Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self realization. Yoga means union – the union of body with consciousness and consciousness with the soul. Yoga cultivates the ways of maintaining a balanced attitude in day to day life and endows skill in the performance of one’s actions. –B.K.S. Iyengar

People come to yoga for a multitude of reasons. Whether you’re looking to increase strength or flexibility, recover from an injury or prevent one, or developing a resource to cope with the daily stresses of what life throws your way, yoga can help. While there are no guarantees, there is also nothing to lose in trying and self awareness is the very beginning.

My teaching style integrates principles of functional movement, spirituality, and positive psychology, with an emphasis on yoga as an accessible and sustainable mind-body practice to help cope with stress. Yoga has deeply impacted my understanding of mind-body psychology and the necessity of a holistic approach that addresses the intersections of emotional, mental, and physical well-being.

Psychology of Yoga Workshop

April 8, 2018, 2:00pm - April 8, 2018, 4:30pm

Does yoga really change the brain? What is the connection between the mind and body in the context of yoga and mindfulness? Is there a relationship between the physical yoga practice and our ability to cope and manage stress in our everyday lives? In this workshop we’ll cover some of the most prominent research, what has been found, what hasn’t, and what benefits and implications yoga has for the brain, mind, and physical body. This workshop will primarily consist of lecture with some experiential/movement practice. All levels are welcome and encouraged to participate and enjoy a deeper understanding of how yoga impacts our well-being. Kristine has an M.A. in Psychology and has been teaching yoga full time since 2008. Her focus in working with private clients and teaching public and corporate classes integrates the fields of Psychology, Yoga, Biomechanics, Massage Therapy and Neuroscience. Her research studies the links between mindfulness and awareness in the body and how these become tools for us to better cope with, and manage stress. Pricing: $40 until April 1st, $50 thereafter Register: yogawithkristinetom@gmail.com
