Sundara Yoga Therapy’s Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy trainings are broken into distinct levels.  Each level requires specific modules which are named after the elements – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. Our goal is to bring trauma informed Yoga Therapy disciplines to all manner of providers, whether they are new to their field, or are long standing practitioners. To this goal we offer three levels of certification. The higher the level, the more elements are required.

All Primary Faculty have achieved the highest level of experience and certification recognized in the Yoga Therapy and Yoga Teaching field; all are Certified Yoga Therapists with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT) and Registered Experienced Yoga Teachers at the 500hr level with the Yoga Alliance (ERYT500).  All faculty have vast experience working with individuals who have experienced trauma in many different settings.


Level I – $595 per Element if registering for one element at a time.

Level II – $595 per Element if registering for one element at a time.

Levels I & II – $1108 discounted amount if registering and paying for both levels at the same time.
