According to Zabie Yamasaki, Trauma Informed Yoga is, "[noun] an empowering yoga practice that prioritizes the lived experience and healing of a survivor. Safety, trust, choice and control are core components of the practice."
Each class that I teach is an invitation for you to become reacquainted with your Whole Self. You may notice that I don't cue you into postures, rather, you're invited into them. From there, you'll be offered the space to explore what you need from the shape and how you uniquely respond to it. My intention is for each person in my care to have a personal opportunity to be gentle with themselves, while learning to TRUST their bodies as safe spaces.
Slow down | Feel | Experience | Breathe
Whether our time together is in restorative yoga or a sweaty vinyasa class, we move SLOWLY, with the exploration of personal pacing and breath, so that we can experience ourselves in Yoga. By practicing this way, we FEEL our strength, hear our bodies, and learn to trust our intuition.
Private Sessions & Programs
Available Tuesday - Thursday, Saturday, 9am - 7pm PST | Zoom | Schedule Complimentary Consultation
Before a private session or program can be booked, a consultation must first be had, to ensure that what I offer can best serve you. During this process, which is done over the phone or Zoom, we'll have an organic conversation about intention and experience. From there, you'll receive a Sacred Contract, which will offer you another opportunity to share additional information. Once this is signed and returned, we can book your first appointment!
Both private sessions and private programs offer a unique opportunity for practitioner and client. We begin by calling in Great Spirit, guides, or simply settling in and connecting to intention and breath; and work with a variety of yogic-based techniques as intuitively guided, and based on prior consultation and/or sessions; as well as present needs and circumstances.
Some of these modalities include:
Kirtan, a musical chanting experience directed toward the heart of Love.
Yoga, going beyond asana, utilizing a more complete approach to the Eight Limbs encouraging body, mind, and heart alignment; while inviting homeostasis to the nervous system.
Somatic Experiencing with Guided Meditation, cultivating presence with body sensations and navigating them to uncover hidden fear, trauma, resistance, etc.
Trauma Informed Techniques such as resourcing, grounding, and learning techniques to self-regulate our nervous systems.

Thanks again for a wonderful workshop on Saturday. I realized after that a lot of things came up for me, so it was comforting to hold space with a lovely group of people that shared a similar desire toward learning more and having compassion for trauma survivors through yoga and mindfulness.
"I just wanted to tell you how much I really love your class. And most importantly how much I love you as my guide in helping me to receive what I need on my journey through life. I have only taken two classes, but the healing I have received is unbelievable."
Thank you for a most lovely & rejuvenating yoga and meditation class. Your genuine love & understanding of the Truth of all beings was evident."
"I have struggled with anxiety/depression for many years and yoga has been incredibly healing for me. Durga Dasi's classes are wonderful. I always leave feeling so much better about myself and the world around me. Her genuine and empathetic nature make her a truly amazing yoga teacher and human. Thank you for providing a safe place to gain confidence, strength, and courage. Namaste"
