thank you

I think every yoga teacher needs to have an understanding of how to hold space for someone who has experienced trauma because they can be in any class.
