Advanced Level Yoga Teacher Training w/Master Teacher – Ms. Dona Holleman

Dona Holleman studied with B.K.S.Iyengar in the nineteen sixties and seventies in Bombay, Pune and London. She was the first European to travel to India to study with him after meeting him at the Jiddu Krishnamurti Gatherings in Gstaad, Switzerland where she was a regular participant.  Many of the well-known present-day international yoga teachers were trained by her before they met  B.K.S.Iyengar. She holds a senior Iyengar certificate and is well known for the precision and understanding of the asanas. She is the president of the International Centered Yoga Association, and author of many books on Yoga, amongst others the bestsellers Dancing the Flame of Life and Centering Down,  classics used in many schools.  The course will be held by Dona Holleman in the English language and takes place in Soiano del Lago, Italy.

Somatic Experiencing® Training with Ariel Giarretto MS, LMFT, CMP, SEP in Asheville, NC

The Somatic Experiencing® method is a body-oriented approach to the healing of trauma and other stress disorders. It is the life’s work of Dr. Peter A. Levine, resulting from his multidisciplinary study of stress physiology, psychology, ethology, biology, neuroscience, indigenous healing practices, and medical biophysics, together with over 45 years of successful clinical application. The SE approach releases traumatic shock, which is key to transforming PTSD and the wounds of emotional and early developmental attachment trauma.  SEP Offers a framework to assess where a person is “stuck” in the fight, flight or freeze responses and provides clinical tools to resolve these fixated physiological states. It provides effective skills appropriate to a variety of healing professions including mental health, medicine, physical and occupational therapies, bodywork, addiction treatment, first response, education, and others.

Kate studied the work of Peter Levine from 1995-1997, receiving Certification in
Trauma Touch Therapy™.  She cannot wait to learn more from the SE™ Program!
