LifeForce Yoga Practitioner Training For Depression & Anxiety – Level 1
January 10, 2016 - January 17, 2016
Tucson, AZ 85743 United States
The LifeForce Yoga Practitioner (LFYP)Training is open to all and offers certification for health care and yoga professionals. On other pages on this website you will find mood management support through workshops, individual sessions, research, books and audio visual materials for those with depression, anxiety, chronic pain and a history of trauma and for the professionals who serve them.
In the LFYP Training, you will learn an evidence-based practice for both depression and anxiety, as well as ancient strategies from both Tantric and Classical Yoga traditions for self-care. Learn Yoga practices supported by current research in psycho-neurobiology to help clear away the obstructions (chronic tensions, constricting beliefs, limiting emotions) that may be keeping you and those you serve from knowing and expressing your authenticity and your fullest potential.
Learn to create and sustain a safe container for students and clients so that learning can occur in an atmosphere of acceptance and love. Learn to assess mood and constitution from a Yogic perspective. Throughout the training, you will personally experience each exercise and have opportunities to observe your own sensations, feelings, and thoughts, as you are guided and then lead practices in dyads and small groups with supervision from the LFYP Faculty. Distinctions are made between those practices that may be safely led by a Yoga Teacher and those that may be suitable in a clinical setting, led by a psychotherapist or other health professional.
CEUs for mental health professionals and yoga teachers.
