Frontline Wellness :  A Yoga Workshop for Care Providers

 see below for more information!

Fall 2014 workshops: TBA

This evidence based workshop is designed to give care providers the tools to cultivate capacity and skillful resilience.  Join with others who understand what it is to work on the frontlines of care every day, whether in a clinic, hospital, shelter, program, or hospice.  Experience the support of a compassionate group setting while you learn to nurture yourself with unconditional self-care.  Yoga is the ideal modality through which to explore wellness.  The teachings and practice of yoga work on the mind and on the body while you learn to follow your own innate wisdom on the wellness path that best serves you.

Whether you have been working in your chosen field for years or are just starting out, this workshop will provide you with practical tools to increase your energy, find your authentic center, cherish your relationships with loved ones and improve your overall well being while bringing your best self to care for those you serve.

Frontline Wellness is offered periodically in Fairbanks, AK as a multi-week workshop series and in stand alone weekend workshop sessions.  

Frontline Wellness is also available in half day, full day or multi-day sessions at conferences, staff development trainings or as an elective workplace wellness program.  Please contact Jasmine  to discuss rates, scheduling, and your staff's unique needs in regards to this option.
