New Yoga School Offers Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Training

Oct 29, 2017 12:45PM

The Mibo School of Yoga is opening one of the first East Coast Trauma-Sensitive Yoga Training schools that includes classes, workshops and 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training programs. The school will also host weekly classes and serve the development of both new and experienced yoga teachers.

        Although the school is centered around personal intention and self-growth, its mission is to serve humanity as a whole. In particular, Mibo Yoga recognizes the need to bring love, light, laughter and healing to our country’s military personnel and veterans. The 501(c)3 Viva Standing Foundation’s Warrior Challenge is a continuing, 12-week Virginia Beach yoga and meditation class series designed for U.S. service members, especially those returning home from service overseas.

        Founder Jo Standing says, “Mibo is the meeting of the mind and body and the expansive human potential within each of us. We are each capable of our best only when we connect the mind and body with the intention of generating inner healing and personal development.” Standing is a recognized author and Harvard Faculty Club speaker on The Power of PTSD and Conquering Trauma Drama who travels often to speak. The next 200-Hour Trauma-Senstitive Yoga Training begins on February 2, 2018.

Location: Virginia Beach. For more information or to register for the training, visit
