Trauma Sensitive Yoga

eMBER™ -

Mindfulness Based Emotional Resilience

EMBER is a mindfulness-based resilience training geared specifically toward men and women rebuilding their lives after experiences of trauma. Created by Marybeth Hamilton and Michele Vinbury, yoga teachers with a longstanding commitment to bringing tools of personal transformation to underserved communities, it is designed to be implemented in recovery programs, halfway houses, yoga studios, prison reentry programs, and therapeutic communities.

At its core, EMBER’s aim is simple: to provide tools to help people feel at home in their bodies. During the 12-week training, the curriculum builds community while developing the foundations of resilience: the capacity to bounce back from difficulty by drawing on inner reserves of calm, clarity, compassion, and courage.
