Saturday December 16th : 1:00-4:00pm
The Psychobiology of Yoga by Keelyn Riley E-RYT 500
Cost: Only $40.

Beyond the musculoskeletal system, the practice of yoga can create changes on a deeper level. There is a reason we feel so good after practicing. There is a reason many of us our drawn to practice.

In this workshop, we will explore the neurobiology of the practice and how this relates to our inner personal experience. Yoga changes us deeper than the physical structure and as we understand this more clearly, we can thus assist in creating an intentional practice to evolve beyond the mat. Applicable to yoga teachers, dedicated practitioners, and those curious about the effects of yoga.

Keelyn began teaching Yoga in 1998 just a few years after launching into a career in mental health. She explored closely the tools that can cross over to both therapy and yoga practices as a way to develop a more holistic approach to well-being. She currently has a thriving private practice as a psychotherapist and Certified Yoga Therapist. She can be found in the Flagstaff community teaching many things from fitness inspired yoga to Yoga Nidra. She has a diverse training background in both yoga and mental health treatment.
