May 14 - 23, 2014

Presented by: Donna Martin

  • Training
  • Yoga & Movement

Integrate Hakomi with mindfulness and yoga for powerful transformation. Renew your yoga, meditation or therapy practice in this hands-on training in the psoma yoga approach to emotional healing. Psoma yoga therapy is an integrated approach to yoga therapy based on the yoga sutras of Patanjali, pranayama, and mindfulness practice. This practice includes mindfulness-based asana and applied mindfulness, or Hakomi(body-centered psychotherapy). This approach to body/mind/spirit healing understands healing as the unfolding of wholeness, or wholeness happening.

This nine day training is for yoga teachers and practitioners who aspire to teach, as well as therapists who have a yoga practice and who would like to learn a way to incorporate a mindfulness-based mind/body/spirit approach with other methods. Receive hands-on instruction, guidance, and practice in the psoma yoga approach, in teaching psoma yoga to groups, including multi-level groups and people with health issues, along with a combined yoga and Hakomi approach to emotional healing. This will be taught experientially with opportunities for personal work as well as to participate in supporting others.
Participants will receive the psoma yoga instruction manual.
