Online Counselling Skills for yoga therapists

In this online course you will learn some of the counselling skills that you will need for your work as a yoga therapist.

You have already been trained to tailor the practice to the person, and while the aim is to help people regain or maintain health through movement and breathing, we know there’s always a psychological component to the healing process too.

Considering that responsibility, it is extremely useful to be aware of, and be able to use, some basic counselling skills. Not only will it give you more confidence in your practice, but it will help your clients along on their own personal healing journeys.

That is why we’re offering a fully immersive, 5-day basic counseling skills for yoga therapists workshop.

The course is lead by Esther van der Sande, a professional counsellor, somatic psychotherapist, and trauma-sensitive yoga teacher, trainer & supervisor at Trauma Sensitive Yoga Nederland.

All of these skills are brought to bear in the workshop, giving students an incredibly well informed, and thorough grounding in basic counseling.
