The start of a new year is the perfect time to reset old habits of body and mind. All of us fall into patterns of behavior we later realize do not support our physical and emotional wellness. Such behaviors might involve diet, exercise, procrastination, internet use, dating the wrong people, or the use of tobacco, alcohol or drugs.
This workshop will teach cutting-edge cognitive-behavioral and yoga therapy tools we can use to regain control over lost aspects of our lives. First we’ll review recent studies on habits and addiction – research that flies in the face of much we’ve been taught about the choices we make. Then we’ll look at the brain’s reward circuitry and new findings relating to desire and control. Finally we’ll learn and practice 8 different CBT and yoga therapy tools that each have demonstrated efficacy in helping to extinguish old behaviors and install new ones. Before we close we’ll teach relapse prevention, an essential piece in any program of change.
