The Science of Well-Being: Inflammation’s Role in Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain, & Suffering (and what we can do about it) In this groundbreaking three-day course, Bo Forbes combines the ancient traditions of yoga and mindfulness with the modern approaches of neuroscience, psychology, immunology, biology, and social justice to address anxiety, depression, chronic pain, and more. This life-altering immersion demonstrates how inflammation is a root cause of human suffering- and what we can do to alleviate it. You’ll also have the option to sign up for one of Bo’s online courses and receive a 60-hour certificate.

In this Masterclass, we’ll explore emerging findings in how we understand and treat depression. We’ll cover: -new "origin" stories for depression -the neural pathways of depression -emerging research on the use of psychedelics in depression -new findings on social exclusion, isolation, and loneliness -the social determinants of mental health We’ll also discuss practical tools for healing on physiological, psychological, and social levels that you can apply to your personal practice, life, work, and relationships.

Restorative Yoga originated as a technique to address injuries, illness, and chronic disease. In modern Western culture, it's often used as a last resort, a brief reset when we can't produce at expected levels. But there's more to it than that, especially now. In this 2-hr Masterclass, we explore emerging research in the science of change. We’ll cover: new findings in neuroplasticity, the science of change the top 5 ways to retrain the brain, body, & nervous system when and how to use dynamic rest practices the impact of rest on the gut microbiome, sleep, & emotions what the research has to say about restorative practice how embodied dynamic rest improves emotional and social health the social context of safety and rest We’ll discuss practical tools for healing on physiological, psychological, and social levels. You don't need to attend live, but you do need to register- early is better to …
Almost all species have internal rhythms and a sense of time, which are the focus of a field now known as chronobiology. We have internal circadian (24-hour) clocks that generate and shape daily cycles in our physiology, emotion, and behavior. In this 2-hr Masterclass, we explore emerging research in the science of change, including: -new findings in chronobiology, the science of body clocks -how light affects sleep -the impact of light on emotional well-being -photoentrainment and inflammation -top practices to tune your biological clocks so they're in harmony with time -the social context of circadian tuning We’ll discuss practical tools for healing on physical, emotional, and social levels. You don't need to attend live, but you do need to register- early is better to ensure your reg. goes through. Reg. ends @ 11:30am EST on 12/7. BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) scholarships. Email Julie: email@example.com.
This course combines social, affective, and neuroscience with psychology and embodied practices culled from the traditions of yoga and mindfulness to the study of how we create lasting change through the lens of today’s rapidly changing and challenging world
The most compelling role of connective tissue may be the one it plays in interoception, awareness of the inner state of our bodies. Emerging research also links connective tissue and interoception with inflammation and depression, opening a door to new therapies for posttraumatic stress disorder, IBS, eating disorders, depression, chronic pain, and anxiety. In this Masterclass, we’ll explore: -The relationship between connective tissue and interoception -How they link to inflammation, depression, and chronic pain -Implications for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and IBS -Differences between interoceptive and proprioceptive awareness and training -How yoga, mindfulness, and manual therapy can help
In this 90-minute practice, I'll guide you through an *interoceptive* approach to connective tissue self-massage. We'll explore the front, sides, and back bodies, focusing on the chest and lymph area, shoulders, intercostals, neck, upper back, mid back, lower back, and hips. I'll follow that with a 15-minute discussion on themes for personal practice and teaching. (With time for questions.)
Why is setting boundaries so difficult? Why does it often create a residue of activation, and what can we to do navigate our (and others') boundaries more smoothly, especially in a pandemic + the shadow of war? In this Masterclass, we’ll explore: The science of interpersonal boundaries Our attentional systems and how they relate How our nervous and immune systems help regulate boundaries The energetic costs of setting and maintaining boundaries The art of communication re: limits The roles of interoception, body agency, & body ownership How empaths can generate and maintain better boundaries Boundaries in their wider social context We’ll discuss practical tools for physical, emotional, and social well-being.
