LIVE ONLINE IMMERSION LifeForce Yoga with Amy Weintraub: Yoga for Depression and Anxiety
October 2, 2020 - October 4, 2020
Arvada, CO 80002 United States
LIVE ONLINE WORKSHOP
This training incorporates breathing, postures, meditation techniques and other experiential yogic tools for mood management in order to work therapeutically with individuals and groups.
For thousands of years, yogis have understood what current research in neurobiology and clinical observations are demonstrating — that, working with a body and breath-based practice, we can manage our moods. This course interweaves the power of an ancient discipline with current scientific findings to help you release what’s no longer serving you — without a story attached! In this three-day training, you will learn and practice breathing exercises, easy postures, guided meditations, and other experiential yogic tools for mood management that are not often taught in regular yoga classes.
The workshop will include a mix of practice, lecture and practicum. All pre-recorded materials will be sent a week in advance to the start of training.
