  • Trauma's impact on the chakras
  • How to bring balance to the chakras
  • How to do an intake or ongoing assessment with clients utilizing knowledge of the chakra system
  • How to support trauma healing utilizing knowledge of the chakra system
  • The overlap between the Eastern chakra system and Western vagus nerve neuroscience

✨Please note, as stated on the registration page, this course does not go over in detail, asana sequencing as it relates to the chakras. We offer that information in our coaching calls, available to TCYM alumni.
