Yoga as Therapy Workshop 23rd September 2016 – A CPD day for counsellors and psychotherapists.
Yoga as Therapy
Reconnecting to our physical bodies can create openness and release that creates an environment for change.
During this workshop you will be invited to participate in an experiential journey towards this connection. Exploring techniques that are both rooted in traditional Eastern Yoga Philosophy and developed with western scientific research.
Aims of the workshop:
- To learn, experientially and theoretically, simple yoga practices that aid relaxation and encourage body awareness
- To experience the deeply calming properties of yoga together and understand their therapeutic value in a clinical setting
- Identify specific therapeutic application of these techniques when working with clients
- Gain skills that can be used immediately for personal self care – including relaxation and stress management.
Expect to participate in gentle yoga stretches and lots of relaxation. Please wear loose comfortable clothing, layers may be best. Some practices will involve floor based relaxation.
The workshop will outline and demonstrate techniques which draw from various traditions and practices, including Yoga Nidra, visualisation and meditation as well as some simple, but effective breathing techniques for treating anxiety, depression or simply to relax and calm. No prior experience of Yoga is necessary.
Yoga therapist, Tracy Gaillie, has been working in a number of settings for the last 14 years delivering classes and workshops with an emphasis on holistic integration of the body mind experience. Following personal illness, she discovered that simple yoga practices began to reconnect her to her body again, as she finally listened to the messages it was sending, she was gradually led towards change and development. As she taught these practices she realised that yoga facilitated not only a release but a need to express feelings, discovering what this could offer in the therapeutic relationship.
