Yoga & Mindfulness: Clinical Interventions for Anxiety, Depression and Trauma




Description

Yoga and mindfulness practices help generate health and happiness by incorporating principles of neuroscience, neuroplasticity, bi-directional body/mind communication and innate basic goodness. These evidence-based practices can help clients release trauma imprints, calm worried minds, soothe painful emotions, replace harmful thoughts, cultivate compassion, enhance concentration and teach the joys of present moment awareness.
Join Mary NurrieStearns to practice interventions that teach your clients how to:

  • Regulate their emotions
  • Relate to their thoughts
  • Treat themselves and others kindly
  • Focus on cultivating wellness

Mary’s teaching style is light-hearted and relevant to your work. Infused with practical, clinical examples and practices that you try on for yourself, this seminar focuses on how to integrate yoga and mindfulness as clinical resources in your day-to-day work. You will leave the seminar with a deeper understanding and skill set to apply for yourself and your clients.
