Yoga and mental health takes a holistic (bio-psycho-social-spiritual) approach to mental health and explores ways in which yoga may support mental health and in addition shift our understanding of the mental illness. This course will provide foundational knowledge on current understandings of mental illnesses, and how yoga may be used as adjunctive support. While this course does not provide diagnostic and prescriptive practices, the goal is to encourage understanding, reduce stigma, challenge labels, and explore how we might use yoga to support individuals in wellness and healing.

Learning Outcomes:

Understand the biological implications and contributors to mental health including the brain and nervous system

Understanding psychological implications and contributors to mental health including perception, memory, attachment, and identity.
