I want to hold space for us to hang up the protective armor from natures elements & honor the ways it has helped us, while also remembering how to become vulnerable & love ourselves with FIERCE COMPASSION!!
I believe that when we heal ourselves, we heal our family & ancestors."

COLLEEN BELL E-RYT
Collen is a trauma sensitive yoga teacher having studied Emotional Wellness for Yoga under the guidance of the expert teachers at Phinney Ridge Yoga and many other trainings.
"I have been practicing yoga for almost 20 years and love the self awareness and healing that yoga has helped me find. Even something as simple as the breath can change my mood. I have lived with depression, anxiety, and feelings of not being "good enough" for a big portion of my life. As a trauma survivor, I experienced shame around the abuse, until I developed the self confidence to realize that I had nothing to be ashamed of. The healing process has been downright painful but so worth it! I share my stories (on Instagram & Facebook) as part of my healing but also in solidarity with others who may be experiencing similar things. I'm blessed to be on this path and so grateful to be able to share emotional healing through yoga, with others."
At the Madrona House, Colleen offers many workshops on moving emotions through the body.
