This two-day course is designed especially for occupational therapists (OTs & OTAs,) physical therapists, mental health professionals and other allied health professionals who wish to incorporate evidence-based, trauma-sensitive yoga techniques into their clinical practices to maximize healing from:

  • combat stress
  • PTSD
  • anxiety
  • related autonomic nervous system disorders

Yoga experience is helpful but not required, as participants will be taught how to safely present and sequence a limited repertoire of therapeutic yoga poses and breathing techniques for this population.

Help Your Clients Meet The Following Goals:

► Effectively manage stress before it leads to emotional disregulation and/or inappropriate behaviors.
► Develop emotional resiliency, that is, the ability to rise to meet a challenge or threat as well as easily calm once it has passed.
► Decrease hypervigilance and overreaction to sensory input (e.g. visual, crowds, touch, noise, movement).
►Improve quality of sleep and energy level to support wellness and enhance daily
productivity.
►Decrease intrusive thoughts by learning to become present through breath and body awareness.
►Enhance one’s sense of self-worth and personal empowerment.

Sensory-Enhanced yoga (SE Yoga), evolved from the highly successful treatment protocol used with deployed military personnel in Kirkuk, Iraq, which Lynn co-developed, as well as her many years of experience as a sensory integration certified occupational therapist and registered yoga instructor.

SE Yoga applies techniques from sensory-based OT practices as well as recent findings from the fields of neurobiology and trauma psychology to address the core symptoms of PTSD. Participants are also taught how to create a “safe container” for students, both physically and psychologically, in which healing can occur.

Lynn teaches sensory-based techniques for combat stress and PTSD to both health professionals and yoga instructors, and also teaches sensory-enhanced yoga classes to veterans in her local community.   She is associate investigator and co-author of the Iraq yoga study which was published in the January/February 2012 issue of AJOT, entitled: “Effects of Sensory-Enhanced Yoga on Symptoms of Combat Stress in Deployed Military Personnel”.   Lynn is an occupational therapist at Cotting School, Lexington, MA, and a faculty member of Warriors at Ease.

This course is categorized as a PDU ID#7 and qualifies for 14 PDUs by the NBCOT (National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy, Inc.)

Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course.
A detailed 107-page manual is included in the tuition.
