We are so excited that throughout the month of August, we'll be sharing with you how some of our instructors have been able to intertwine their passions with God's purposes. Today, we feature Holy Yoga Instructor, Tina Harris, as she shares her #passionwithpurpose in her own words.

Our founder is taking a 500hr TT with Jim Bennit and James Tennant at @tejasyoga, the leading studio for tantric yoga and Ayurveda in Chicago. In Ayruveda, Garudasana or Eagle Pose is great for pacifying Vata dosha because it draws energy inward. At Salt and Light we use #garudasana to create grounding and help with trauma. #traumasensitiveyoga #ayurvedatherapy

I really wish that I had known about this book a few years ago! Such a helpful guide for those of us who have worked or do work with people experiencing trauma.
I particularly love this quote: "To participate in trauma stewardship is to always remember the privilege and sacredness of being called to help." I also find the five directions of stewardship really useful (scroll across). This framework has reinvigorated me to return to the field after some pretty hardcore burnout a few years back. 💙 #traumasensitiveyoga #traumastewardship

Morning yoga at #ANZAED2017 and an invitation to turn in, tune in & respond to your body's requests, without judgement or criticism.

Helping my human include trauma sensitive language into her lesson with students serving an alternative detention. Trying to be mindful but I want her to play with me and my squeaky toys. #dogsdoyogatoo #traumasensitiveyoga #mindfulness @breathe4change

Donations have been unpacked! Half of this pile is headed to the Humboldt County Corrections Center this week and the other half will be used for upcoming local trauma-sensitive yoga classes. Huge thank you to @omshalayoga and @paliyoga for donating props to the jail and to all the compassionate individuals who contributed to these programs. This is so incredible and exciting! #prisonyogaproject #traumasensitiveyoga #yogaforhealing #thisiswhatayogilookslike

👋🏽Hi! Its been a long while since anything tattoo relate has popped up on here,
To the questions about how tattooing seemingly vanished out of my life,
It did, and it didnt
As I stepped into the role of healing, i had to let go of a lot of things
Some permanently
some temporarily
Tattooing was one of them
Recovery became my full time job, living back at home, being cared for and not being able to leave the house became my reality
Time has passed now, and things are different
Im still not ready to step back into tattooing, it may never be able to be a regular part of my life
But it still lives in me, everyday I am grateful it is still a part of me I can access if I choose
Ive changed and my focus has changed, it does not mean my love for tattooing vanished
But new opportunities now allow me to fulfill a different need of helping others heal, and take themselves back from the grip of trauma through The practice of Yoga
Grateful for the understanding and compassion i received through these times
Grateful everyday for second chances and being strong enough to fight everyday to keep my head above the water

Please join me @openmindsfusionstudio tomorrow at 4 pm for a yoga practice sensitive to those who may have experienced trauma and/or may or may not carry trauma in their body.
While I don't have all of the answers, I do plan to share tools for practicing presence and grounding while together we explore a gentle yoga posture practice focused on healing the hips.
If money is an issue but you are interested, please reach out to me and let's talk. ALL are welcome, regardless of income, body, age, or any other variation of person. I would love to see you there! Yes, you!


With all the #metoo swirling around it can be empowering and totally triggering. It can stir up our own trauma pretty quickly and leave you feeling pretty helpless about what to do about it. This is a very well written article from a survivor about how she takes care of herself in the midst of these times. It's very much worth taking the time to read this if you're not sure what to do.

4-week Semi-private Therapeutic Yoga Series

Be One…Trauma Informed Yoga

Many of us have had a traumatic experience. Maybe it was a difficult pregnancy or birth, the loss of a child or parent, sexual or physical abuse, or a serious illness. Many studies have shown that our bodies remember and store these experiences. Often, this can have unintended emotional and physiological effects on the body.
Trauma Informed (Sensitive) Yoga provides a safe space to begin integrating mind, body, and spirit. Through the gentle movement, breath, and meditation, students learn healthy coping skills and ways to utilize those skills both on and off the mat. In trauma informed yoga, students are empowered to make their own choices.

Trauma informed yoga is not a substitute for clinical counseling, but can be an effective addition to therapy. Our Trauma Informed Yoga sessions can be taken privately or in a 4 week semi-private series.

Be One Yoga for Healing & Pain Management

If you suffer from chronic pain or are healing from a serious illness, a gentle yoga practice can help. Yoga has been proven to be a therapeutic practice that can help you to gently gain flexibility, strength, and mobility. Learning to connect the mind, body, and spirit through breath work, gentle movement, and meditation is also helpful for managing pain along with the anxiety and depression that come from living with chronic pain. Practicing yoga will empower you with tools to continue walking your healing journey. A variety of props, including a chair, will be utilized if/when necessary.
Be One Yoga for Pain Management can be taken privately by scheduling a private session here, or in a 4 week semi-private series.

Our next semi-private series begins in November.

