Yoga In a Psychiatric Setting : LUSENET : Teacher Development : One Thread

From: Britt Hello there, I have begun a new project teaching yoga two hours a week to patients in a psychiatric clinic. They are pretty heavily medicated, with a number of different reasons to be in therapy. Some are quite present and mobile, while others have limited functioning, mentally and physically. I am also planning to instill a meditation experience and verbal processing about the class, along with physical postures. This is a fascinating opportunity for me, and I would love to hear feedback from anyone who has worked with these types of students. Also, any literature or resources would be greatly appreciated. This is in Atlanta, GA and I can be reached at in light, love britt
