Learn how to combine mindfulness, simple yoga practices, and effective counseling techniques in individual and small group therapy sessions. This whole-client approach supports the development of wellness habits and addresses some of the most persistent physical symptoms that accompany anxiety, depression, ADHD, loss, and trauma.

Yoga Calm® activities are effective for a wide range of ages, settings, and populations. Yoga Calm founder Lynea Gillen will offer innovative practices that include social/emotional skill building, breathing techniques and simple yoga poses.

Participants will learn self-care techniques to reduce the stress of counseling work. Yoga techniques taught in this workshop are very simple and can be used by anyone, including those who have physical limitations and/or no prior yoga experience.

Past participants have said…

“I loved the activities that could be immediately applied to working with people, clients, and myself.

“I appreciated the integration of both Eastern and Western philosophy. The
presentation was focused in application, with interventions that can be used in
therapeutic settings with all age groups.

“Applicable to so many different work environments, not only in therapy!”