All semi-private series at Be One Yoga are limited to 4 students to allow for a more personalized experience. Visit beoneyogapr.com/semi-private-series for more information. #beoneyoga #thebeonelife #semiprivateyoga

Entonces Jesús comenzó a decirles que el Hijo del Hombre tendría que sufrir muchas cosas terribles y ser rechazado por los ancianos, por los principales sacerdotes y por los maestros de la ley religiosa. Lo matarían, pero tres días después resucitaría. Mientras hablaba abiertamente de eso con sus discípulos, Pedro lo llevó aparte y empezó a reprenderlo por decir semejantes cosas.
Jesús se dio la vuelta, miró a sus discípulos y reprendió a Pedro: «¡Aléjate de mí, Satanás! —dijo—. Ves las cosas solamente desde el punto de vista humano, no del punto de vista de Dios».
Entonces llamó a la multitud para que se uniera a los discípulos, y dijo: «Si alguno de ustedes quiere ser mi seguidor, tiene que abandonar su manera egoísta de vivir, tomar su cruz y seguirme. Si tratas de aferrarte a la vida, la perderás; pero si entregas tu vida por mi causa y por causa de la Buena Noticia, la salvarás. ¿Y qué beneficio obtienes si ganas el mundo entero pero pierdes tu propia alma? ¿Hay algo que valga más que tu alma? Si alguien se avergüenza de mí y de mi mensaje en estos días de adulterio y de pecado, el Hijo del Hombre se avergonzará de esa persona cuando regrese en la gloria de su Padre con sus santos ángeles». -Marcos 8:31-38 (NTV) #thebeonelife #integridad #discipulado thebeonelife.org

Then Jesus began to tell them that the Son of Man must suffer many terrible things and be rejected by the elders, the leading priests, and the teachers of religious law. He would be killed, but three days later he would rise from the dead. As he talked about this openly with his disciples, Peter took him aside and began to reprimand him for saying such things.
Jesus turned around and looked at his disciples, then reprimanded Peter. “Get away from me, Satan!” he said. “You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.”
Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must give up your own way, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” -Mark 8:31-38 (NLT) #thebeonelife #wholenesswednesday #discipleship thebeonelife.org


Thanks to @therealyogadork for republishing my essay from yesterday. I was amazed by the social media outpouring from women (and men) of all ages.
What this all makes abundantly clear is that every single yoga teacher training NEEDS to have a trauma-sensitivity component. All these women who are sharing their #metoo stories? They’re in your yoga classes. And that pitch-black savasana or that unexpected adjustment might be the trigger that makes their experience miserable, rather than healing. 💗

✨The "Me Too" movement has been so powerful, inspiring and heartbreaking all at the same time. To see so many people step out and speak their truth has been incredibly profound and is sparking a wide variety of conversations in our community. 🌱🌿
Trauma is universal and when it's hidden in the shadows it has more power than when it's brought into the light. Within the light we can heal, connect, grow and learn from each other. ✨🙏 Thank you to all the people who have spoken their truth this week. May we all learn from this movement and may it begin to create ripples of healing and change in our communities. 🙏✨

It's a good day to love on some kids. You see fences and locks and gates. I come here because I love it, and I love them. If this is the only way I know how to show them Jesus, then let me be the tool He uses to give them hope for a future they can't imagine. #traumasensitiveyoga #traumayoga #prisonyogaproject #teenyoga #youthfocus #yoga #realliferealyoga #jesus

If you've spoken to me in the last two years, we've probably talked about the incredible work that #TransformationYogaProject does throughout the Philadelphia area providing #yoga and #mindfulness instruction to youth and adults in prisons, detention centers, recovery centers, Veteran treatment centers and more.
Working as a facilitator for TYP leading classes with youth and adults has changed my life, and was a step on a path toward a life dedicated to yoga service. Today I'm excited to take another step on that path working with TYP in a new capacity, as Grant Writer and Corporate Sponsor Development Manager.
If you work in development at a #Philadelphia area #nonprofit and you've come across a funding prospect that wasn't quite right for your org, but might be for TYP, please reach out!
If you work for a company (local or otherwise) that might be interested in giving back to the Philadelphia community by increasing TYP's ability to provide #yogaservice to more individuals, please reach out!
If you love Philadelphia, have an interest in evolving treatment for incarcerated individuals, or in providing #selfcare tools for individuals in #recovery, or for struggling youth, please consider donating to TYP today.

Alright y'all.
I'm rested.
Let's do this.
Narcissistic abuse.
When we talk about NA, we're not necessarily talking about an illness. Here, we're talking about an abuser, and one who can essentially be understood in two broad ways.•

🔴 A NA is someone who has grandiose views of self, but who cannot internally generate their own self-esteem. They may be successful, appear functional, and never admit these views. Regardless, deep down, they'll still feel like they're an unbeatable winner, perfectly desired, a perfect or perfectly happy person, a perfect caretaker, spouse or parent. They may believe they're superhumanly talented. They may believe they're God's chosen, favorite child. These beliefs are delusional, but they allow NAs to protect themselves from an inability to generate true feelings of self worth. Healthy people can recognize their own flaws, weaknesses, rejections, losses, and suffering, and still truly love themselves. If a NA were to see those things in his or her self, they would likely be filled with a self-loathing so intense and annihilating that the fabric of their existence would feel threatened. It would feel like a living death. 🔴 Because they cannot generate realistic self-love and need these fantasies so urgently, NAs acquire people who make them feel like their fantasies are true. They need other people to see them, respond to them and love them in an idealized way. They also typically don't understand the boundaries between other people's accomplishments and their own. If their friends and partner are talented, THEY are talented. If their partner is an amazing parent, then THEY are an amazing parent. If their children are successful, THEY are successful. Other people often become totally dehumanized in this dynamic, a mere means to this end. This is where abuse comes in. If a person acts entitled to hurt other people, and if they show a sustained pattern of emotionally, sexually, physically, or financially abusive behavior to force other people into roles that serve to maintain this kind of fantasy, then that is narcissistic abuse. It is exhausting, traumatic, and real.

And I think it's time to talk about it again.

Accepting the unacceptable is hard. After trauma, relationships change. Befriend your body as you practice self acceptance. Know you too are changing. It’s your choice in every moment who you choose to be.
