60 hour on-line training
(32 hours over 12 calls + self-study)
A 60 hour on-line training for yoga teachers and therapists, chaplains, hospice care workers, or anyone who wants to bring both deep presence and sound practical tools to those at end of life.
Bedside Yoga was originally borne out of the Grief and Loss classes offered at The Samarya Center. It occurred to us early on that if we were working with people who were in bereavement for a loved one, then it made sense to extend our reach to the time before the person died, and to extend our offering to the person who was at end of life.
This training is for anyone who is interested in the Death Doula or Death Cafe movements, for anyone who wants to bring a deep spiritual presence to the end of life journey, or who wants to explore the whole process of death and dying, including practical matters and family dynamics and systems.
The training is a total of 60 hours of combined online and self-study that can be applied as IAYT continuing education, but more importantly will prepare you for the experience of death and dying – for your own loved ones, for relative strangers, and for yourself.
Hours are one Tuesday and one Thursday evening, and one Sunday morning per month, for three months. There will be additional required reading as well as self-directed study and group connection through a password protected page on the website.
