    Yoga Therapy and Meditation for Mental Health: Relaxation for Therapists and Clients  

    Our November presentation will be a combination of self-care for not only ourselves but for our clients. 

    Certain Yoga techniques can affect emotional self-regulation in a technological, scientific way: results are measurable and replicable. Practicing with a certified Yoga therapist can greatly enhance personal and collective resilience and well being.

    Objectives for this gentle workshop:

    1. Understand the difference between a Yoga class and working with a Yoga therapist so that you may confidently refer clients in support of your work as an MFT.

    2. Experience the effects of relaxation first-hand, gently.

    3. Remember and engage accessible self-care strategies, inner resilience and the peace, calmness and wisdom that lie within you.

    PLEASE NOTE:  There is a limit of 20 participants for this event.  You MUST register online, in advance.  We will not be accepting registrations at the door.

    Many of our members have requested workshops on the topic of self-care and avoiding burnout.  Brooke West, certified Yoga therapist and instructor, will again bring her delightful energy to share with us.  She works with those who have suffered trauma, such as those serving in the military, and with those with diagnosed mental illness.

    This retreat experience is designed to bring awareness to breath, body, mental and emotional fields in the present moment; steady emotions; decrease judgment; increase sensory sensitivity; calm the body; and quiet the mind.

    Moving ever-so-gently through ninety minutes of relaxation will restore vitality and a sense of ease, of "letting go."

    We request that people dress comfortably and warmly, in layers, including socks, comfortable pants and a sweatshirt; bring a Yoga mat and eye pillow if you have one (props will be provided) and please refrain from drinking caffeine before the retreat to take advantage of this relaxation ritual. You may eat lightly before the practice. If you feel unwell, please stay home. Bring a bottle of water to class.

    All participants are encouraged to contact Brooke with any questions, concerns or emotional or physical issues for which we might accommodate to make you more comfortable.

    We host our Annual Networking Meeting each January.  It may be one of the most important meetings you could attend.  Why?  This is the one meeting per year that we spend time sharing of ourselves as individuals and agencies to educate, inform and promote.  We learn what’s available to us, and invariably increase our resources. 


    We will provide coffee, tea and light snacks.


    Be sure to bring plenty of your business cards and marketing materials!  Each attendee will have about 2 minutes to introduce themselves and their practice!


    This year look for some dynamic changes.  We are looking forward to a great New Year, starting with our annual gathering of colleagues. 



    If you need that extra time to catch up with friends you may arrive at 8:30!
