An Afternoon Retreat with Julie Hsu

Saturday, November 2, 2019 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
$60 if registered by October 25, 2019 -> register and pay here
$65 if registered after October 25, 2019 -> register and pay here

While there is great benefit to getting away for a while on a longer retreat, it can be quite transformational taking just a few hours from a weekend afternoon to dedicate to your practice. In the typical drop in class, there is often not enough time to really delve into the deeper work and yogic philosophy. By setting aside more time, there is the potential to go deeper and come to greater realizations and true knowing. At the same time, the longer practice can give adequate time for grounding and feeling ready to integrate that understanding into daily life.

Come join Julie for an afternoon of practice in your familiar setting at Phinney Ridge Yoga. The afternoon will include an extended pranayama (breath work) and kriya (repetitive movements and breath patterns that affect energy) practice, guided and silent meditation, and a moderate-level asana (posture) practice. The asana portion of the program will be comprised of hatha (familiar strengthening & stretching postures), yin (long-held stretches), and restorative (supported) postures. The intent is for this time together to be primarily experiential, with some philosophy being discussed and included in the practice.

Give yourself the great gift of dedicating more time to your practice, exploring potent philosophical concepts, and applying those concepts to your future practices and everyday life.

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE TO ACTIVE DUTY AND VETERANS.

Veterans Yoga Project is teaming up with Phinney Ridge Yoga to offer an extraordinary opportunity for intensive training in a proven, mindful approach to teaching yoga to veterans and others who are struggling with post-traumatic stress and other trauma-related psychological difficulties.

Mindful Resilience for Recovery and Resilience is an evidence-informed, clinically-tested yoga program that was developed specifically for veterans recovering from post-traumatic stress and other psychological difficulties. It is an evidence-informed, in that practices have been chosen and adapted based on clinical and neuro-scientific knowledge about post-traumatic stress and its treatment. It is clinically-tested, in that it was developed based on feedback from hundreds of veterans and active-duty service members receiving treatment at residential and outpatient treatment programs. Mindful Resilience has been successfully integrated into mental health and addiction treatment programs for veterans and active-duty military across the US and Canada.

In the Level One teacher training, you will explore:

  1. The development, course, and consequences of trauma-related disorders
  2. The psychotherapeutic treatment of trauma-related disorders and how yoga fits into an integrative treatment approach
  3. Special considerations and cautions when providing yoga therapy to veterans and other trauma-affected individuals
  4. Specific practices, guiding principles, and resources found to be helpful for veterans coping with trauma, including a detailed treatment manual with an empirically-informed, clinically-tested 12-week protocol, and access to a downloadable electronic copy (pdf) of the Mindful Resilience Yoga for Veterans Recovering from Trauma practice guide.

This Veterans Yoga Project training consists of a balance of practice and lecture/discussion. At the end of the training, participants will understand the symptoms of post-traumatic stress and other trauma-related disorders, how those symptoms are related to underlying neurobiology, and how to use this understanding to most effectively teach individuals recovering from trauma.
