Overcome unworthiness by addressing your relating to find true love & GROW AS A HEALER.

Are you ready to face relational trauma?

You know, interpersonal trauma like codependency, domestic violence, sexual assault, love addiction, motherhood/attachment issues.

Without living in blame or denial patch-working recovery?

Here's exactly what you want, but can't seem to find:

 Research suggests a combination of talk-based and somatic therapy is the gold standard to support the release implicit memory in the body.

3. RELIEF

Not the ego-driven kind-healthy self-confidence that rises above the tyranny of shame & self-hatred inherent in complex trauma.

1.Self love

You've been driven by disenfranchised grief and loneliness. You're worried something is inherently wrong with you & recovery is impossible.

2. Belonging

When you know how to acknowledge the shock, freeze, rage, grief and injustice around your experience, you will no longer replay your feelings of hurt over and over and over.  You will no longer move towards people who repeat these patterns with you, and you'll find that the process for this is actually very simple.

Join me between the church and the yoga studio to overcome childhood trauma & betrayal.

...explore, take back, and adapt new age practices while honoring Jesus and the Bible. Amanda is amazing! So approachable, kind, and supportive. She's eased so much shame & guilt for me!"

- Yolanda, Called student

"amanda is someone who i trust to help me...

I remember the chaos of the early days quite well. 

  • Why don't my relationships 'work'?
  • Where is God in all of this?
  • Is there something inherently wrong with me?
  • How do I get off the treadmill of grief?
  • How can I answer the call on my life?


Needing guidance & support as a trauma survivor...

BUT I DID WHAT NO ONE HAD DONE BEFORE...I APPEALED TO THE AUTHORITY OF THE RESEARCH.

And now I get to show you how to do the same thing. 

I've been there...

What if you could heal the way you show up in relationship?

This is an 8 module online, self-paced video training where I teach you how to stop family trauma and heal God-attachment with lay ministry.

Get clear on how to heal (yourself & others) from the pain of codependency

Speciality Devotional Yoga Training

Certified in:

Certified in:

You've been called to healing work, but the initiation of your personal recovery from relational trauma is already inefficient and all-consuming. You recognize that you can only help others to the extent you've done your own healing.

THe only problem?

yep - you're in just the right spot!

Oh, and...JUST SO WE'RE CLEAR:

      You want to serve (& heal)... 

Like you feel self-confident as a practitioner while healing yourself first.

with ease

With over 20 years of experience as a fellow traveler on this path, I'm here to help you grow into equal parts unapologetic Christian mystic and trauma-informed expert researcher on this topic.

Because the reality is....you'll need to become versed in transpersonal (integral) psychology's heartfelt understanding of human consciousness alongside rooting all that ancient spiritual wisdom into a practical framework of recovery based in empirical research.

Hi, I'm Dr. Brees, Ed.D, C-IATY, APD, E-RYT 500, YACEP, RMT, MATP
Devotional Yoga Therapist, Pastoral Counselor & Meditation Researcher

i''m your professor!

Whether you're a faith-based yoga teacher or a lay minister, clients and students need you to be able to succinctly integrate faith, meditation & trauma to heal relational trauma.

And I know some of you are thinking, "Okay, Amanda, but I've already done a bunch of healing work!"

So glad you mentioned it. This is why it's time to stop patch-working the work and create:

  • A place where you don’t feel like you need to appease people who hurt you or who don’t have your back.
  • A life where you stop attracting bosses, friends and partners who take up all the space and don’t give back to you. Instead, you have people who respect your boundaries and listen the first time! People who demonstrate genuine care, interest and reciprocity in your relationship. 
  • And more importantly… YOU respect your boundaries, listen the first time and make space for yourself and God!
 
And that’s exactly what I want to teach you how to do.




Better Specialty = Less Inefficiency & More Effectiveness

let me tell you a little secret....

"I was impressed by her work ethic & extraordinary passion for this topic. I'd highly recommend Dr. Brees!"

Actually be in your body and listening to your nervous system signals, so you can hear your instinct when it wants to signal your ‘No!”


