Description

Overview: This 3 hour experiential workshop will explore the benefits of using yoga, in
conjunction with play therapy techniques, as a way to help children become more self-aware,
improve self-control, practice mindfulness, learn new relaxation skills, and build self-confidence.
Playful breathing techniques, child-friendly yoga postures, yoga games, books, and guided imageries
will be explored. Ways to incorporate kid friendly yoga in individual therapy, family therapy, group
therapy and the classroom will be explored. The scientific rational for using yoga to help treat
mental/behavioral health issues will be discussed. Examination of videos, games, and books, along
with the actual practice of kid friendly yoga sessions will help participants gain the knowledge and
confidence to incorporate yoga into their play therapy practice. This is an interactive workshop so
dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat or towel.
