20 hours of in person classroom exploration of the intersection of Psychology and Yoga. Expect to learn about the deeper philosophical constructs that guide the yoga practice; yogic ideas that appear in modern psychological thought; and how your yoga practice can benefit your mental and emotional health. We’ll look at the workings of the nervous system and how yogic practices can help regulate and soothe a dysregulated nervous system. We’ll spend time in lecture learning the concepts, then as a group we will move and breathe to practice all the techniques in our own bodies.

This Weekend Intensive is part of Sellwood Yoga’s 300 Hour Advanced Studies Yoga Teacher Training Program as well as the “Deep Dive” Track. With instructor approval, you may be able to register for this module as a stand-alone weekend. Please email for more information.
