You will learn about proposed outcomes of yoga as an intervention for substance use disorder. This training will include some basic mindful movement skills you can share with your clients to assist them with improving their emotion regulation and brain function, both important components of early recovery skills. You will have an opportunity to experience a full length, chair yoga class designed specifically to detoxify the body and support recovery. You will also have the opportunity to participate in a dharma circle which can also be used as an intervention and is similar to a process group.
