Hala’s telecourse on “Healing Trauma and Managing Stress” offers a valuable resource to yoga teachers, therapists, and others in the helping professions. The conference call format is extremely convenient and affordable. Under Hala’s warm and skillful leadership, our three calls maintained a strong sense of group connection and individualized attention, despite the fact that participants are scattered across the globe. The course provided an excellent mixture of theory and practice, combining scientifically-grounded explanations of how trauma and stress affect the body/mind with opportunities for guided meditation, role playing, and personal reflection and sharing. I’m thrilled that such excellent teaching on this critically important topic is now so widely accessible! -Carol Horton, Author of Yoga PhD
