Looking at Dementia Through a Yogic Lens (for prevention, and both caregivers and patients)

 50 million people worldwide have dementia. There are approximately 10 million new cases each year. Chances are our clients will at some point know someone with dementia. Some of our clients may even develop dementia themselves. Though dementia is a tough topic, it is not one we should ignore.

In this workshop we will look at

—what exactly dementia is—what current science is saying about prevention strategies that may delay dementia—our role as yoga teachers—what is beyond our role and what health care professionals we can refer our clients to—yoga tools for caregivers of dementia patients—sample class for caregivers—yoga tools for people with dementia—sample mini class for people with dementia

Yoga for Vulnerable Groups—Yoga spaces can often be mostly white, mostly middle class spaces. However, yoga can benefit diverse groups. By bringing mindfulness to our teaching we can make our classes more accessible and welcoming to groups who may not have had the opportunity to practice yoga.

In this workshop we look at populations including domestic abuse survivors, LGBTQIA2S+, immigrants & refugees, and at risk youth that might not have access to a yoga practice.

In this workshop we look at how to set up our classes to be accommodate different needs and abilities. We explore how we can support yoga practices outside of traditional spaces.

We will also explore strategies we can bring yoga to more people, while keeping this work sustainable for us.

Yoga and Embodiment—Embodiment practices help us to be in our body. There is a saying that our body is more than a brain taxi. Yet, how often can we get wrapped up in our thoughts—past and future.

In this workshop we work with the body to gain a deeper understanding of the burgeoning field of embodiment. We explore how yoga fits into the world of embodiment.

We will look at the differences between mindfulness and embodiment.

Through some fun experiments we will play and explore our own embodiment

Throughout the workshop you will be introduced to several quick tips and takeaways that you can immediately incorporate into your days to be more embodied.

Until December 2023 contact credits can be earned through virtual workshops.
