As a clinician, yoga teacher, Doctor, nurse, teacher or human service worker we come across people who have suffered trauma on a very regular basis. This training will give you the tools to support your clients to be able to use their bodies as a resource in an empowering way, and over time supporting the rewiring of the brain and fostering the ability to self regulate and self soothe. When we feel safe in our bodies we are better able to relate, learn and grow emotionally.
With the latest research we also know that interoception, choice making, empowerment not by achieving goals or postures, but by choosing what is right for your body has the capacity to rewire our brain. Further to this Yoga has provided a Psychology that goes alongside the practical elements of the practice. This workshop shall explore this in depth, by further exploring the 'mind' in relation to yoga.
Learning to become insightful into our inner journey can be liberating as we make sense of our life experiences by understanding and coming to a place of acceptance and self awareness. Only then can we be of service to others.
Yin helps us to come into our bodies, allowing us curiosity for growth and lifelong learning. We work with and consider our energy body, physical body, emotional and mental body and train our mind. This is the key to providing centering and balance to the nervous system which controls how we feel in the world. Yin yoga brings calm to the nervous system and importantly helps to up regulate the para-sympathetic mode of the nervous system - where you rest, digest and heal. In this space we can consider the mind and develop mindfulness and begin the journey of Psychological Inquiry, thus starting to open the healing doors much more widely.
