In this course you will learn how to work with students and clients with the practice of mindfulness in their everyday lives, including specialized areas such as stress, anxiety, trauma, eating, grief, and awakening happiness and joy. You will explore the variations of mindfulness and how it can help you with your thoughts, emotions, bodily sensations, and the cultivation of compassion and happiness.
Additionally, you will learn how one-to-one sound healing with various instruments can help further your clients’ process as well as progress; learn how to write and record your own effective and profound guided meditations; as well as develop your own curriculum to facilitate classes, workshops, and retreats with your clientele.
This training is appropriate for yoga teachers, Yoga Therapists, or other educators who have already completed Foundations of Meditation training (or similar). Upon completion, you are eligible to register for 75 CEUs with Yoga Alliance.
My meditation journey began in 1980 while as a teenager. While pregnant with my youngest daughter in 1996, I embraced yoga as an additional part of my regular self-care routine. My personal life’s mission embraces the heart of service with kindness and compassion. Having experienced trauma, tragedy, and illness myself, I have found refuge in mind-body-spirit practices that have provided me with a sense of wholeness, well-being, and loving acceptance. Teachers who are inspired by their own healing and personal growth transmit that inspiration in their interactions with their students.
I am certified both in mindfulness and meditation. I am also a RYT500 and certified both in Accessible Yoga teacher and Yoga Therapeutics. I include mindfulness coaching, sound healing with singing bowls, energy healing and my work as a certified aromatherapist in my repertoire. As a practicing Buddhist, I find that when I understand what causes peace, I know where to direct my efforts. May my efforts continue to bring happiness, well-being, safety, peace, and ease to all beings.
