Course Description

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an evidence-based practice that provides a compassionate approach to working with our clients. LifeForce Yoga® (LFY) is an evidence-based practice to manage moods founded on the principle of compassionate self-awareness. IFS and LFY provide a potent combination for helping clients self-regulate, experience self-efficacy and build resilience. As part of this workshop, we will integrate yoga practices for accessing Self energy and meeting our parts. Every day will include accessible movement, yoga breathing, simple guided relaxation, experiential exercises, demonstrations, case studies, and clinical applications. Throughout the week, you will experience how the integration of IFS and LFY enhances the healing process.

We will practice accessible LFY skills appropriate in the consultation room that help:

  • Access Self energy

  • Strengthen Self-to-part relationships

  • Un-blend parts

  • Care for parts not yet unburdened

  • Safely tend to exiles not yet unburdened

In the process of learning LFY practices to help clients self-regulate, increase self-efficacy and self-compassion, you will connect to the wholeness and healing capacity within yourself. Return home empowered with your own practice, a better understanding of the IFS model, and ready to share these tools with your clients. All bodies and abilities are welcome! No mats necessary!
