go BEYOND ...

its not just about trauma.

mbcy trauma-informed training intends that everyone can be guided to the other side of the crippling effects of trauma.
an in-depth and time-tested education of embodied mindfulness is necessary.

trauma must be studied and understood in an embodied way with an experienced teacher in order to cultivate that 'wisdom'.

we will help you to learn how to practice, lead & teach more effectively from a life-giving and affirming place of compassion as your mbcy trauma-informed approach.

”Thank you for sharing all that you know, with the world. Thank you for showing me how to love myself; that its ok to be here, and that I deserve a chance."
-Faye, 100 hr Graduate

"I had a chance for me to explore the deep disquiet inside myself in a way that embodied the lovingkindness I am now able to share with my community."
-Clare, 200 hr. Graduate

"I chose to study with nina because the program is as much of a life training as it is a yoga training."
Mateo, 300 hr. Graduate

in this trauma-informed mbcy teacher training for transforming trauma into wisdom, you will learn...

  • how a lead teacher with 35+ years of experience combines facets of yoga, embodied psychology + mindfulness into a single, effective approach.
  • what teachings of classic wisdom & trauma research can offer you as an individual and a yoga teacher.
  • why invitations into the mystery of your own authentic experience hold the keys to the gold of YOUR wisdom.
  • when guided explorations into your OWN trauma transformations are appropriate to keep for yourself and when they are portals to invite others to do the same
  • where trauma-informed group facilitation, insights & practices are appropriate, effective and apt for the world you want to see.

trauma is a unique experience...

it is not just a pathology.

BELIEVE and KNOW that we can learn to see the wellness in all people, even if they're not feeling good.

seeing the wellness & goodness in ourselves & others, even when we are not feeling well or good is a seed of transformation.

time & time again, in myself and others, a contemplative & compassionate approach to using specific trauma-sensitive knowledge & practices has helped those who felt hopelessly and terminally unwell.

because, as a yoga teacher, you are not a medical professional, it behooves you to learn more about how to value & support the natural potential of wellness & wisdom within yourself & others.
