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.

Talking to people and telling them to change their thinking is simply no longer state-of-the-art treatment. A growing body of scientific research and literature, especially in the field of trauma, recognizes that the dysregulation of affect and disruptions in mood and thought are driven by the body – more specifically by disturbances in the body’s bioenergetic patterns. In this hands-on workshop you will learn simple yet profound client-centered tools that combine cognitive interventions with physical interventions derived from acupuncture, yoga, and other ancient systems of healing. Collectively, these methods are known as Energy Psychology. In this Level 1 workshop you will learn simple, yet profound client-centered tools that combine physical interventions - derived from acupuncture, yoga, and other ancient systems of healing - with cognitive interventions. Saturday, October 15th - Sunday, October 16th, 9:30 a.m.- 5:30 p.m. Instructor: Stephanie Eldringhoff. (12 CEUs)

While depression may seem to stem from many causes, in the view of Buddhist Psychology it is understood to occur when one is grasping too much at thoughts. This burdensome attachment causes much suffering, and also indicates a lack of understanding of fundamental principles, such as impermanence.

Most of the restrictions in the body develop as a response to some form of trauma in the life of the client (including prenatal experiences). In CranioSacral Levels 1 and 2, the focus is on a biomechanical/structural approach to releasing restrictions found in the body, the cranium and the face. In Level 3, the focus shifts to another aspect of “restriction” in the body - the emotional response, which can also develop as a response to some form of trauma.
