Yoga and Mental Health with Kristin Vikjord
Reducing post-pandemic stress and mental fatigue.
Much needed and so relevant at this moment in time, Yoga and Mental Health is a course designed to empower people who have experienced the profound uneasiness of the current pandemic and would like to regain a sense of emotional wellbeing.
Kristin Vikjord, clinical psychologist, yoga and mindfulness facilitator and acclaimed writer of ‘Inner Spark’, is the lead teacher on this unique online course. In the course, you will be given a grounding in the therapeutic applications of yoga and how these can be applied to reduce overwhelm and worry, improve sleep hygiene and restore mental health agency.
We’re living in an intense time, where daily life has become restricted, challenging and uncertain. This continuous stress activation eventually takes a toll on our mental health and resilience. We cannot change the current circumstances but we can empower our own wellbeing, by adapting how we respond physically and emotionally, without being drawn into negative emotional spirals. Learning how to take care of ourselves can reduce mental fatigue, chaotic thoughts and improve our sleeping patterns.
This course, one of our self-care and self-development modules for yoga teachers and Yoga Therapists, can be taken independently, as an elective.
