Y12SR Leadership Training

This Y12SR program presents a framework for addiction recovery that includes the cognitive approach of the 12-step program, the trauma healing approach of Somatic Experiencing and the body-based approaches offered by yoga and mindfulness practices.

Utilizing material from ancient texts, trauma research as well as information and data from modern neuroscience studies, we will discuss exactly how combining the cognitive and somatic approaches can support changes in brain patterning. This holistic framework, based in the theme, ‘The Issues Live in Our Tissues’, presents a holistic relapse prevention model that supports compassionate awareness, change and healing.

Pranayama, Bandhas & Mudras

Pranayama, Bandhas and Mudras
The ancients gave us the practices of pranayama, bandhas and mudras to bring vitality to our energy system.  Using the Hatha Yoga Pradipika as a guide, this class is an exploration of theory and practice.  As we deepen our understanding we will:
 
  • Study the five aspects of the vital body (prana, apana, vyana udana, samana)
  • Explore types of breathing, breathing ratios and developing breath capacity
  • Develop skills to teach asana with emphasis on breath as the medium for movement. 
  • Examine the science of adapting breathing patterns in asana to produce different effects.
  • Explore the effects of breathing techniques, bandhas, and mudras and how to incorporate them into a balanced practice.
