The Practical Science and Psychology of Well-Being ~ And Takeways for Your Life

aka Yoga, Mindfulness, Neuroscience, & the Body

CEs for yoga teachers, yoga therapists, and psychologists

June 14, 15, and 16, 2019
The Arlington Center
Arlington, MA.
$450

Transformation is a mind-body endeavor. But how, exactly, does it work- and how can a deeper understanding of the mind-body relationship change our lives and help us offer more to others? In a user-friendly way, Bo integrates emerging research in yoga, mindfulness, neuroscience, psychology, and connective tissue therapies with practical, powerful tools to enrich your personal life, daily practice, and professional work (including the study or teaching of yoga).

On our first day, we’ll explore the practical neuroscience of the mind-body relationship and several systems within us that regulate change. On Day II, Bo breaks down the new science of embodiment and its practical application to physical, emotional, and social well-being. We’ll experience ways to integrate embodiment into life, work, yoga practice, relationships, and community. On Day III, we’ll explore the form and function of our enteric nervous system or belly brain. We’ll experience practices that release physical and emotional tension and stagnation in the abdominal area, increase “prana in the belly,” promote physical and emotional digestion, improve mind-body awareness, and enhance emotional immunity. And we’ll learn techniques for integrating connective tissue work with special issues such as trauma, empathic imbalances, anxiety, and depression. We’ll also experience a variety of fascial release techniques to incorporate into our personal everyday practice, group classes, and private yoga sessions.

In this workshop, you’ll learn to quiet your mind, rewire your brain, and revitalize your body for total mind-brain-body wellness. You’ll learn tools to help you develop greater resilience in today’s volatile world.

Day I: The Science of Transformation
Day II: Mindfulness, the Body, and Emotional Regulation
Day III: Intelligent Systems Within Us: The Gut Brain & Connective Tissue Matrix
