Trauma Informed Yoga for adults & teens
Hello, I’m Pauline. I’m a fully qualified yoga teacher for adults and teens working in Cambridge, UK. I am fully insured with full DBS clearance and up-to-date First Aid and Safeguarding certificates. My own yoga journey began over 20 years ago when I joined my first class and soon discovered how the tiredness and headaches I often had at the end of a day of secondary school teaching had disappeared after my evening yoga class. After regular yoga practice I felt so many positive changes and eventually decided to train to teach yoga myself. My training initially was for children and teens and then in 2017 I trained with Yoga Campus to become a 200 hour qualified yoga teacher for adults. In recent years I have completed further training in Yoga & Somatics for Healing & Recovery and Somatics for Yoga Teachers with Charlotte Watts and both Trauma Sensitive and Trauma Informed Yoga with Trauma Therapy Manchester.
This further training has led me to teach yoga in a more therapeutic way; my teaching style is invitational and offers choices for mindful movement. All abilities are catered for and everyone is welcome. Trauma Informed Yoga sessions are designed to help build patterns of safety and disconnection in a supportive student-teacher relationship. These sessions include grounding, self-awareness and the use of techniques to help you to understand what’s happening in your body and your brain. No physical adjustments are used in classes.
