Introduction to Yoga-Informed Psychotherapy
Yoga is a systematic science for the integration of mind and body, and is an effective tool for working with anxiety, depression and trauma. Many of the popular mind/body methodologies today draw their wisdom from the two-thousand year old teachings of yoga.
In this one-day workshop, we will introduce yoga as a method
for working with the mind and body. We will explore the science
behind why yoga works and introduce experientially the aspects
of yoga that we have found to be highly effective in working with
clients in a mental health context. Yoga will be explored as the
most ancient of the body-centered psychotherapies.
Two possibilities to attend:
Sunday, January 21. 10:30am - 5:30pm
Friday, January 26, 10:30am - 5:30pm
$150 before Jan 14 & Jan 19; $175 after
Bodies Come To Therapy Too: Introduction to Body-Centered Psychotherapy
Traditionally, psychotherapy has been focused on thinking and emotions. What has not been recognized is that emotions happen in the body, and thoughts are heavily influenced by the state of the nervous system. Body-centered psychotherapy gives practitioners the tools they need to influence emotions at their origin, and directly affect the state of the nervous system.
This workshop will give an introduction to the use of somatic awareness through Yoga-Informed Psychotherapy and Somatic Experiencing, and provide practitioners with some basic interventions that they can begin using right away.
