Event description

Description


This is a 15-hour yoga teacher training, designed for therapists who want to use yoga as a modality to empower and support their child, teen, and adult clients. You will learn a series of Yoga Tools: mindfulness meditations, mudras, yoga breathing exercises, and yoga poses that have been proven effective for improving overall mental health. You'll also learn the psychology behind the chakra system and how we can address emotional presentations, informed by knowledge of this system, via the body.


You will participate in a practicum to practice teaching these Yoga Tools to your clients. There will be an optional, yet recommended, ongoing consultation group following the training so you can continue to develop your skills.


Dates: June 23: 2-5 p.m

June 24 10-5 p.m. (lunch, 1-2 p.m.)

June 25 10-5 p.m. (lunch, 1-2 p.m.)

Cost: $450 when paid in full by 5/12/17

$495 after 5/12/17

CE's: CE's will be provided for social workers, counselors and marriage and family therapists


By the end of the training you will be able to:


*Integrate the Yoga Tools into your clinical work with individuals, groups, families and couples


*Teach a gentle, basic, trauma-informed yoga class


More:

Talking is important, most of our clients benefit from learning how to express themselves more effectively through words, and much of the work that needs to be done requires that we listen and talk to our clients mindfully. And yet, the body is just as important in therapy. What we experience emotionally, we hold in our nervous systems and our body bears as much of the burden as our minds. For trauma in particular, as it is stored viscerally and visually, the body must be experienced. Yoga offers a gentle and compassionate entryway for body exploration.


Yoga is a practice that is somatic, mindful, and that has an underlying spirit of respect and compassion for self and others. It is these three components combined, I believe, that allow yoga to be such an empowering tool for our clients.
