The Interface between Yoga and Healing
With Jean Danford: Principal of Real Yoga and senior tutor for the College of Healing
Many Yoga teachers and therapists find themselves interested in the healing aspects of yoga, often taking Reiki, or short healing courses, to explore further. It is natural as we progress in yoga, to notice a change in our natural energy reserves and to want do something with that. Pranic healing is the yogi’s way of using that extra energy for oneself or for others. This workshop explores the shared history and methodology of healing and Yoga, traditional pranic healing techniques and the shared understanding of subtle energy.
We will also look at the exchange of energy in the therapeutic relationship.
YOGA AS A THERAPEUTIC RESPONSE TO GRIEF
The aim of this workshop is to help you understand common physical, emotional and spiritual responses to grief and how yoga can enable a therapeutic response. It will offer an engaging mix of presentation, small group work and practical yoga.
The morning will be led by Katrina Taee who is an experienced bereavement counsellor, End of Life Doula and co-author of “Surviving the Tsunami of Grief”. The afternoon will be a practical five kosha approach to using yoga as a therapeutic response to grief and will be led by Patricia Cronin, yoga therapist and trainee End of life Doula.
Reflective Practice and Mentoring
The therapist is on a continuing journey in their own development, as they work with clients.
We feel it is important to reflect and integrate our experiences in therapy, and have support from a peer group. For this we offer facilitated Yoga Therapy support groups face to face or by Zoom.
Dates for these are being planned.
One to one mentoring is also available in hour or half hour sessions. These may be face to face, or by phone, Skype or Zoom. Please register your interest and we will be in touch to arrange an appointment. Alternatively just call or email.
