Subtle® Yoga for Behavioral Health Intensive: Anxiety and Depression

Description

Yoga offers a holistically oriented, cost-effective approach that complements current treatment strategies for mental health and substance use disorders. Murali Doraiswamy, MBBS, 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, person-centered approach to yoga practice which may be tailored to meet the needs of clients with differing abilities. It fosters the development of attention and mindfulness, and promotes spiritual development in the context of any belief system. Please dress in layers and wear comfortable clothing in which you may freely move. 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 of The Body Keeps the Score

This module includes 3.25 ethics hours!
