(Trauma-Responsive Innovations for Mind and Body)

Join Emily Peterson and Lynn Eikenberry for the next installment of women's only TIMBo this February.


FREE-INFO SESSION Tuesday, October 30th at 6:00 p.m. in Brookline!


This program runs on Tuesdays, November 6th, 2018 through March 5th, 2018 from 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. (16 sessions, 3 absences are allowed).




TIMBo combines simple yoga-like movements, relaxation breathing, guided meditation, and a workbook-based approach to explore and better understand the impact of emotions such as fear, guilt, shame, and grief. Research has shown that upon completion of one full TIMBo program, participants’ symptoms of depression, anxiety, and trauma (PTSD) are significantly lower. Not only this, but women score significantly higher on a measure of self-compassion after participation in the program as compared to before.

TIMBo facilitates personal growth that will help participants navigate life’s tensions through:

  • improved behavioral self-regulation through mindfulness
  • a self-compassionate understanding of human survival responses
  • social-emotional growth that promotes compassionate attunement to the self and to others
  • strengthening the sense of self and promoting confidence in relationships
  • developing a resilient worldview that enables participants to interact with life’s problems with composure and confidence

This program runs for eighteen weekly sessions, the first of which is an orientation.

Total non-refundable cost of the program is $450, plus an additional $15 for the workbook.

Co-led by Emily Peterson and Lynn Eikenberry this session meets Tuesdays 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m starting October 16th running for 16 weeks ending February 12th. (No class on December 25 and January 1)

Emily Peterson
Emily Peterson; TIMBo Instructor

Emily is a certified 500-hour yoga instructor, Usui Reiki Master, and licensed TIMBo facilitator and trainer. Formerly a competitive athlete, she began practicing yoga to manage chronic pain from injuries more than 15 years ago. While yoga was instrumental in her physical healing, Emily also discovered the power of yoga for practicing mindful acceptance. Emily's practice helped her learn to tolerate emotional discomfort and stop struggling to change the present moment, thus opening up space for healing. For Emily, yoga offered an important meditative practice and the experience of a safe connection to her body, which were transformative and led to personal healing from an eating disorder, depression, and trauma.

Emily has facilitated TIMBo groups both online and in person and has been an integral part of the TIMBo training team for the last year.

Emily holds a B.A. in Applied Psychology from University of Illinois-Chicago, where she began studying Buddhism and mindfulness, which are central to her life and to yoga.
