This Network Yoga Therapy Training Retreat is a unique training for yoga teachers, yoga therapists, serious practitioners who may be healthcare professionals. For a safe and effective (therapeutic) application of yoga. The training strengthens and builds on your yoga foundation. We will look at Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra through the perspective of the psychology of yoga, combining it with medical science and modern insights. The training is also designed to empower you in finding your own voice while confidently using therapeutic yoga tools and working effectively with other healthcare practitioners. That way you will be better equipped to support medical providers in assisting their patients along their journey to health. During the training you will be provided with essential tools to create your own programs for special populations (i.e. burnout, stress related issues). Besides that you will learn how to meet difficult emotions with greater ease, how to manage caregiver fatigue and how to transform challenging relationships into ones that don’t drain your energy. Together, yoga and the mental healthcare system have the potential to create a state of warm, connected presence during dis-balanced moments in our lives. This training is designed to support you in working with yourself, your students and clients intelligently and with common sense while motivating yourself with kindness rather than criticism. In this training you will dive into the holistic framework of yoga. We will discuss safety, trauma, psychotic vulnerability, depression, addiction (change management), stress and burn-out in relationship to how yoga can support and assist the return to a balanced state of emotional well-being.
