In this episode, I had the opportunity to interview Jess Taing. Jess is a yoga teacher based in Vail, CO, and also a student in our 800 hour yoga therapy certification program. Jess is a first-generation Cambodian American and she shared her story with us. Specifically she spoke about how inherited family trauma has impacted her life. We also discussed her experience of assimilation as a first generation Cambodian American and the impact it had on her search for belonging, connection, and Self. We talked about her “lived experience” and what that means, and she shared how much yoga has positively impacted her life.
