Be More Than Your Mood with Yoga.Beneath our aches and pains and shifting moods, we are bliss. Let the author of Yoga for Depression guide you through a menu of yoga practices to shine through the clouds of unknowing to release whatever blocks you from remembering who you truly are. Come home to the joy that is your birthright. Come home to your radiant Self. At the end of this workshop, meet yourself shining in the mirror. You will be amazed! CEU’s available.
Along with accessible poses, pranayama breathing exercises, and Yoga Nidra, LifeForce Yoga offers yoga practices drawn from Nondual and Tantric traditions not taught in regular Yoga classes:
- Love Pranayama Meditation
- LifeForce Yoga Bliss Meditation
- Mudras to Awaken Joy
- Mantras to Awaken Courage and Strength
- LifeForce Yoga Chakra Clearing Meditation
- Self-Inquiry in Dyads
Many of these practices are suitable in a clinical setting, so if you are a healing professional, in addition to taking care of yourself, you will learn new tools to support and empower those you serve. This program is designed by Amy Weintraub and based on the practices in Yoga for Depression and Yoga Skills for Therapists.
