This is a unique certificate program, developed over years, by clinical psychologist, yoga and mindfulness facilitator Kristin Vikjord.
The Yogi Facilitator Leadership Program´s core practice is Mindful Yoga as Applied Practice, for mental health conditions and emotional wellbeing. This practice is trauma informed, and is focused on the individual practitioners experience of embodiment. The aim is to strengthen the positive connection with the body, learning how to find ease in unease, and knowing when to do what.
The program has come to life through Kristin´s experience from teaching yoga in clinical settings, in inpatient and out patient units, with eating disorders, addictions, trauma and more. The arc of the program has been curated carefully, to ensure a didactical framework that support the philosophies, theory and practices it` s based upon.
