SENSORY-ENHANCED YOGA® FOR SELF REGULATION & TRAUMA HEALING, PART 1- THE SCIENCE AND THEORY
Five 2-Hour Weekly Webinar Sessions
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”. This is what we will cover:
–PTSD: Scope of the Problem, Symptoms, & Neurophysiology
