Kristiana Henderson. When I practice yoga, I focus on listening to my breath, bringing my mind to the present moment and doing what feels right for my body at that time.  I have firsthand experience of how yoga heals.  I have felt it ground me from dissociation, calm an anxiety attack, and I am getting more interception/ability to feel my body.  I have always had a love of psychology and I am fascinated by how the brain works!  I began teaching yoga in the summer of 2017 and my initial 200 hour yoga teacher training was in the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga style.  It emphasizes three things: asana or yoga postures, meditation, and inquiry/self-transformation.  I have also completed a trauma-focused training in GreenTree with Yael Calhoun and a weekend workshop on iRest yoga nidra presented by Richard Miller. I am currently enrolled in a 300 hour course to become a facilitator of Trauma Centered Trauma Sensitive Yoga.    kristianahenderson.blogspot.com
