Enhance Alliance and Compliance with Yoga

The work of therapy can’t begin in earnest if the client’s mind is racing with anxiety, fogged by depression, or so tense that the entire body is locked in place.

Teaching yoga skills to clients who have trouble self-regulating and managing their energy and moods can quiet mental chatter, reduce bodily tension, and heighten mental awareness. It can also heighten a client’s readiness to dive deeper into the work of therapy.

In this workshop recording, you’ll learn clinically appropriate, evidence-based yoga practices that can be done in a chair, right in your office, and work quickly to focus the mind.
