Yoga Psycho-Therapy: Exploring Breathwork and Simple Postures for Breaking Through Both Resistance and Lethargy
Tuesday October 9, 2018
9:00am - 12:15pm
3 contact hours total:
- 3 NBCC credit hours
- The NCSAPPB accepts NBCC credit hours
This workshop is the first half of the day. The "Ten Emotional Regulation Skills" workshop is the second half of the day. You can sign up for just one, or sign up for both.
Yoga Psychotherapy will begin with contemplative psychotherapy utilizing both mindfulness and meditation skills for client and therapist healing. We will move to breathwork that elicits the relaxation response and emotional regulation. We'll learn 3 types of breathing that you may utilize the next day with your clients. We'll then learn basic chair yoga and a few basic mat yoga postures. We invite you to bring your mat. Weather permitting, we'll be outside but if not, we'll learn postures indoors. We'll utilize positive affirmation that you create and guided imagery for deep relaxation. These are necessary for supporting your client to move out of the limbic brain into the pre-frontal cortex where life's values are stored.
- Develop a basic understanding of yoga psychotherapy and how this wholistic science of breathwork and postures works to heal, body, mind, and Spirit.
- Learn and practice both breathwork and simple chair and mat poses for stabilization and quieting of the mind.
Snacks, coffee, water, and tea are all included!
We look forward to seeing you there!
