Course Structure & Price
We meet once a week for two hours over an 8-week period. During each session, we inform you pf how the mind, body and brain work together from a scientific perspective and teach you how to use practices that will promote well-being in all these aspects of yourself. Sessions include a 1 hour 10 minutes yoga practice, breath work, additional mind-body activities and a group discussion.
During the first two weeks of the course, we will focus on regulating the breath as a mode to alter the functioning of your nervous system so that you can manage stress with greater ease. From weeks 3 – 5 we concentrate on the relationship between body and mood and in weeks 6 – 8 we focus specifically on the mind.
To support your practice you are given a comprehensive manual and a CD set (download is available from itunes) with eight tracks/guided practices, which coincide with each week of the course.

How is this course different from other course for emotional healing?
Usually courses will focus on just the mind or just the body as a way to enhance mental wellbeing. We understand that the most effective way to encourage long-term transformation is by focussing on the entire person. Methods that focus just on the mind forget that mental habits are deeply connected with how the brain functions.
Without movement or breath work, a person will struggle to use the power of the mind to change deeply entrenched patterns of thinking and reacting. Likewise, if we only focus on the body we may overlook the reasons why we are so tied to particular ways of reacting to the environment.
Research reveals that faster and more long-term healing occurs through the intelligent integration of mind and body techniques.
