Celeste, C-IAYT Yoga Therapist
I am a certified yoga therapist specializing in working with childhood trauma survivors. I am a Survivor myself, and it's how and why I found yoga and how and why I healed. Yoga was my way out of chronic pain brought on by the trauma stored in my body, my way out of the anxiety, depression and dissociation. When I started taking yoga in 2009, we didn't have the designation of childhood trauma. PTSD was for veterans returning from the war. But slowly, slowly, yoga changed my life and my perceptions of life.
I followed the path that I now understand was mine. I now assist people like me, who have a desire to heal and help themselves by working with their bodies and minds, using the ancient science of yoga.
I am certified by Yoga Alliance as an ERYT500, YACEP, and also by the International Association of Yoga Therapy as a C-IAYT.
