We are born into a world of fatigue, stress and trauma.
Nervous system dysregulation is rampant in ourselves and in our clients.
Worse, is that our teachers, healers and parents are burnt out, overwhelmed and struggling to stay resourced.
When our leaders, healers and relationships are missing attunement and safety, it is hard to triumph over suffering and heal our planet.
I know how terrible this feels because I have experiences this my whole life.
If you’re holding a space and you don’t feel centred, at peace, confident and resourced, something needs to change quickly for yourself and your community.
Don’t fake it till you make it.
You have more tools than you know what to do with, to be honest.
You are ready and longing for "something that works".
Why is this situation so common? Equally prolific as stress, dysregulation and burnout, is the lack of a clear, simple framework that brings healing into coherence.
No matter how many incredible approaches you have learnt and experienced, healing will only snowball upward with crystal clear psycho-education, strong self-attunement and embodiment.
In this training you will learn how complex trauma comes into place, how to heal it and also how to facilitate Therapeutic Embodiment sessions. You can then create safe spaces that inherently offers healing and evolution to yourself and others, effortlessly.
Learning the Therapeutic Embodiment practice will empower you to facilitate the entire first part of the Functional Spirituality method for yourself and others: Healing. Change how you hold spaces in relationship and in service.
TEFT is here to revolutionise your healing practice personally and professionally.
Over 3 months in an intimate container with Ava, you will journey through guided practice sessions, group trainings, study and private mentoring.
You will learn:
1) What are the 4 different forms of trauma at the root of all suffering
2) Principles of Self-attunement and regulation
2) How movement and attunement creates Therapeutic Embodiment
3) How to facilitate incredible spaces in, both, everyday life as well as in service
4) How to offer Therapeutic Embodiment sessions for others and incorporate it into existing offerings
The result: a powerful healing journey that clarifies instead of complicates.
Spaces you hold are powerfully transformational, safe and optimised.

Her yoga journey started in 2008 when she tasted her first, sweet savasana at the end of a 90 minute hot yoga class.
Hooked on the Bikram practice, she practiced daily while completing her degree in philosophy at the University of Sydney.
In 2011, she completed her first 500hour yoga teacher training, along with her very first 10 day silent meditation retreat. She would follow this up with another 500hr YTT from Hridaya, countless yoga trainings, silent, dark and solo retreats, as well as teaching at both the Agama and Hridaya headquarters and worldwide.
In 2016 she moved back to Perth to open her studio Spanda School in Fremantle. Spanda School is the home of an open-hearted community of hundreds of yogis across W.A.
Her journey started with the fervent passion for awakening and non-dual liberation. However over the years her path has matured with a more functional approach that considers the wide-spread complex trauma that lies at the heart of almost every obstacle to happy, healthy and connected living.
She has trained with Paul Muller-Ortega (Blue throat yoga), NARM (complex trauma), Cecily Milne (yoga detour) to name a few.
Ava is predominantly known for her thriving yoga studio, silent retreats and the phenomenal teachers that emerge from her yoga and trauma-informed certifications. She lives in beautiful Western Australia with her husband Jarred of Kommunity brew and their fur-child Honey.
