Yoga Therapy and Mindfulness for Addictions
Yoga is a remarkable practice that builds self-awareness, strength, clarity of mind, and resilience. By clearly understanding how yoga can promote psychological and physical changes, we can tailor practices to support the addicted mind and help prevent relapse.
The Yoga Therapy & Mindfulness for Addictions course uses an integrative yogic-based approach that explores body, breath and mind to empower the individual with the tools to regulate their nervous system.
This enables practitioners to work from a complete mind-and-body perspective and firmly sets the foundation for successful engagement with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
What will you get from this training?
Students learn how to use integrative yogic-based approaches to addictions that will allow you to work with clients privately, in clinics, and in group settings.
• Knowledge of how to teach a four-week course that has been developed over years of working with yoga and relaxation practices in addiction and recovery settings
• An understanding of how to work with addictions and recovery from a yogic and mindfulness perspective with individual clients and groups

• Why we become addicted to substances and behavioral patterns
• Which underlying neurological and psychological tendencies make people more vulnerable to addiction
