Course Description:

A five-day intensive training for yoga teachers, counsellors, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals. Learn practical and accessible tools that you can use with groups and individuals to alleviate trauma and symptoms of PTSD, stress, anxiety, addiction and other mental and emotional imbalances. Practical sessions of chair yoga, restorative yoga, mindfulness practices and gentle movement will combine with theory sessions, so the science of these practical applications can be understood through the latest findings in neuroscience and medical studies.

Participants don’t need to have a background in yoga but experience in a mindful movement practice would be a benefit (e.g. yoga, Kum Nye, authentic movement or tai chi). Teachers and mental health professionals will learn safe, effective body-based practises they can use as self-care, and with groups and individuals to support a calmer nervous system, better body awareness and increased emotional regulation.
