from the soul
200hr trauma informed
yoga teacher training
"It took 3.8 billion years of triumphant evolution, remarkable collision, an unbelievable confluence made by sheer will and influence of this infinite universe and all of the stars to get you here.
I hope you never doubt again that even when you are in pain, that you are a miracle, that every part of you is incredible. "
- Nikita Gill
This will be a journey of self-discovery, growth and transformation like no other.
This experience is going to be so much more than a yoga teacher training. This is going to be a transformative, life altering, heart bursting healing journey and I cant wait for you dive in!
We will create a sacred space together where you are safe to show up each day exactly as you need to be. There will be absolutely no judgment, only love in the space and among the group. We will cry and laugh and than cry some more. And i invite you to feel into all of the feelings, ever single one of them, the comfortable and the uncomfortable, the lightness and the darkness because there is beauty inside all of it, there are teachings inside all of it.
Immerse yourself with knowledge and practical experience through the teachings of Yoga. Discover the transformative power of this ancient healing practice through a trauma informed lens. Expand on your current abilities and personal practice and watch yourself evolve.
My hope for you is that you leave this experience more in love with the extraordinary person that you are and feel empowered to stand proud in your truth. I hope you feel more confident to empower individuals to connect with their true essence through an embodied therapeutic and trauma sensitive approach to emotional and physical health and healing.
I invite you to embark upon this powerful journey with us as we explore the mysteries of our own heart and peel away the layers and awaken to our soul’s purpose.
I am so deeply honoured to walk this path with so many amazing humans and I cant wait to start this journey together.
With all of my love and gratitude,
"Compare your journey to no one else.
You are countries and stories already.
You are a million different words, a million different ways.
You are forests and forest fires alike.
A ship and the sea together.
The only person you must compare yourself with is yourself.
Your journey is your most powerful story"
