Yoga Teacher Training Facilitator
Ruth is a Yoga Therapy teacher who specializes in using a trauma-informed approach in her classes and individual sessions. Originally from Michigan, traveling around the world continues to be a huge passion of her life and what has inspired me to discover the holistic ancient roots of yoga in the last 10 years. Ruth graduated from Colorado State University with a Masters in Social Work and is currently a clinical license candidate working as a medical and community social worker. Ruth looks to use yoga as a way to mindfully bridge the mind-body connection working with trauma survivors who are healing and as a tool for social justice in the community.
Ruth’s intention is to provide people a safe and empowering opportunity and space to come to their mats to move their bodies, heal their minds and discover the power of their breath.
Ruth has trained as a Reiki Master in shamanic practices in the sacred Andre mountains of Peru and has taken a Tibetan bowl sound healing training in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal. She received her 200-hour training with an Ayurveda focus at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala through School Institute Yoga. Her trauma-sensitive yoga training was completed through Nosara Yoga Institute in Costa Rica, The Breathe Network, Street Yoga, and Veterans Yoga Project in Chicago. Ruth holds a 500-hour Yoga Therapy training in which she trained out of Siem Reap, Cambodia. Ruth has taught yoga in 25 different countries and now teaches and trains as a yoga therapist through her healing practice called Breathing Room.
Ruth believes it is an honor and a joy to learn and grow with different teachers, Masters, healers from around the world. She is also grateful to all her teachers and the students that she comes across on her journey path. As we all open our hearts to grow and heal–we also bloom together.
