This yoga and meditation practice is designed to help in the alleviation of mental and physical discomfort in the aftermath of emotional trauma. This one-hour practice can easily be divided into two shorter practices – the first being more physical poses, adapted to a clinical setting, and the second section is a more meditative practice. This short program begins with an introduction that provides the clinical perspectives and benefits derived from yoga and meditation practices. The class section that follows includes poses, affirmations and breathing practices which many clients find ease their distressed emotional state that result from traumatic events.
Mary NurrieStearns, MSW, LCSW, C-IAYT, teaches seminars and retreats to teach clinicians how to take mindfulness skills, brain based protocols for treating shame and office-based yoga back to their clients. These evidence based clinical interventions move therapy forward by improving emotional regulation, restoring healthy nervous system functioning and cultivating healthier thought patterns. Both mindfulness and yoga practices have brought healing and calm to Mary’s clients and students.
Mary provides participants with the latest research results and pulls together the work of experts in the mental health field who are proponents of both practices (i.e. Bessel van der Kolk, Jon Kabat-Zinn). She draws on 37 years as a mental health professional counselor and 27 years of meditation and yoga practice. She is a certified yoga therapist, seasoned yoga teacher and ordained member of Thich Naht Hahn’s Order of Interbeing.
