“The Kintla Yoga Therapy program [on the UnitusTI cloud] is the most comprehensive, evidence-based, resource for best-practices in treating trauma that I have seen. For service providers, the programs offered here are customized individually to help address patients’ unique needs—a feature so important, as everybody responds to trauma differently and there is no one-size-fits-all method for treatment. For those receiving treatment, the Kintla Yoga Therapy program offers clear, detailed guidance for practices recommended by the service provider that allows for patients to take the reins of their own healing in a safe and empowering way. These programs are an essential asset to both service providers and patients in healing the effects of trauma and chronic stress.”

“Kintla has been a great resource and colleague. She is extremely knowledgeable, skilled, and wonderful to work with. She is naturally curious about her practice and the science that could contribute to better understanding of how yoga and related practices work and how they produce the salutary benefits many people are now coming around to acknowledging and accepting.”

“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 body work, yoga and breathing exercises.”

“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.”

“I have been so blessed to have met and worked with Kintla on my healing journey. I have never met such an inspiring and wonderful soul who is so genuine about helping others. I remember telling my family that Kintla is the kind of person who can see into your soul and read you like a book…in the best way possible. She has not only been an inspiration but a wonderful supporter of my healing. 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.”

“I wanted to take a minute to let you know how grateful I am for the gift of your time, your energy, and your sensitivity that you have chosen to share with me. It feels like someone finally understands. And it’s not only that it feels like you understand, but that you’ve been through the fire yourself, and yet you are still willing to brave the flames again to offer your help…so I will say both, ‘Thank You’ and a very heartfelt ‘Namaste’.”

“I have taken several classes with Kintla when she was running the yoga to live music classes [guitar, cello and/or violin]. Each of them was a total gift. The yoga and music blended together effortlessly, and I walked out of each class more together, more focused and more blessed for the experience. Thank you Kintla. Namaste’!”

“I have attended several of Kintla’s yoga classes throughout the years, and it is always a beautiful, spiritual experience! This is beyond yoga for strength, fitness, peace, or relaxation……her classes bring healing on every level of my Being, and transport my consciousness to an expanded place where clarity and One-ness merges with my physicality! Kintla is a gift and a blessing in my life……and she lets Universal Source Energy guide everything that she says and does. Thank you Kintla!”

“Kintla Striker, creator of Kintla Yoga Therapy®, came to Houston to teach trauma-informed yoga to victims of Hurricane Harvey.  I learned a series of empowering practices from Kintla, including breathing exercises, mindfulness techniques, and mindful movement. I may have started our session as a hurricane victim, but I ended up a warrior with a new lease on life, my job and my family.

I highly recommend Kintla’s trauma-informed yoga therapy program.

— TRAINING —

Kintla Yoga provides an in depth and comprehensive workshop for yoga teachers wishing to deepen their understanding of therapeutic and trauma sensitive yoga. Beginning with the components of trauma including safety within the body, the workshop invites the yoga teacher to empower healing in trauma victims. Kintla shares her approach to therapy with an emphasis on heart centered, choice driven, and mindfulness based practices.

I highly recommend the workshop and can’t say enough good things about the training. Kintla engages those who work in trauma with personal and professional experience bringing passion to trauma sensitive yoga.

The two days go by quickly and participants are left with a thirst to learn more. It’s an incredible experience and I’m already looking forward to more workshops in the series and working towards full certification.”
