SENSORY-ENHANCED YOGA® FOR SELF-REGULATION
2-Day Workshop for Yoga Instructors & Yoga Therapists:
Sensory-Enhanced Yoga® for Self-Regulation is designed especially for registered yoga instructors and certified yoga therapists who wish to incorporate evidence-based, trauma-sensitive yoga techniques into their yoga classes to 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 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 2-day workshop includes several paired teaching practices and a larger group experiential lab.
You Will Learn:
» How trauma may affect sensory processing and specific brain functions, along with the supporting evidence.
» How mindfulness-based practices, including yoga, may affect specific brain functions, along with the supporting evidence.
» How to utilize the Transdisciplinary Model for Post Traumatic Growth (© 2012 L. Stoller) as a roadmap to help your yoga students, especially those experiencing high anxiety or who have been traumatized, to feel more safe, calm, clear, uplifted, and empowered.
» The definition, purpose, and 5 guidelines of practice for Sensory-Enhanced Yoga®.
» How to incorporate specific yoga, breathing, and other mindfulness techniques of Sensory-Enhanced Yoga® into your yoga classes to help your students self-regulate their own nervous systems and energy levels to better meet life’s challenges.
Sensory-Enhanced Yoga® is closely informed by the highly successful treatment protocol used with deployed military personnel in Kirkuk, Iraq, which Lynn co-developed; her experience teaching veterans in her local community; as well as her many years of experience as a sensory integration certified occupational therapist and registered yoga instructor.
