Embodied Mind was created to help you to develop your own foundational yoga and mindfulness practice so that you can support yourself in your work, and bring these embodied techniques to your clients.

The mind is embodied in our cellular being. Everything we think and emotionally feel is revealed in our body. We can train mind, body and heart through Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation.

There is a revolution in mental healthcare where mind-body practices are increasingly recognised for their ability to compliment other therapy, and in certain situations, even used as an alternative.

We will cover:

  • foundational breath and movement practices for anxiety and depression that you can share with your clients
  • neuroscientific understanding of trauma
  • foundations of mindfulness learned experientially with underpinning Buddhist philosophy and
  • mindfulness interventions practiced and understood through Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Framework
  • yogic lifestyle – foundations for developing a personal practice that will help prevent burnout, and create authenticity in the sharing of mindfulness and movement based interventions

Embodied Mind is a stand alone course, offering 20 hours of Professional Development. It is also the first module in our 200 hour, year-long teacher training. So if this work really calls you, you have the option of continuing on with the year long course.
