Love people as they are, then watch how quickly and naturally they transform into the greatest, truest versions of themselves.
What Led to the Specialization of Trauma?
Monique talks about her own brokenness, and how her subsequent path of treatment and recovery influenced her in her journey to help others heal.
I believe that this is the way that I can serve the world, that I can do something good in the world.
- Make sure the yoga teacher is educated in and has experience working with trauma-informed modalities.
