Teaching yoga with Purple Dot Yoga Project has been one of the most rewarding experiences for me as an instructor

I felt many of my open wounds close with the tools and techniques offered throughout the training. I felt like I could be a ‘Wounded Warrior’ with the power to stand tall and overcome anything, despite the scars that I carry to this day.

This training has shifted the way I think about and define trauma, increasing my empathy and understanding of the different appearances of trauma. I know this will change the way I approach and relate to my clients.
