    Thank you for your article in Natural Awakenings, September issue. In your article Deep-Healing Yoga Release Trauma, Build Resilience you mention “‚ĶBoston’s Mind Body Institute‚Ķ”. I have done a web search and found only the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Mass General. Is this the organization you are referring to. I am from Oklahoma City, OK and was visiting Dallas,Texas and picked up the magazine. I am interested in a certification in this type yoga to add to my education/certifications. Getting referrals to reputable organizations is so very helpful.

    I appreciate any information you can provide that will direct me further in my personal development in this area.

    Hi Sarah, I read your article on deep healing yoga to release trauma and build resistance in the Natural Awakenings magazine. It was very informative. Thank you so much. Are you aware of anyone doing this type of yoga in Canton, Simsbury, Avon areas of Connecticut?
    Thank you

    Dear Sarah,
    I read your article in Natural Awakenings. I’m very interested in finding a deep-healing yoga program in my area. I live in Houston. Do you have any contacts out here that might recommend something at least, similar? I’d so appreciate it. Thanks for your insight.
