Yoga training for modern life

The current challenges of the modern world, and particularly in 2020, can seem so overwhelming and so extreme as to be almost paralysing. The tendency is to fall into a fight, flight or freeze response, and yet this leaves us little room to drop into the heart space and to show up as fully as we know we can.

Trauma informed yoga for women

This online yoga course is about looking inwards to gently unwind stress and anxiety, integrate past traumas and support vitality. This course is not about reinventing the wheel, but rather about learning how to lean into yoga to support us through these unique times as women.

Empowered Healing for Women: Yoga to Transform Stress and Anxiety is for:

Women who can relate to times of challenge, injury, illness, depression or anxiety.

Yoga Teachers who wish to refine their offerings and teach yoga as a system of life support: to recover from past challenges and be prepared to embrace future ones.

Therapists who feel the importance of guiding clients back to the wisdom of their bodies via simple and effective yoga practices and techniques.

Professionals in need of some R&R: this is deep self-care for those working in conflict areas, humanitarian aid, social work and development.

Early Bird rate until 1st December 2020

Hi, I’m Bex

In 2018, my life turned upside down when I was accidentally set on fire. I lost 30% of my skin. In return, I received the most gracious support of friends, students, teachers and total strangers. I was forced to apply my years of studying and practicing yoga to fully integrate a very real trauma whilst dealing with a severe physical injury.

The accident forced me to see the years of cumulative stress that had wound me into varying states of anxiety. My injury required that I become intimate friends with my body, its cycles, rhythms and history. My recovery demanded that I recommit to my intimate relationships, yoga and spiritual practices in order to move through fear and re-embrace my life.

The content of this training is fresh, sincere, and has come from lived experience. It is not a replacement for therapy. It is an exploration of the gems at the fingertips of every yoga practitioner. It is gold for these unprecedented times.

This course is closed for enrollment.
