I am very happy to announce a new five day Therapeutic Yoga training, a collaborative effort with Mary Elizabeth Sheehan of Yoga Potential, Ft. Worth, Texas.
If you are a yoga studio, a retreat center, or a holistic center anywhere in the world, we will come to you — no destination is too far! Contact either of us for more information. This is an extraordinary training that combines three somatic modalites of yin yoga, trauma sensitive yoga, and Vedic Thai Yoga.
We are scheduling now for 2012 and 2013 —
“Each day will include lecture and discussion on the philosophy behind three somatic modalities, and body awareness practice via yoga, bodywork, and guided meditations. Both Linda and Mary Elizabeth will be in the classroom every day. Each day will last 8-10 hours including morning and afternoon breaks and a lunch break.”
Yoga connects! Mary Elizabeth is a long-time reader of this blog and we finally met this summer. Our energies and philosophies about yoga and healing clicked and after receiving Vedic Thai Yoga from her — and for those of you in the DFW area, Mary Elizabeth is an awesome practitioner — we decided to combine our modalities.
This five day training will also be part of my Yoga and Spirituality Tour in the Himalayas to take place in March 2013. The training will be an option to the 10 day package. Stay tuned for details in 2012 — yoga studios who host my workshops in 2012 will receive “early bird” information regarding this tour.
“Linda was one of the first participants in the teacher training program my wife and I developed. She has since participated in several others and we have corresponded on many issues about yoga, anatomy, and teaching. I recommend her without reservation.” – Paul Grilley

Yes, it does. It connected us virtually and then later in “real life.”
Yoga also HEALS, and that is what this workshop is all about. We aren’t saying you’ll walk out pain-free or sorrow-free, but you will be exposed to three amazing modalities that, through conscious practice, can change your life. I feel safe in speaking for Linda when I say that these modalities that we currently offer have changed our lives.
To quote Ram Dass:
“Healing is not, after all, the same as curing. Healing does not mean going back to the way things were before, but rather of allowing what is now to move us closer to God.”
Well, I don’t know if you still plan to come to Nova Scotia some day to teach, but this looks great. Are there any books you recommend about trauma-sensitive yoga?
yes, Grace, I am sending that email before I leave for India. and the book I used for my training was “Overcoming Trauma Through Yoga” by David Emerson.
Feel free to email me if you need any help or have questions.
