Episode 232: Trauma-Informed Yoga with Sarah Kadel

This is where the subhead goes where we talk about how you need to do your research and two other things 

Sarah Kadel | Trauma Informed Yoga

I’m so happy to have Sarah Kadel on the podcast today. Sarah is an Austin-based yoga teacher who is serving as a mentor teacher in Jason’s online advanced teacher training this year. I wanted to share her story with you because I think the world needs to hear her message about how yoga can be so helpful for those who have suffered with trauma in their lives.

Sarah shares:

  • How yoga helped her understand and move past addiction
  • What the newest body of research says about the neurobiology of trauma
  • Helpful tips for yoga teachers who hope to make their classes trauma-informed or more friendly for students with all types of trauma
  • What to look for (and what to avoid) when you are looking for a trauma-informed yoga teacher
