DescriptionA growing body of research demonstrates the efficacy of yoga for mental health, including the neurobiological benefits of this ancient practice. Healthcare is often delivered in a fast-paced, volume based context. During this one day workshop, participants will learn how to guide clients through several safe, effective, yoga-based interventions which can provide clients with tools for self-regulation, grounding and empowerment. With minimal training, athletic or physical capacity, most people can learn some of these safe skills. Healthcare professionals may begin to experience the powerful benefits and share these practices safely with others.
Subtle® Yoga is an exceptionally adaptable person-centered approach to yoga practice which may 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.
This workshop is a stand-alone event, and is also part of a series, leading up to an optional teacher training course to be held in 2019. Additional details included on the BROCHURE!
