About The Instructor
Cami Codell (E-RYT, C-IAYT candidate) had her first experience with the yoga asana practice when she was 14, but it was shortly after she graduated Muhlenberg College that the spiritual practice of yoga “clicked” and cemented its place in her heart. After spending most of her life in the often competitive, high-stress performing arts world, the yoga practice in all its forms offered Cami what she calls an “embodied experience of enoughness”, which completely transformed her life, her path, and her perspective.
Cami completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center (Stockbridge, MA) in 2017, and has since gone on to complete trainings in trauma-informed yoga, pre/postnatal yoga, therapeutic yoga for children and families, yoga nidra, Reiki I, sound healing, Kabbalah yoga, mindfulness/wellbeing coaching, and more. She is currently making her way through the 1000-hour Advanced Yoga Therapist program with Breathing Deeply Yoga Therapy. Cami’s goal as a yoga therapist is to support kids and teens (and their families) who struggle with trauma, mental illness, and/or eating disorders, using the yoga practice to help them find peace in the way it has for her.
Over the last several years, Cami has taught yoga to different populations around the world, including in various locations in North America, Europe, and the Middle East. Cami specializes in trauma-informed therapeutic yoga for mental health, and has experience working with patients in residential psychiatric treatment.
Regardless of who she’s working with, Cami approaches teaching yoga with sensitivity to people of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and lived experiences, as well as with a profound respect for yoga’s South Asian cultural roots. As a trauma-informed yoga specialist, she firmly believes in creating a space that empowers bodily autonomy and choice, explores self-awareness without judgment, and reconnects us to our inherent divinity.
Cami knows from experience that often at the root of struggles with mental illness and trauma is a disconnect from our natural state of self-love. In a world that is constantly trying to convince us that we’ll never be enough unless we look a certain way, buy a certain product, achieve a certain goal, the yoga practice offers a much truer, more sustainable alternative: that we already have enough, we already are enough, and that we belong here, simply because we exist.
Working with Cami guarantees that she will show up for you with compassion, non-judgment, and unconditional support, meeting you where you’re at, and empowering you with the healing tools and wisdoms that are already within you.
