This is an experiential workshop designed for therapists, nurses, direct care staff, and social workers to learn simple Yogic techniques that foster self-regulation. Often clients come to therapy in a dysregulated state of either hypo or hyperarousal, especially those with PTSD and histories of trauma. They may appear to be participating in the therapy only to leave not having integrated some or all of the session. Learning to incorporate a handful of body-based tools into sessions will help participants:
Integrate strategies to help clients become more present, focused, and relaxed, not only in the session but in their daily lives.
Become more grounded, present and energized before, during, and after sessions.
Skills learned will include breathing techniques to match the client’s mood and help bring them into balance; basic yoga techniques that nurture greater self-awareness and well-being for therapist and client; use of sounds, tones, mudras and mantras, and much more.
NO YOGA EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. YOGA POSTURES ARE ADAPTED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF EACH STUDENT.
