Integrating Yogic Principles in the Delivery of Healthcare
A weekend workshop for Healthcare Providers from Matthew Sanford and Mind Body Solutions
How is this different from our Level I Adapting Yoga for Disability workshop?
We have designed this workshop to teach the principles of yoga with less emphasis on the poses and more on practical application to one’s professional practice and personal life. This weekend is about improving mind-body interactions in all contexts, on transforming the therapeutic relationship between caregiver and client, and applying this in a healthcare setting. In this way, both the client and the caregiver are nourished. Clients have improved outcomes and caregivers are more effective and engaged.
Prepare for a weekend of exploration and inquiry as you learn and practice how the ancient principles of yoga can be applied and used immediately in your professional practice. Topics will include the mind body nature of disability, how utilizing a holistic approach nourishes both the client and the caregiver, teaching the experience of a pose, establishing compassionate boundaries, principles of alignment, subtle sensations in the body, resistance to change in the current healthcare model, and self-practice.
Ample time will be spent in the learning and practice of techniques that will be immediately applicable in the healthcare setting. Time will also be directed toward establishing a personal practice so providers will understand the effect of the principles they will be using in the clinical setting.
No yoga experience is required. Please wear comfortable clothing and plan to remove shoes in the studio.
