Transforming Personal Patterns through Narrative Yoga Therapy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Whether we see ourselves as the “golden child” or the “black sheep,” the stories we live and tell ourselves impact who we are, and how we relate to the world. They shape our mental, emotional, and physical patterns, how rigid or flexible we are, how weak or empowered we feel, and how aggressive or gentle we respond to our life situations. This daylong Master Class will introduce a unique method to uncover the patterns and polarities in an individual’s personal narratives through a creative approach that combines visual storytelling and embodied experiences. Participants will be introduced to Narrative Yoga Therapy and the practice of Yoga Nidra, an ancient form of conscious relaxation that fosters recognition of deep energy patterns through creative awareness and visualization. The combined practice of Yoga Nidra and visual storytelling can aid clients in navigating through their inner narratives and energy patterns in a calm, relaxed state. Come experience Narrative Yoga Therapy for yourself, and learn how to help others transform with it!

Eligible for 6.0 Credits: ATCB, NBCC; ASWB, APA, MFT, Nursing; SWNYS Pending
