18MH020 - Subtle Yoga for Trauma Recovery: A One Day Introduction (Snow Date: February 15, 2018)

Description

Subtle® Yoga incorporates ethical engagement, breathing techniques, healing movement, meditation, and other practices which can improve mental health, and foster resiliency in the body and mind. In this workshop participants will learn basic yoga practices to improve the symptoms of trauma, including brief interventions for self-soothing and grounding, and longer terms strategies for befriending the body, regulating the nervous system, and moving toward self-regulation and empowerment.

Research findings on the efficacy of yoga for PTSD will be presented, including understandings of how yoga recruits neuroplasticity to effect healing through both top-down and bottom up strategies. The benefits of yoga in clinical settings will be explored. Opportunity to practice yoga during the workshop will help participants learn to utilize basic skills to help improve client outcomes and for clinician self-care.

Subtle® Yoga is an exceptionally adaptable approach to yoga practice which is person centered and can be tailored to clients with differing abilities. It fosters the development of attention and mindfulness and promotes spiritual development in the context of any belief system. Please wear comfortable clothes to move in and dress in layers. You are welcome to bring a yoga mat.

“It’s interesting that right now there are about six to ten million people in America who practice yoga… They’ve discovered that there’s something they can do to regulate their internal systems.”
- Bessel van der Kolk, MD author, The Body Keeps the Score