Strengthen self-confidence & find the courage to be a cycle breaker in your family lineage through practical shamanic methods

How to stop the fawn response you move into trying to please a person in order to avoid conflict developed when a parent was abusive

Followed the steps I teach in the course to:

can you relate?

1. Devotional Yoga Therapy & Traumatology

Evaluate the scope, history & theology of yoga as meditation that has been adapted by many religions over thousands of years through the lens of cultural appreciation in the Yoga of Relationship™ method. We'll also cover interpersonal violence (ie: DV, sexual assault, attachment trauma, addiction, etc) and how to dearmour the pelvic floor through trauma-informed yoga therapy & dance/movement.

FULL program breakdown:

2. Yoga Teaching & Philosophy in Yoga Therapy for All-levels

Assess chakra-based yoga meditation for God, self, and other; learn how to integrate faith-based and interfaith approaches to relational trauma recovery. Survey the teaching & theology of yoga as meditation. We'll address the mother wound and reconnect to your womb through Ayurvedic/herbal wisdom rooted in biblical clarity and reconnection to the mother heart of God.

3. Psychology and Mental Health for Yoga Therapists & Practitioners

Analyze subtle anatomy and theory alongside a how-to practice library of yoga therapy practices to use with clients; Assess the business aspect of meditation through the Yoga of Ministry embedded training. We'll talk about the energetics of releasing past partners/relationship within your pelvic bowl, connecting with one's children/addressing parenting as central to healing one's own inner child, conscious parenting, etc.

4. Ayurvedic Eco-Spirituality and Herbalism for Yoga Teachers & Therapists

Specialize in a grounded theory of faith-based and interfaith yoga therapy for codependency, love addiction, motherhood, traumatology, chronic trauma, betrayal trauma, relational chaos, and addiction. We'll learn how trauma is stored in the pelvis as numbness & pain rooted from sexual assault & codependency.

5. Yoga and the Mind in Bhakti Yoga & Ministry

Learn yoga therapy ethics, legalities, and personal and professional development skills alongside group skills, cultural issues, and trauma awareness in working with diverse populations facing mental health concerns. We'll overview a myriad of pertinent somatic interventions (craniosacral, myofasical release, reiki, shamanism, eco-therapy, massage therapy) as they apply specifically to practitioners looking to specialize in their use for trauma.

6. Framework for Health & Disease in Yoga Therapy

This course prepares yoga therapists to assess relational trauma and provides yoga therapists with the in-depth knowledge of techniques to advance their practice with the latest research to support their clients. Creative expression (aka: art therapy) involves a synthesis of barre, yoga, dance, and contemplative arts as a means of releasing stored trauma and connecting with the Divine. The devotional arts are an integral part of recovery.

7. Practicing Presence, Subtle Anatomy & Complex Trauma

Complementary therapies in yoga therapy for attachment trauma, familial trauma, betrayal trauma, inner business resources, yoga of ministry, chakra anatomy, appropriation, & business ethics for yoga therapy. Learn how to release guilt & shame that lives in the autonomic nervous system. Understand the energetic practices of yoga therapy and how the heart regulates the amygdala and entire parasympathetic nervous system.  Learn polyvagal theory and how it relates to the fawn and freeze responses.

8. Providing Yoga Therapy, Ethics, Personal Growth, and Legalities

This module's topics include yoga therapy for grief, attachment, ethics & business, kriya, akashic records, working with the ancestor from yogic philosophy, jyotish, guided journeys, yoga nidra, and dance as yoga therapy. Acknowledge the betryal wounds of the past that impact your ability to access life & love in the present. Learn how to begin to trust yourself and others again.

Do I have to be a Yoga Therapist to attend class?

No, all are welcome, but the course is approved for 50 hours of APD with IAYT. It's also a complete recovery program too. The course is taught from a faith-based perspective. The tools are most ideally built to help you grow your own complementary therapy lay ministry at your church where Christian spirituality is an integral part of faith and recovery instead of seen as a second-class spiritual system.
