Mindful Therapeutic Yoga Practices for Veterans Pre-Conference LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

This is a separate pre-conference ticket open to yoga teachers. Once you register and pay tuition for the pre-conference (separate from the SYF All Access Pass but including a complimentary one) you are guaranteed to attend all workshops and will be provided your schedule upon arrival Thursday morning. 

At SYF2014, in partnership with the Give Back Yoga Foundation, we are offering SYF Gives Back 2014 – Mindful Therapeutic Yoga Practices for Veterans, a 2-Day Pre-Conference intensive training for yoga teachers. We chose to partner with Give Back Yoga Foundation because of their total dedication to making yoga available to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience the transformational benefits of this powerful practice. This training will provide participants with specific tools and practices developed through clinical experience working with veterans coping with post-traumatic stress and other psycho-emotional stress. While benefiting trauma patients safely and comfortably, the training can be helpful for yoga teachers working with anyone dealing with stress and other psychological difficulties.

The Give Back Yoga Foundation has assembled a faculty of leading experts for this training, including Beryl Bender Birch, James Fox, Suzanne Manafort, Gina Garcia, and Ann Richardson, all who have been working continuously for years with veterans in their recovery process from post-traumatic stress. Participants are offered complimentary access to the Sedona Yoga Festival through Saturday and Sunday, as well as post-conference offerings to help build networks and strategies for bringing back out into the world that which was realized at this inspiring and transformative event.

Rama Jyoti Vernon

Yoga Instructor, Rama Jyoti Vernon Yoga
Yoga is a way of “Being” not just doing. It is the exploration of what Sri Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita calls inaction within an action. It is the essence and means to quiet the waves of the mind. When the waves are still, as Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras say, “The Seer and the Seen become One.” Perhaps it would be more accurate to say, they realize the oneness that already is.
