Guest Teacher Program
When “teaching” Yoga, we are not just guiding poses.
We are guiding people.
We are guiding nervous systems.
We are guiding complex and unique physiologies.
Each of us has a different orientation of how we perceive our own safety or lack thereof. Through a psycho-somatic understanding of Trauma and the ways it lives in the body, we can embrace the practice of Yoga in a way that permits each individual to have their own experience. Psycho-education around dissociation and disembodiment can give us the tools to not only understand our own physiology but the ways in which the inner worlds and trauma responses of the folks that we work with may differ from our own.
Jeanine Talento, E-RYT 500, is a Trauma-Informed Educator, Yoga Teacher Trainer, Emotional Freedom Facilitator & passionate writer. Jeanine believes in the power of healing through a reconnection to Self, authenticity, vulnerability, and an honoring of our unique human experiences.
A seasoned facilitator of 1:1 mentorships, Yoga Teacher Trainings, Retreats & Women’s circles, Jeanine brings a light hearted approach to Trauma Informed work that normalizes and releases shame around the difficulties of being human.
Jeanine’s yoga journey began in 2006 in New York City as a way to seek relief from mental health struggles including anxiety, depression, OCD and insomnia. Little did she know, the same perceived suffering that brought her to Yoga would be exactly what she alchemized into her power, purpose, and personalized offerings.
