Not only for yoga teachers, this day is for any body who is curious about yoga therapy and what happens when we use the body as a vehicle for enquiry and creativity. Even if you have previous knowledge and experience, the insights are never the same at any given moment. 
Dip your toe in or go dive deep, it's up to you... If you already work therapeutically and would like to: 
1. discover even more ways to take your unique gift out into the world 
2. Listen less to the inner critic and more to your inner wisdom 
3. Re-connect with the intelligence of the body through embodied mindfulness 
4. Receive some practices so support your own healing journey Guided with trauma-sensitivity by yoga therapist and yoga therapy trainer at Yoga United Education, Judy Hirsh Sampath
During an intensely emotional period in her life, Judy came to a profound insight through yoga therapy - What would happen if I focused on what is right with me instead of trying to fix what is wrong with me? My body loves me and all I need to do is love it back. The truth was simple and Judy has been exploring ways into the body’s wisdom ever since and how to receive messages and take action. 
As a yoga therapist and educator, she engages health seekers, truth seekers and wisdom holders in becoming experts in themselves - to find their own answers, to make wise choices, to stress less and feel good inside. 
She leads classes, workshops and courses in yoga and yoga therapy for ways to self-care, gain deeper self-awareness and healing into wholeness. The Yoga United Education diploma in Yoga Therapy in 10 modules starts with a 60 hour BWY quality-assured foundation module.
This day is an introduction for those who love learning and enquiring deeply with trauma sensitivity as well as light-heartedness. Judy will be sharing some presentation material, guiding you in warming up the body with some gentle movement, embodied mindfulness and meditative practices, encouraging group discussion, Q&A, and offering a yoga nidra to complete the day.
