Using yoga to heal the body, mind and spirit is the foundation of Treating Trauma with Yoga, the passion and the ongoing journey of Celeste Mendelsohn.
Celeste has a personal connection with complex trauma through family addiction, and a deep, personal connection to the practice of yoga for healing her own anxiety, depression, insomnia and other effects of Complex Trauma. Yogic movement and breath practices can help people reconnect to their 'felt sense,' which is often shut down by repetitive trauma. Celeste also has extensive experience using breath and movement for reducing or eliminating breathing disorders, anxiety and insomnia brought on by the effects of trauma and SUD.
Celeste is a C-IAYT Yoga Therapist, certified through the International Association of Yoga Therapists, and an ERYT200/RYT500 through Yoga Alliance. She is also certified as a Meditation teacher through the Masters of Wisdom and Meditation program by davidji, as well as holding certifications in Yoga of Recovery, Yoga of 12 Step Recovery (Y12SR), Yoga for Mood Management and Yoga for Self-Regulation and Trauma. She facilitates workshops and trainings for clients and other teachers and has a course on Yoga University Online called Teaching Yoga for Substance Use Disorder. Celeste is also a BALM Family Recovery coach, working with the families with loved ones who have use disorders.
For the anatomy component of your yoga teacher training, we're partnering with world-renowned Yoga Educators & best-selling authors of Yoga Anatomy, Leslie Kaminoff & Amy Matthews.
Using what they've learned in their combined 50-years of experience training yoga teachers, they've created a unique online + in-person course that's exclusively available through Teacher Training programs: YogaAnatomy.net Fundamentals.
This is not your average anatomy training. Don't expect hours of "which bone is which" that make you feel like you're back in high school science classes...
Leslie & Amy spend time on the things that matter most to a yoga teacher and skip the memorization.
They'll help you establish a broad base of knowledge by sharing examples, analogies, stories, and guiding you through physical experiments that make the material helpful and applicable to teaching yoga to students.
Leslie & Amy will also share their own favorite teaching strategies like...
* How to make poses accessible for any student
* What to do when students have an injury and still want to practice
* Simple cues that help every student find success on the mat
Leslie and Amy's unique blend of humor and expertise make them the absolute best team to guide you through this phase of your journey.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You'll join Amy & Leslie at home via your computer for 20-hours of guided lesson content, reflection, personal exploration, and teaching preparation.
They'll lead you through movement experiments that will help you apply anatomy ideas to your own practice, and give you tools you'll be able to access as a teacher. You'll have time to soak up the material and try it out it in your own asana practice.
This means that each time we come together as a group, you'll already have a strong foundation in that unit's content and we'll be able to dive even deeper into the material, rather than spend valuable group time on basic concepts and memorization.
Our group time will be spent in hands-on application. We'll break into discussion groups, share movement exercises, and observe exactly how this information interweaves with our tradition.
By the time we're finished, you'll have a broad understanding of the anatomical concepts that are most important to a yoga teacher so you can begin teaching with confidence.

Why Trauma Aware Yoga Teacher Training?
The short answer is because it is about damn time. The longer answer unfolds below. But first, a question for you:
In this time of heightened anxiety and stress in the world, what draws you to the teachings and the practice of yoga?
This is not an idle question. It’s supremely important that we attempt to understand ourselves before we undertake the instruction of others... Even if the understanding we have of Us is imperfect... Even if we question our questions... Even if (maybe especially if) we hope that the instruction we seek will help us to answer those questions for ourselves.
The word Yoga in Sanskrit (a language that you will become more and more familiar with if you continue on this path), is generally translated to mean Union. This refers to the harmony and balance between the mind, body, emotions and spirit. We emphasize the word emotions here, because it is not a part of the generally accepted definition - however, our emotions (called vrtti’s Sanskrit) exist on a plane different from our body and mind, and yet affect both. We may be completely detached from our emotions, not really present to what we are feeling, but if we’re brought to awareness of our mental state or our physical state, we can easily see our peacefulness or our dysregulation. Because emotion affects us. All of us. It is also affected By our thoughts and our physical comfort and also a lack of comfort.

The questions were designed for reflection, not a diagnosis. Using the tools of yoga therapy to heal trauma requires a willingness to look at “what’s happening now” as a way of better understanding yourself and learning to give yourself the best possible care and comfort in any given moment.
