Speaking Engagements and Collaborations

Speaking Engagements

Kintla has conducted speaking engagements and presented workshops both nationally and internationally. Topics range from mindfulness in everyday life and self-compassion in chaotic times to in-services for mental health practitioners and educational talks on the effects of trauma and implementation of Kintla Yoga Therapy.

Kintla’s background, research, and experience working with combat veterans and survivors of child abuse/neglect, sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking, cancer and medical trauma coupled with her deep understanding of brain/body healing make her an ideal candidate to speak to audiences of all types that simply wish to learn how to move through life with more ease, as well as audiences of medical and mental health professionals that wish to learn more about empowering healing in trauma survivors.

“Kintla, I want to thank you for your amazing yoga workshop last week. It was a very powerful experience for our survivors. I am hoping that we can continue to partner with you in the future. 

I truly appreciated your vulnerable leadership and compassionate approach.

I know that most of the survivors I have the privilege of working with would benefit from bodywork, yoga, and breathing exercises.”
