Program Details

For all levels.

The World Health Organization estimates that by 2030 depression will be our highest global disease burden. How can yoga help change this trajectory? When we integrate the principles and practices of yoga and mindfulness, we have the strongest chance of ending this epidemic.

In this immersion with psychologist and yoga therapist Bo Forbes, we draw from emerging research in neuroscience to work with the neural principles that create change. You learn

  • How to access and change the mind-body network
  • How the nervous system, immune system, enteric nervous system, and emotional body impact emotional imbalance
  • The five primary interventions for anxiety and depression
  • How to create "embodied insight" and optimize the body’s role in emotional transformation
  • How to craft a daily therapeutic practice targeted to your needs.

Experience the integration of breathing exercises, postural adjustments, restorative poses, and other therapeutic elements to balance the nervous system, quiet the mind, energize the body, enhance immunity, and regulate emotions—creating the building blocks for transformation.

Note This workshop includes a Saturday early-evening clinic and early-morning classes on both Saturday and Sunday.
