Welcome!

What is Kintla Yoga Therapy® (KYT)? 

KYT is an integrative treatment for chronic and traumatic stress, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD), and Secondary Traumatic Stress Disorder (STSD).

KYT was created and designed to heal chronic and traumatic stress at its origins, empowering individuals with embodied resources to move through the challenges of being human that may arise moment-to-moment, building new healthy responses and outcomes, supporting concurrent and subsequent psychotherapeutic and adjunctive therapies, as well as helping to facilitate post-traumatic growth.

WHO MAY BENEFIT FROM KYT?

KYT is available to all people across the globe regardless of body type, physical ability, age, gender identity, race or ethnicity. 

KYT has been successfully implemented with individuals and groups that have experienced chronic stress and traumatic events leading to traumatic stress, including sexual assault, human trafficking, combat trauma, incarceration, substance abuse, domestic violence, attachment issues, natural disasters, forced displacement (refugees), bullying, institutional and systemic abuse, cancer, medical trauma, chronic illness, auto accidents, child abuse and neglect, as well as the sudden loss of a loved one.

This is inspiring, life-affirming work, and I couldn’t be more grateful to be of service to others in this meaningful way. -Kintla
 
Kintla began creating and teaching KYT in 2009 after decades of working on her own healing as well as 30 years of contemplation and investigation of trauma and how we heal individually and collectively. It is part of her heart and soul, the culmination of a lifetime of experiences, study, healing, curiosity, imagination, adventure and learning, and it is her tremendous honor to share it with you! 
 

Kintla is passionate about creating a healthier, happier, more connected and heart-centered world by empowering healing and post-traumatic growth in individuals experiencing the effects of chronic and traumatic stress. Post-traumatic growth means we are better because of our experiences, not in spite of them and it’s a phenomenon that Kintla has witnessed again and again.  

The Kintla Yoga Therapy trauma-informed, evidence-based yoga therapy treatment protocol is accessible globally through the Unitus Therapy Intelligence cloud, which makes healing the origins of traumatic stress available to providers and clients in each moment, furthering the KYT mission to ensure mental wellness is recognized as a basic human need and that across the globe every trauma survivor has access to learning simple mind-body tools from an attuned, compassionate provider when traumatic stress arises.

 THERE IS A DEEP WISDOM WITHIN EVERY SURVIVOR that must be honored. – Kintla Striker

The intention of Kintla Yoga Therapy® is to empower individuals to see their own light, to find meaning in their experiences, to heal and reconnect body-mind-spirit-breath, to feel, to increase confidence, to find peace, to re-discover joy, and to move forward with concrete tools–wholeheartedly embracing every aspect of being fully present and alive for the rest of their lives.

You always make my heart smile. Thank you for always being kind and validating me, Kintla. I have not done it alone, you have been so instrumental in my healing. I’m not a hero, what I have been through so many others have been through. I just want to heal and be able to help others the way you have for me, and be a voice for others. You are my hero and inspiration, Kintla. You have been my light through my darkness. You have found something in me I couldn’t see, you made me believe.” She has a caring yet professional demeanor and never pushed me into doing something I wasn’t comfortable with. She truly understands how trauma affects another human being and I have learned so much more about myself and how the human mind and body interact. I highly recommend working with her to anyone, whether you think you like yoga or not, as Kintla is definitely a necessary player on your healing journey.
