Imagine a chance to work as extras on TV’s top soap opera, with America’s heartthrob, Rick Arlen! Bess is dazzled when she and Nancy are invited on the show by Rick’s beautiful costar Mattie Jensen. But she soon becomes alarmed—because the handsome actor has received some nasty threats, from a slashed photo to doctored chocolates.
Weintraub shows therapists how to introduce and apply a full range of yogic approaches: targeted breathing practices called pranayama that meet the present mood and bring it into balance; healing hand gestures called mudras; special sounds and tones called mantras; guided imagery and affirmation; yogic self-inquiry, and much more. Clinical stories and anecdotes explore how these yoga-based interventions, rooted in a firm, evidence-based foundation, can be used as effective treatments for a particular mood or mental state.
With over 50 photographs that clearly illustrate the practices and gestures, detailed, step-by-step instructions, and scripts for guided relaxation and meditations, Yoga Skills for Therapists is a practical, hands-on guide that teaches the power of basic yoga techniques to bring great self-awareness, balance, and lasting well-being to you and your clients.
