Studio & Teacher Reviews
The Driven Yogi’s Trauma Informed Training was an excellent introduction to trauma for our team! The workshop was well organized, interactive, and really clear in presenting its concepts and best practices. I really appreciated the balance between delivering information and providing opportunities for practice.
I feel more knowledgeable, curious, and rooted in the fundamentals of creating an inclusive yoga space, as well as equipped with the resources to be a true accomplice for underserved and underrepresented communities. Do yourself, your students & yoga studios a favor by investing in these courses.
Taking the branding course was the single most valuable choice I’ve made in furthering my career, feeling confident in my offers, and staying excited to work with new clients.
