DescriptionYoga offers a holistically oriented, cost-effective approach that complements current treatment strategies for mental health and substance use disorders. Murali Doraiswamy, a Duke University researcher who conducted a systematic review of yoga for neuropsychiatric disorders concluded, “The search for improved treatments, including non-drug based, to meet the holistic needs of patients is of paramount importance. If the promise of yoga on mental health was found in a drug, it would be the best-selling medication worldwide.” In this module, participants will learn basic Subtle® Yoga practices (including breathing, postures, and meditation) which they can share with clients to assist in mitigating depression and anxiety.
Participants will be able to identify the rationale for using holistic approaches, while learning effective Subtle® Yoga techniques to use in individual or group settings. Two hours of this module will be spent on the ethical frameworks of yoga including mindfulness, reflection on the use of one’s inner self in clinical practice, interpersonal communication, and decision making. The yoga model of ethics will be compared and contrasted with various mental health professional codes of ethics.
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.
