Bio: Halli Jastaran Faulkner teaches healing yoga workshops for women who have experienced sexual assault and abuse. As a survivor herself, Halli has spent the last seven years studying how to use the tools of movement, breath, and mantra to help herself heal. Her Woman Warrior workshops use these same tools to create a safe space where students tap into their own innate healing power. Halli first learned about yoga in her high school gym class in upstate New York and has been practicing and learning ever since. In 2014, Halli moved to Los Angeles and was first trained in Kundalini yoga by Krishna Kaur and then trained in trauma-informed yoga by Kyra Haglund. She then started creating Woman Warrior workshops for survivors while going deep into her own process of healing from sexual trauma and post-traumatic stress. Halli has also spent some time in the formal academic world – earning her Master’s degree in education from Loyola Marymount University and her law degree from the George Washington University Law School, then working in education policy for over a decade. Halli is honored to have taught Woman Warrior workshops for sexual assault survivors in cities including Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, New York City, Washington, D.C., and Rochester, New York. And she's grateful to spend her down time at home with her beautiful wife, Rachel.
