Invitation and news

Sangha Yoga & Mental Health.

a free network meeting

In 2011, I started to organize meetings. I met people from different professional fields/ disciplines and yoga lineages, but we all had in common that we agreed that yoga could be great to add to existing therapy to the patients in Mental Health care. During these meetings there is room to exchange knowledge and to network.

With this INVITATION: join for free! Please send an email if you are planning to come.

  • When: Thursday September 12th 16.00u – 18.00u
  • Where: Delight Yoga location Weteringschans 53, Amsterdam (the beautiful 1st floor room)

On request a special edition: We will talk about Trauma Sensitive Yoga. So, please join when you did a training on this subject and share experiences (maybe match up with others?)

  • Did you manage to set up a (Trauma Sensitive) Yoga class?
  • Did you manage to set up a yoga class for another special population?
  • How did you do this?
  • What are difficulties in setting up such yoga classes?
  • How did training by David Emerson help you (or another training)?

Please join the network on the Facebook-group if you were ever at one of these meetings before. Let’s make this network more useful this way.

Yoga & Mental Health network meeting

Omdat jij op één of andere manier te maken hebt met YOGA én een SPECIALE DOELGROEP in bijvoorbeeld de gezondheidszorg, ben je uitgenodigd voor de 2-jaarlijkse ‘Y&P netwerk bijeenkomst’. Het doel is netwerken en ervaringen en informatie delen.  Er zijn meer mensen (in en rond Amsterdam) die yogales geven aan een bijzondere doelgroep of yoga therapeutisch gebruiken. En dit geeft de gelegenheid elkaar te ontmoeten in een ontspannen sfeer. 

Wanneer: maandag 24-09-2012 om 16.00u tot 18.00u

Waar: MoleMann Tielens, Hoogte Kadijk 61 hs, 1018 BE Amsterdam (centrum)

Info: of bel: 06-18786883 

Wil je even laten weten of je komt? Er zijn geen kosten aan verbonden, maar netwerken is leuker met meer mensen. Een (kleine) donatie voor een goed doel is natuurlijk welkom!  Tot dan! Groet Anneke – twitter: @Yoga_Amsterdam
