Pre-Conference at SYF2014
Teaching Yoga Teachers to Work with Veterans
At SYF2014, in partnership with the Give Back Yoga Foundation, we are offering SYF Gives Back 2014 – Mindful Therapeutic Yoga Practices for Veterans, a 2-Day pre-conference intensive training for yoga teachers. We chose to partner with Give Back Yoga Foundation because of their total dedication to making yoga available to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the transformational benefits of this powerful practice. This training will provide participants with specific tools and practices developed through clinical experience working with veterans coping with post-traumatic stress and other psycho-emotional stress. While benefiting trauma patients safely and comfortably, the training can be helpful for yoga teachers working with anyone dealing with stress and other psychological difficulties.
The Give Back Yoga Foundation has assembled a faculty of leading experts for this training, all who have been working continuously for years with veterans in their recovery process from post-traumatic stress. Participants are offered complimentary access to the Sedona Yoga Festival through Saturday and Sunday, as well as post-conference offerings to help build networks and strategies for bringing back out into the world that which was realized at this inspiring and transformative event. RYTs may earn CEUs for this training in association with our partner in Education, the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts.
This training will be held at the beautiful Sedona Creative Life Center and will serve high vibe, organic, farm to table cuisine for breakfast and lunch. Chef Chris Holden’s food will provide you all the sustenance you need to manage this huge offering, and is included with registration.
