    * Generations of racism and an education system born from discriminatory policies have made clear that  Black, Indigenous, and People of Color students face greater obstacles to educational achievement. Coupled with the under-representation of BIPOC in the field of Yoga Therapy, SYT's BIPOC scholarship aims to mitigate these issues by providing financial support to increase opportunity for BIPOC community members to participate in our Yoga Therapy education programs.

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. It quickly evolved to a program to help manage withdrawal symptoms from SUD detox within recovery efforts. The applications and customizations have grown as we have added trained facilitators from all walks of life.  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.
