The Certificate Program includes completion of all three craniosacral courses (Levels 1-3), and requires that you attend supervised practice sessions, participate in two-way trades with sequential SOAP charting, conduct client craniosacral sessions with a variety of clients, receive personal treatment sessions from certified instructors or practitioners, and pass both the practical and written exams.

You can technically complete the Certificate Program within a 12-month period. However, you need to take into consideration your ability to not only fulfill the requirements but also master the subtle skills necessary to achieve excellence in craniosacral therapy (CST). In order to optimize your skill development, it is recommended (although not required) that you complete the program within three years of registering. Once you register, an instructor/mentor will be assigned to guide you through the process (either Nancy Witt, PT, MSW, CST-D or Einat Arian, ND, PhD, CST-D).

Yoga can help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and improve heart function according to the Mayo Clinic. Every hatha yoga posture is composed of threads of awareness which, through intention, become lines of action. Performing a yoga posture is about finding and holding those lines of action, and the shape of the posture follows. In this class, simple postures will be deeply explored as a way for you to more fully experience being in your body. Iyengar Yoga Fundamentals is for experienced beginners and intermediate students. Mon,
April 6-June 15, 6-7:15 p.m. (skip 5/25). Instructor: Fred Dowd. (12.5 HRs)
