LifeBreath: Overall Purpose

Stress is one of the greatest challenges for people and may create difficulties that profoundly impact our connection with self and others. Stress ‘managed’ can be a source of motivation, deep creativity and change. Stress ‘unmanaged’ can be catastrophic.

Because chronic or overwhelming stress can disrupt every physiological function and contributes in significant ways to acute and chronic psychological and physical disorder including heart disease, immune disorders, pain syndromes, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and addictions.

Chronic stress has been linked to the six leading causes of death in America: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, substance abuse, gambling and suicide.” - American Psychological Association

“Stress is the underlying cause of 60% of all human illness and disease.” - American Institute of Stress.

LifeBreath offers a curriculum specifically designed to meet the growing demand for specialized trauma-informed mental health clinicians and yoga therapy instructors who wish to acquire the knowledge and skills that will allow them to bring yoga skills and iRest meditation to their own clients in a way that is safe, effective, and relevant.

LifeBreath training includes an additional curriculum focused on clinicians acquiring skills and resources to increase resilience and protect against compassion fatigue, vicarious trauma and burnout.

The LifeBreath training will cover 4 specific categories including:

Introduction to the Polyvagal Theory

Introduction to Integrative Restoration iRest Yoga Nidra: Caring for the Five Subtle Bodies

Exploring Thought Bombs: Cognition & Consciousness through the lens of Vedanta Philosophy & Contemporary Psychology

Practices to Deepening Polyvagal Flexibility & Tone

The LifeBreath training will include daily practices that are directly transferable to your clients including, yoga breathing exercises (pranayama) and iRest meditation.
