Sunrise Yoga: Flow into CBT

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As OCD therapists, we're good at asking our clients to put themselves in unusual, sometimes uncomfortable, positions — usually in terms of how they think and behave. What if we could boost that by doing the same with their bodies? Learn about a novel approach to OCD treatment that incorporates yoga, which does more than just relax the body, it strengthens the brain's executive functioning skills (even more so than traditional physical activities). Get tips on how to incorporate yoga with your CBT/ERP practice and learn first-hand by participating in a mini-session led by a certified yoga instructor and LPC who will guide the group through yoga's three basic elements: Posture, breathing & meditation. Q&A opportunity to follow the practice.

YOGA MATS WILL BE PROVIDED (OR YOU CAN BRING YOUR OWN)!
