2. Explore how the anatomy of emotion leads to 4 of the most highly diagnosed and prescribed conditions: low back pain, upper back and neck pain, anxiety and depression.
3. Learn to practice and teach two simple yet profound chair-based yoga and breath sequences which encourage neuromuscular reprogramming to address the 4 conditions.
4. Learn how to 'integrate the practice' with elements from a client's spiritual tradition and how that catalyzes trust, relaxation, community and healing for both therapist and client.
