With Janice Gates
13 November 2016 See all dates
Appropriate for both teachers and practitioners of yoga, this highly engaging and interactive day will be an opportunity to learn how to approach and tailor yoga practices for when we are ill, injured, anxious or needing to find more spiritual depth in our practice and in our lives. Yoga therapy is a rapidly growing field that directly addresses the suffering and fragmentation so many experience on a daily basis, offering a deeply holistic path to become free from duhkha (suffering) - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. During our time together, we will look at the philosophical underpinnings of Somatic Yoga Therapy and experience how the practice of yoga, supported by ancient lineages and informed by mindfulness, neuroscience and somatic psychology, can deepen and transform your own practice and teaching.
- Underlying yoga therapy models for healing
- Basic tools and practices in the yoga therapist tool kit

- Simple but potent practices tailored to those attending
- Interactive practice dyads for integration
- Best ways to integrate these tools into your practice and teaching most effectively
- Time for Q & A and discussion
- Recorded audio practices for at home
