Join us for the Exhale to Inhale trauma-informed yoga teacher training! 

Are you interested in learning more about the effect of trauma on the mind & body? As a yoga teacher, have you had a students’ trauma triggered during one of your classes? Get the resources and tools you need to act appropriately when this happens.

The training, facilitated by Exhale to Inhale Teacher Trainer Tara Tonini, includes 14 hours of lecture/experiential learning, a training manual, on-line community for sharing & networking, and access to videos / audio for continuing education.

Students will gain tangible trauma-informed yoga tools, learning how to modify yoga to make it more sensitive to those who have experienced trauma, and inclusive to all communities.
