Yoga for Mental Health & Addictions

I attended a training session last night at Yoga Outreach called Yoga for Mental Health & Addictions, Sep 21, 2011. The facilitators, Nicole & Sarah gave the participants a warm welcome and delivered an excellent training session. I left feeling like I got a very good understanding of what to expect and how to conduct a yoga class with students that are dealing with very serious issues in their life. I would highly recommend their training to anyone who is interested in taking their yoga in this direction. Thank You Yoga Outreach !
