“The TIY Intensive with Hala and Kyra is a nuanced and fiercely empathic approach to trauma, the mind-body connection, and contemporary American society. I would recommend it to anyone who teaches yoga.”

"Trauma-Informed Yoga training really blew my mind. It gave me a framework for understanding my work in the Middle East, but also for understanding how to have compassion for anyone who’s experienced trauma.”
"Trauma-Informed Yoga training gave me invaluable tools for teaching in a woman’s prison through Yoga Behind Bars. I feel I am able to give them so much more. I feel more centered and skilled in my teaching at the prison. It is a gift of tools I am able to pass on to them which they so appreciate. This not only nourishes them but it nourishes me. I am very grateful for the workshop."
"I attended the TIY workshop to further my teaching practice... when finishing, I felt a strong sense that the study of trauma informed yoga should be the 'new wave' of teaching regardless of the populace one is instructing. To have this body of information among the tools amassed for my practice has been a great gift for my students... Thank you again for sharing this imperative information to teachers like myself, who have a strong draw and calling to teach in these communities. It's working!"
"Trauma-Informed Yoga training was inspiring, challenging and has made a large impact both personally and professionally. This training has made me view not only my students, but all I come into contact, with a deeper compassion. It has also heightened my self-awareness so that I can be more honest in how I need to change. Hala facilitated a safe space for a group of 50. Though packed in, especially when on our mats, there was such a deep respect and sense of unity in purpose. There was also accountability, which is so very important to growth. Trauma affects everyone. I highly recommend any teacher or healthcare professional to partake in this workshop"
