Join us virtually and then meet us in Mexico for 10 days of paradise!


Join us on the breathtaking pacific coast of Mexico for 10 days of paradise once you’ve completed the online portion of our Hybrid YTT!


The small town of Chacala is considered Mexico’s hidden paradise, inviting a peaceful and serene environment to complete your training! Mar de Jade is a Yoga, Wellness & Vacation Retreat Center nestled between the tropical jungle and the pristine sandy beach of Chacala, México. This is an intimate place offering individuals a relaxing, supportive, and inspiring environment in a peaceful fishing village.


Yoga is a practice of collective liberation. In this way, trauma-informed yoga is people-informed yoga. This course is designed not only to provide you with the tools you need to share the ancient wisdom of yoga with others in a trauma sensitive way, but also to inquire into your own life from this perspective. We will focus heavily on the ways you can take yoga off of the mat and into the world, insighting powerful change in your communities.


The online portion of this program will allow us to cultivate a strong container with clear guidelines and foundational principles to follow as a cohort so that our time together can be utilized as a space of vulnerability, discovery, and learning. We will use our virtual time together to cover didactic material to ensure that we all have the same fundamental understanding of trauma-informed work before we meet in-person. With this solid foundation in place, we can then continue this exploration which is further amplified through interpersonal, in-real-life exchanges and discussions. We hope you can join us!

When “teaching” Yoga, we are not just guiding poses.

We are guiding people.

We are guiding nervous systems.

We are guiding complex and unique physiologies.

Each of us has a different orientation of how we perceive our own safety or lack thereof. Through a psycho-somatic understanding of Trauma and the ways it lives in the body, we can embrace the practice of Yoga in a way that permits each individual to have their own experience. Psycho-education around dissociation and disembodiment can give us the tools to not only understand our own physiology but the ways in which the inner worlds and trauma responses of the folks that we work with may differ from our own.

A yoga space that honors the nuance of the human experience facilitates an environment where each practitioner can take agency over their own bodily autonomy, nervous system regulation, and power of choice. A truly trauma-informed environment embraces and welcomes all emotional realities while highlighting the undeniable truth that embodiment means discerning for oneself what feels right and what feels safe in each moment.


Our integration of this knowledge then informs the way that we show up to hold space for others on their mats. With compassion, curiosity, and kindness we can broaden our willingness to meet the fluctuations of being human both within ourselves and within each other. Embodiment practices, such as Yoga asana, are proven to be the most effective modality in trauma recovery. With this in mind, we learn that we can excavate art from our painful experiences and use it all as a source of freedom and authentic self-expression.


Through the lens of Trauma-Informed education, Yoga is not only an art and a science but a necessity for the future of our world at large.
