Our 5-week, 10-hour Webinar Series for occupational therapists, licensed counselors, certified yoga therapists, and other health professionals presents the science and theory behind Sensory-Enhanced Yoga® and how and why it can be especially effective for addressing symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, mixed anxiety/depression, and related mental health conditions.  The information can be applied both “on and off the mat” and presents an evidence-based roadmap for healing these conditions.  No yoga experience is necessary. 

Please note:  This webinar series includes several experiential activities but is mostly lecture and discussion.  This course provides a solid scientific and theoretical grounding for the chair and mat practices that are presented in the follow-up webinar series, “Sensory-Enhanced Yoga® for Self-Regulation & Trauma Healing, Part 2-The Practice”. 

You can purchase a ticket to this webinar alone or as a combination with Part 2 for a $25 discount. Please Note:  Each Part 1 offers two options for Part 2 if signing up for a Combo Package. Please read the dates carefully. *Combo Package is no longer available in conjunction with this Part 1 as Part 2 is full for the Summer Series.
