In this week's episode, Billy and Brian ask pediatric operating room nurse and trauma-informed yoga instructor Marie Nutter:
--A lot of our season has focused on reinventing ourselves after facing tragedy or trauma, and your story follows that same script. Can you share with us your journey to healing and reinvention after the death of your twin brother?
--From that experience came the Human Healing Project, so tell us more about what that is and what your mission/goal is.
--As we mentioned, you work in health care during the day and at night you teach yoga. You recently launched MN Yoga, and your goal is to teach trauma-informed yoga and meditation classes to health care providers, first responders, veterans among others who battle daily secondary trauma accumulated from enduring a career where you have to disconnect yourself to literally save others. What is trauma-informed yoga, how does it differ from the yoga we might take at a CorePower, and why do you see a need for this?
--On your web site you say, “I am not an expert in healing, psychology or philosophy. I am, however, a human being who is finding expertise in my lived experience, and who is choosing to turn my own healing project into a universal crusade of love.” I think that’s a powerful statement because it connects to what we discussed with Jodi Pfarr about understanding one’s experiences. Tell us more about how your lived experiences are guiding your universal crusade of love.
