Event description

Description

This program will cover the basic history of yoga as a philosophical system, the types of classes available in many communities today, and how to integrate the therapeutic benefits of yoga into a clinical counseling practice. An overview of research will be presented on the effectiveness of yoga on health in general and specific populations, especially those who have experienced trauma. The presentation will include experiential components of mindful breathing and simple postures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a basic understanding of yoga as a philosophical system and how physical postures fit into this system

  • Identify ways in which yogic teachings coincide with cognitive therapies and mindfulness approaches

  • Learn about the risks, rewards, and potential triggers involved in referring clients to community yoga classes

  • Identify ways to incorporate yoga into counseling, and the research and resources available to help guide this process

  • Engage in a short practice to experience the effects of yogic breathing and movement
