We Celebrate our Excellent Partner Studios
For the creation of outstanding community spaces

We are very selective about whom we partner with; our partners have the same selectivity. Therefore, we are honored to offer our in-person TIYT™ Trainings in the studios listed below. We share core values. Central to those values,  treating ALL community members with respect and dignity; whenever possible, their community members are addressed by name  - the studio staff take time to get to know their members. To be 'seen' and recognized is to be valued; this sets a foundation for creating a safe space for the practice of Yoga - a critical trauma-informed care principle.

To this goal, we offer three levels of instruction. The higher the level, the more elements are required.

Our Story

What is now called the Sundara Foundation's TIYT™ Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy training, started as a mentoring program in 2009 to keep up with the high demand for the "Overcome Anxiety Clinic" in Austin, Texas. The "clinic" became affectionately known as "OAnx" (pronounced "oh-anks"). OAnx is a program that evolved out of a protocol that was created as a holistic recovery program after a complete nervous breakdown (acute stress disorder), where one's nervous system is "hijacked" and one feels totally out of control. 

The OAnx program had astounding success, and therefore the demand continued to increase, including requests to offer the program in hospitals, wellness centers and institutions.  When the demand for the mentoring became too much for our founder to keep up with, the TIYT training was created so we could train a group, rather than one-on-one mentoring. The training has evolved over the years due to collaborations, faculty input and is now this robust program that you are embarking upon. The training is packed with clinical experience, knowledge, and the love of 800+ TIYT™ Collective members made up of Yoga, Mental Health, and Allied Medical Professionals.
