LifeForce Yoga® to Manage Your Mood
with Amy Weintraub, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT, MFA, YACEP
April 13 - 15, 2018
LifeForce Yoga® interweaves the power of an ancient discipline with that of current science. In Yogaville’s safe and accepting environment, you’ll learn Yoga practices that can help you maintain your optimum mental health, as well as methods to safely release chronically held tension and repressed emotion in your physical and emotional body.
This workshop offers:
- Breathing techniques that regulate the emotions (pranayama and kriya)
- Meditations that lift the mood
- Affirmations (sankalpa)
- Guided visualizations (bhavana)
- Tones that regulate the emotions (mantras)
- Hand gestures that affect different areas of the chakra system and the body (mudras)
- Yoga asanas suitable for all levels
You’ll leave feeling refreshed and renewed, equipped with ancient strategies to revitalize your practice and manage your mood. Medical professionals and Yoga teachers will learn techniques they can use to help their clients to focus, relax, and have greater access to their feelings.
In Yoga, one shoe doesn’t fit all—all bodies, all levels of experience, all moods. Learn how to assess the mood—yours and your students—and design a menu of practices to meet you where you are.
Fulfills the prerequisite for the LifeForce Yoga® Practitioner Training.
