19MH004 - Subtle Yoga Teacher Training Certification for Behavioral Health Professionals: Teaching Yoga to Individuals and Groups

Description

"From a yogic perspective, there is a connection between your posture and your mood…with sustained practice you can shift your emotional baseline toward greater levels of happiness.” – Dr. Timothy McCall, Yoga as Medicine

The Subtle®Yoga Teacher Training Certification for Behavioral Health Professionals focuses on learning how to practice and guide clients through yoga breathing, postures, and meditation practices which can benefit mental health and emotional well-being. Participants will learn to teach safe, effective, accessible yoga practices to individuals and groups with a focus on sharing yoga with clients in behavioral health settings. Participants will be introduced to the basics of postures including alignment, anatomy and physiology, and learn how to adapt practices for an office setting.

The theory behind sequencing guidelines, which can affect behavioral health, will be presented. Participants will have the opportunity to practice teaching specific sequences for anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, addiction recovery, and chronic lower back pain – some of these sequences will be offered as “mat” classes, and some as “chair” classes. Particular emphasis will be placed on theory and practices which can create top-down/bottom-up integrated self-regulation as well as those which facilitate neuroplasticity and neurogenesis.

Participants will also explore Carl Jung’s interpretation of yoga psychology through his analysis of the “subtle body” or chakra system. Reference to yoga paradigms which inform about self-awareness, learning, communication styles, and ethical engagement will also be introduced.

A special price of $3,300 includes all Workshops in the 2018 / 2019 season, as well as the Teacher Training, however, it must be paid in full by 2/7/18.
