Yoga & Psychology: Understanding Transference with Dr. Margarita & Alexandra Holmes

Yoga touches many different aspects of a persons life. Because yoga teachers speak to matters of the body, mind, and heart, sometimes yoga students project their expectations, ideas, and emotions onto them.  This is called transference, which often stems from
unresolved feelings from the past.  Dealing with transference is a tool often missing from the yoga teacher's tool kit.  Understanding transference is extremely important as yoga teachers cultivate relationships with clients, and become leaders in their communities.

Join international best selling psychotherapist, Dr. Margarita Holmes along side long-time yoga teacher trainer Alexandra Holmes in this powerful and engaging workshop exploring transference, healthy boundaries and relationship building.  Learn how to recognize when transference occurs, and how to can address it. This workshop is  perfect for yoga teachers and anyone who has a therapeutic role. 

Cost: $40.00
