Celeste Mendelsohn is a certified yoga teacher with a special focus on working with people in recovery. Her personal experience motivated her to develop Yoga Tarana. She was affected by the trauma of her family’s addictions and that of others who also struggle with the disease. She used her own life experience to create integrated training modalities that are trauma aware, and trauma responsive. Her joy and passion has been teaching those recovering from addiction and their families to heal using yoga. Part of this journey involves re-educating people about the effects of stress and trauma on the body and the mind using physical practice, meditation and breath work.
