Toby has over 16 years of experience working with children and families. While she has practiced yoga off and on for over a decade, Toby has been a devoted yogi for the past 2 years. She has attended a Little Lower Yoga Training in April 2017 and the Yoga to Grow Teacher Training in June 2018.
As a Clinical Social Worker and PhD Social Work student, Toby has long sought to bring the physical body into mental health treatment to providing healing and comfort. It has long since been her life’s work to bring the whole self forward for healing, by peeling off layers of stress and trauma so that we can reveal and remember the Truth of our being. In her professional experience, Toby is growing from individual and family work to group work and developing and researching Yoga and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy groups for youth.
Toby believes that yoga has the power to heal trauma, and nurture healthy relationships with self and others. Toby is practices yoga so that she may learn to accept personal responsibility on such a deep level that she becomes completely fulfilled by self-love. She is motivated to teach yoga to share this gift with others.
