Heartland Yoga, in downtown Iowa City, will offer a special two-day training session, Yoga for the Health Professional, Thursday, August 14 and Friday, August 15 from 9am-12pm, 1pm-4pm both days. This unique course is for any health professional (i.e. nurses, physicians, mental health providers, PT’s, OT’s, massage therapists) who seeks to be better informed about yoga as a healing modality for a wide range of diseases and conditions. It is helpful to have some personal experience with yoga, but it is not necessary.
Betsy Rippentrop, Ph. D., licensed psychologist and yoga teacher, will teach this course that includes lecture, yoga, breath practice, discussion, and practical ways to integrate yoga into work with patients and clients. Participants will learn about the current research on yoga’s effect on physical and mental health, discuss possible mechanisms for yoga’s benefits, explore yoga as a self-care tool, discuss ethics of integrating yoga, cover practical tips for how to discuss yoga with clients, and practice creating a treatment plan that integrates yoga. Continuing Education Credits will be available.
The cost of this training is $395 for health professionals and $195 for students. For more information or to register, visit www.icheartlandyoga.com
