The Therapeutic Relationship
Yoga Teacher Training courses provide the essential foundations for conducting public classes but often leave graduates wanting to learn more about:
- How to create clear, compassionate boundaries
- Directive and non-Directive dialogue
- Embodied presence and listening skills
- Effective, non-violent communication
Yoga teachers, yoga therapists and anyone in the helping professions need to be able to adjust to the unique needs of each client or student while maintaining a safe therapeutic relationship that is empowering for everyone.
In this innovative workshop, we will explore the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship and learn how to create a safe and welcoming space. This course will examine ways to manage your relationship to your students. You will gain a deeper understanding of where classical yoga psychology and modern pyscho-therapeutic theory meet to allow us to be of service to our students while maintaining balance for ourselves.
