The Yoga of Psychoanalysis

ROOM 810

What exactly is Yoga Therapy? How are yoga and psychoanalysis alike?  This two-part presentation about the yoga of psychoanalysis begins with a short paper discussing yoga positions and their psychoanalytic echoes, leading to a one-hour yoga class. The yoga class is a participatory workshop that encourages questions and discussions, a safe place to talk over the feelings that come up when doing yoga. The yoga part of this presentation is suitable for both beginners and seasoned yoga practitioners. Yoga is for everybody, including people who prefer to remain in their chairs.
