Kintla Yoga Therapy®

Trauma-Informed Yoga Therapy Programs in UnitusTI

The primary goal for me [of KYT] with populations of survivors of severe trauma is to teach them skills that they’ll have for a lifetime. Skill sets that build internal resources, help them to reduce their own suffering, to take back some personal power, and to begin to take steps forward to be productive, positive influences within their communities.

Our mission is to educate, to teach and to empower all human beings who have experienced chronic stress or trauma in any form with compassionate and well-researched yoga and mindfulness practices.

What are the Kintla Yoga Therapy programs?

The Kintla Yoga Therapy® program is a trauma-informed, evidence-based, heart-centered, and choice-driven yoga therapy designed to empower healing in all trauma survivors, including those suffering the effects of chronic stress, PTSD, C-PTSD, and Secondary Traumatic Stress.  The program offers cloud-based training and tools for professionals who want to incorporate trauma-informed yoga therapy into their mental health therapy sessions.  

The Kintla Yoga Therapy® Disaster Distress Relief program offers post-traumatic growth.  A trauma-informed, evidence-based, heart-centered, and choice-driven yoga therapy designed to empower healing in people experiencing emotional distress associated with natural or man-made disasters, including those suffering the effects of traumatic stress and secondary trauma. The program offers cloud-based tools for in-the-moment implementation by professional providers as well as volunteers in times of crisis. 


Our researched programs, developed over 30 years, taught and practiced by Kintla Striker, international lecturer and yoga teacher, empower the achievement of balance in mind, body and spirit.

 

Who are the programs for?

The Kintla Yoga Therapy® and Kintla Yoga Therapy® Disaster Distress Relief programs are designed for mental health practitioners who work in trauma-related fields.  Any discipline that addresses the challenge of clients with mental and emotional disorders can benefit from trauma-informed yoga therapy.

Kintla Striker, creator of Kintla Yoga Therapy®, came to Houston to teach trauma-informed yoga to victims of Hurricane Harvey. I learned a series of empowering practices from Kintla, including breathing exercises, mindfulness techniques, and mindful movement. I may have started our session as a hurricane victim, but I ended up a warrior with a new lease on life, my job and my family.

I highly recommend Kintla’s trauma-informed yoga therapy program.

Why should you use them?

Trauma can cause a significant disconnect between the mind and the body.  Trauma-informed yoga therapy is specifically designed to address this mind-body disconnect in individuals who have suffered trauma, and is becoming widely recognized as an effective way to create a healing environment for trauma based clients, allowing them to reconnect to their bodies, calm their minds and regain a sense of safety. The Kintla Yoga Therapy® and Kintla Yoga Therapy® Disaster Distress Relief programs give you the tools and training you need to incorporate simple trauma-informed yoga practices into your therapy sessions for cutting-edge therapy. 

The intention of Kintla Yoga Therapy® is to empower individuals to see their own light, to heal and reconnect body-mind-spirit/breath, to feel, to increase confidence, to find peace, to re-discover joy, and to move forward with concrete tools–wholeheartedly embracing every aspect of being fully present and alive for the rest of their lives.
