MENTAL HEALTH AWARE YOGA TRAINING - DR LAUREN TOBER
If online training is more what you are looking for we are really happy to support and endorse the following online training program that has been developed and facilitated by Dr Lauren Tober- a great program for yoga teachers who are looking to advance their skills.
It’s a 60 hour online training with Clinical Psychologist and Yoga Teacher Dr Lauren Tober, to learn how to make your yoga classes safe, nourishing and transformative for ALL your students, including those with mental health challenges. Understanding mental health is a MUST for all Yoga Teachers, particularly because the research shows that over 80% of yoga students are practicing yoga for the mental health benefits! Just because a student doesn’t tell us that they’re struggling, it doesn’t mean that they’re not. Trauma is surprisingly common, and anxiety levels are through the roof after the past few years we’ve all had! So do yourself (and your students) a favour, and sign up for the online Mental Health Aware Yoga training.
PS: There’s some cool bonuses too! You will receive a pack of Consent Tokens in the mail, and you’ll get access to all the video recordings from the latest Mental Health + Yoga Summit (with a world-class line-up of Speakers!).
