TESTIMONIALS

Randi "I truly appreciated the ability to learn & share from my lived experience as an Indigenous learner/practitioner. I was able to feel at ease & find space to explore & release what was not serving the highest & best version of myself. I intend to bring this forward while integrating a two-eyed seeing approach to my teaching. Thank you."
Lacey “This has been such an amazing experience. The incredible self-growth I’ve had has made it worth it and then on top of that the skills, tools, knowledge, and experience for my professional practice has been priceless and more than I’ve ever imagined. I’m so inspired to continue this journey and bring it into all aspects of my life."
Kalli  "This has been one of the best decisions of my life, not only in helping me grow into a yoga teacher, but helping me understand so much more about myself.  It's been such a valuable investment in ME, & the connections we've made as a group have been so incredibly nurturing and special."
David  
"Just say yes! 
The learnings, connections, self-growth and discovery that you will experience will change your life! Also, the absolute best teachers and faculty you could ask for!"

A MESSAGE FROM DR. MELISSA JAY

Dr. MELISSA JAY
she/her

Tân'si, Hello! 

Be who you needed when you were younger. This message guides me.

As a Nehiyaw member of the Métis Nation of Alberta, it is a joy to walk alongside incredible souls who are dedicated to self-awareness & community care. I honour my ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐍ Nehiyawe (Cree) culture, by sitting with Elders/Knowledge Keepers, and decolonizing myself by infusing spirit into everything.

As a psychologist & assistant professor, it is a privilege to decolonize community care and at the Trauma-Informed Yoga Psychology School it is a joy to collaborate alongside my inspiring friends who are faculty! 

With goodness,
Dr. Melissa Jay

My yoga credentials include: C-IAYT, E-RYT, RCYT, RPYT, YACEP

We cannot wait to learn and, most importantly, unlearn, with you!
