Applying Subtle® Yoga in Clinical Practice

Feb 9–Feb 10, 2023 Mental Health

Applying Subtle® Yoga in Clinical Practice

Description

Yoga has been shown to reduce cortisol levels, depression, disordered eating, PTSD symptoms, chronic pain, and insomnia. It can also increase mindfulness, immune function, energy levels, and an overall sense of well-being. A history of the yoga tradition and its evolution in the U.S. will be reviewed to provide insight into yoga’s key theoretical principles and its relationship with behavioral health theory and practice. Moving from theory to application, participants will learn the neuroscientific underpinnings of the physiological and psychological connection between yoga and mental health. Research and skills to support the application of yoga across the spectrum of behavioral healthcare (treatment, aftercare, prevention, and health promotion) will be presented as well. Participants will learn how to implement accessible Subtle® Yoga techniques including postures, breathing, and meditation. Case studies on incorporating yoga into behavioral health will provide details on the practicalities of integration.

Subtle® Yoga courses are a unique offering of holistically oriented, mind-body behavioral health care. You are welcome to take any Subtle® Yoga modules on an individual basis (as multiple or sole trainings) or in any order, except for the Subtle® Yoga Teacher Training Certification for Behavioral Health Professionals: Teaching Yoga to Individuals and Groups (RYT200) which begins in Fall of 2023.

“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"
