Yoga and Art Therapy in a Therapeutic Context

posted Feb 2, 2009, 8:07 AM by Evergreen Art Therapy Association   [ updated Feb 2, 2009, 8:08 AM by EATA Admin ]

Yoga and Art Therapy in a Therapeutic Context
(6 CE hours)

Tuition: $130 general public; $120 Antioch alumni, faculty and staff
To register: www.antiochseattle.edu/ce/courses-psychology.html

With the growing understanding of the mind/body connection for greater
mental health, both yoga and art offer profound ways of connecting
people to their authentic source. Many types of clients respond to the
sense of groundedness that creativity and movement bring to the
experience of counseling.

In this experiential workshop, learn how to bring a mindfulness-based
practice to sessions with clients. Find out what helps clients find
their own sense of personal power in the therapeutic process. Develop
confidence in integrating art and yoga with clients by addressing a
range of clinical issues. Gain an understanding of the basics of the
chakra system for emotional well-being, the essentials of yoga therapy
and Jungian art therapy, as well as the use of mandala and color work
with clients.

Basic art materials will be provided. Please bring a yoga mat and any
"props" (such as a foam block, cushion, etc.) you may need. Wear
comfortable clothes.

Instructors: Rebecca Bloom, MPS, ATR-BC, LMHC, is a visiting core
faculty in the graduate psychology program at Antioch University
Seattle. She has a private practice in Seattle. www.bloomcounseling.com

Carey DeMartini, ATR-BC, LMHC, RYT has been integrating

"Depression manifests as our inability to be present for the experience of life."
Stephen Cope

The practice of yoga can provide physical relief for symptoms that often accompany depression as well as calm the flow of negative thoughts, help to release stuck emotions, decrease anxiety, and allow for greater overall balance between the mind and body. We will explore how yoga philosophy, asana practice, and creativity can liberate us from living in the past or future to being in the present moment. We will incorporate meditation techniques, chanting, art, pranayama, yoga postures, and dialogue into our practices and cultivate a field where our relationship to the inner witness that resides in us all, who sees all, and knows that we are already perfect and whole can grow and thrive. This 8 week long workshop is designed to offer tools for individuals who are currently experiencing mild-moderate depression. It is not intended to be a substitute for therapy, but would be a supportive adjunct to current treatment.

About the Instructor:
Carey DeMartini is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Art Therapist, and Registered Yoga Teacher with over 8 years of facilitating yoga, art, and therapy groups and credits yoga and art for helping her to maintain a sense of equilibrium in her life.
