Due to COVID-19, SEYI has developed two new Webinar Series: Sensory-Enhanced Yoga for Self-Regulation, Part 1- The Science and Theory (10 hours) and Sensory-Enhanced Yoga for Self-Regulation, Part 2- The Practice (12 hours). We are no longer offering the 16-hour workshop. We hope you will decide to join us for one of these exciting learning opportunities!!

SENSORY-ENHANCED YOGA® FOR SELF REGULATION, PART 1- THE SCIENCE AND THEORY 

Five 2-Hour Weekly Webinar Sessions

Our 5-week, 10-hour Webinar Series is open to registered yoga instructors who wish to learn the science and theory behind Sensory-Enhanced Yoga® and how it may help those who have high anxiety or have experienced trauma to better self-regulate their own nervous systems and energy levels to better meet life’s challenges. (Certified yoga therapists and health professionals will also be able to use the material presented in this course to address core issues of PTSD and promote healing from the condition.) The information can be applied both “on and off the mat” and presents an evidence-based roadmap for healing these conditions.  Please note:  The webinar series includes several experiential activities but is mostly lecture and discussion. It provides a solid scientific and theoretical grounding for the chair and mat practices that are presented in the 2-day workshops.  This is not a pre-requisite for the 2-day workshop; rather, it presents a quarter of that content and expands on it. This is what we will cover:

1st SESSION:
–PTSD: Scope of the Problem, Symptoms, & Neurophysiology

2nd SESSION:
–Brain Changes in PTSD and Mind-Body Practices:  The Inverse Relationship
–Transdisciplinary Model for Post-Traumatic Growth:  An

–Guidelines 1 & 2: Promoting a Sense of Safety & Calm

4th SESSION:
–Guideline 3- Processing Trauma Through the Sensory Channels/Promoting Presence of Mind

5th SESSION:
–Guidelines 4 & 5 – Helping Our Clients Feel Uplifted and Empowered

All sessions will be video recorded and made available to participants. A “code word” system will be utilized to prove that participants have completed all sessions (live and/or recorded) and the anonymous course and instructor evaluations, all of which are required to receive a certificate of completion.

Purchase of the book, Sensory-Enhanced Yoga for Self-Regulation & Trauma Healing, by Lynn Stoller, is highly recommended and can be ordered directly from Handspring for US residents. For other countries, including Canada, please order from Amazon.
