I really enjoyed my training with TRY. So much great information and a specific plan for teaching those with trauma. I had been looking for a training for almost 2 years and one day TRY popped up and I am so glad I did it. I have been teaching yoga since 2009 and over the last couple of years, the need for trauma-sensitive yoga has come to me. So many therapists know the benefit of yoga and recommend yoga to their clients but all yoga classes aren’t designed to be for those in trauma.
I feel blessed to be able to share this with those in my life. The training was really fantastic. It was a perfect fusion of psychology, anatomy, biology, empathy, compassion and – YOGA! To consider the integration of trauma within the realm of Yoga was a new philosophy for me. I was able to re-evaluate my own teaching style and learn methods of sensitivity towards those who are not as confident when stepping onto their mat. Joyce shares TRY from the heart and there is no holding back. I love that she presents the program with passion and vulnerability and encourages her students to do the same. She breaks down her sequence piece by piece and explains with enthusiasm and authenticity, why it works the way it does.In addition, I enjoyed listening to Darwin, Melissa and Dr. Ders talk about their various areas of expertise and how they all connect together. Each one of them brings a variety of tools to the table which integrates TRY to the mat.
