Chair Yoga for Emotional Health & Healing

Bring the power of yoga to your clinical practice

"In order to change, people need to become aware of their sensations and the way that their bodies interact with the world around them." - Bessel van der Kolk

Our bodies hold physical memories of our experiences. This program is designed to help clinicians learn chair yoga techniques to assist clients in developing a greater awareness and understanding of their physical, energetic, emotional and mind body. Clinicians will develop and refine the skills necessary to use yoga therapy in a professional setting with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression and trauma.


Learning Objectives

  • Understand how depression, anxiety and trauma influence the physical, energetic, mental and emotional body.
  • Discover the relationship between the body, breath, mind and emotions to promote health and well-being.
  • Learn the principals for yoga as therapy in a clinical setting.
  • Learn chair based yoga practice for anxiety, depression and trauma.
