12 CEUs for Yoga Professionals

I created this course for anyone that is dedicated to personal self exploration through building their inner strengths of self-awareness, self-acceptance and kindness. Specifically for you. And it’s also for professionals that integrate Mindfulness into your work with others.

Being interested in messages that are coming from our own nervous system helps us make choices that lead to more wisdom and self-respect, to honoring our body’s natural responses to the ever-changing stimuli of life. When we learn to trust the signals that are coming from our nervous system we have a better understanding about how to get our needs met.

I’ll be your host, guiding experiential learning within the safety of a personal sized group. I have 25 years experience teaching and consulting in developing self awareness using body-based and meditation practices that bring kindness, clarity and calmness into your life.

Here's a litte more on how this course works...

Tuning Into Your Nervous System and Trusting Its Goodness will help you expand your capacity to shape the brain. You’ll learn ways to manage your nervous system’s needs, have time to practice and ask questions. You'll also:

  • Become stronger in your capacity to do your own inner work.
  • Increase awareness of the patterns you experience so you can engage in practices to shift your patterns.
  • Tune into the flow of your nervous system and understand your own needs and how your nervous system reacts day to day.

You'll also have an opportunity to:

  • Be part of a dedicated group experience that blends neuroplasticity + meditation + personal development.
  • Have a 1:1 session with me. This supports you in bringing this material “home” in a relevant way.

When you join this program you're making a commitment to learn more about yourself on new ground, gaining insight into how you’ve been shaped. Check out what some previous clients had to say below.

Let me share a bit more about how I've designed this program to work...

During this course I'll guide you in becoming more attuned to listening to the messages inside. You see, it is life-changing to gain a deeper understanding of our own nervous system’s needs for safety in connection with others. Bringing self-awareness, self-acceptance and kindness to our journey allows the possibility of shifting how we respond, both in our own lives and in how we interact. We'll also work together to:

  • bring self-care to your own nervous system through personal and shared practices.
  • make sure you have practical tools that work for you, and that restore equilibrium for yourself and your clients.
  • deepen your understanding in how your nervous system evolves with its own basic needs and ways of communicating.

Because I’ve taught for many years, I'll also guide you through exploring simple adapted yoga practices and reflect on how they impact your system. I know that part of this work is about having the support with another person to explore places inside that are asking for healing.

You do have the capacity to engage in your own life as you grow older with dignity and kindness. Learn about your brain and it’s vast innate structures. Engage in simple practices that contribute to healing, happiness, and strength. Stand for yourself like nobody else can.

Introducing Our Guest Expert, Deb Dana...

Through a polyvagal lens we learn to listen to our embodied stories. Using a polyvagal perspective, we can let go of self criticism and bring an open heart to exploring the "ways and whys" of our daily experience...
- Deb


Why do we have  Practice Partners?

A primary way that our nervous system learns is by connecting with each other.

A Practice Partner is who you’ll have an opportunity to share your learning with. You’ll meet with your Practice Partner 6 times, once a week. There will be suggested exercises and topics to share. Tell us how this helps, how you came up with it, the result we can expect.

How do I know if this is for me?

The course is designed for personal exploration, to enrich your practices grounded in greater awareness. When you join this course you are signing on for a journey of learning to more and more turn toward yourself with kindness and self-caring, knowing that at times this can be challenging. This is not a replacement for a therapeutic setting with ongoing 1:1 support.

Because we are creating a group together, you want to attend the live sessions.

How many hours should I reserve each week to complete the program?

To make this investment meaningful, you’ll want to dedicate 2 to 3 hours per week. If you are unable to make this commitment then you’d be better served to participate another time.

How long does it take to see a difference? If you apply yourself to daily practice, meet with your Practice Partner weekly, and attend the live sessions, you should start to see a difference within a month or less.

How is this program different from others?

This program blends tools of therapeutic yoga with positive neuroplasticity and a growing understanding of the Polyvagal System, to help you attune to, and address the messages from your own system. This blending of body + brain and body + nervous system simply boils down to this - it’s all one experience inside. This has helped me step away from judgment and into greater kindness toward what is healing inside.

Is this program practical? How easily will I be able to implement the practices you teach into my daily life?

The daily practices will be short - no more than 15 minutes. They will be adapted so that you can benefit from a practice that suits your needs.

How does this program work?

There will be recorded interviews with Deb Dana, LCSW, a guest expert, to help you gain clarity. She trains clinicians in how to regulate themselves. Deb co-authored a book with Stephen Porges, PhD., Clinical Applications of The Polyvagal Theory: The Emergence of Polyvagal-Informed Therapies (forthcoming from W.W. Norton).

Then, in each session there will be live integration experiences to bring the learning home. These may include tools of yoga such as breathing and meditation exercises; gentle movement; self-reflection; journaling and sharing.

Each week, you’ll have a recorded practice/s to explore.

You'll receive a welcome email with a few reminders and ways to prepare on Jan 17. The first group meeting, Jan. 23rd, will be an orientation process. During the week of March 12th, we’ll meet 1:1, to support you in taking the next step.

In addition, we’ll meet together live for 6 sessions. Plan on meeting for 1.5 hours per session.

A quick overview on how each week works: We’ll meet for an orientation, then have the first 3 sessions, followed by a week “off” to implement. Then, we'll resume meeting for the remaining 3 session, then meet 1 to 1 during our last week.

The week off is important time. It allows time for learning to digest, to apply new understandings and to have some breathing time to come back refreshed.

I’ll offer office hours every other week if you have a question or want to connect.

There will be also be a live Q&A with Deb Dana during the course.
