Centering Mental Health | Supporting Young People Through Today’s Mental Health Crisis

Alyssa Garza

There is a mental health crisis among young people. Unparalleled levels of depression and anxiety are plaguing today’s youth. For supporting adults, guardians, or youth organizations, it can be difficult to find the tools, resources, and social skills to address these issues in a way that resonates for the younger generation.

In this event, Centering Mental Health series host Richard Lui is joined by Alyssa Garza, scholarship winner with Active Minds—a premier organization impacting young adults and mental health—for an honest dialogue about what's going on with young people today. Hear more about what is needed to support kids and teens in their mental health struggles and where yoga can help.

Walk away with a greater understanding of how you can support the young people in your life and the confidence that we can make a difference in the wellness, happiness, and health for the next generation.

CE Workshop | Self-Regulation, Part 3: Power of Surrender

Cristal Sharma & Pooja Sharma

Lean into the wisdom from The Bhagavad Gita to implement emotional, physical and cognitive self-regulation tools to improve your daily life, both as a teacher and student. Part 1 explored creating a healthy foundation of non-attachment; in Part 2, we had an engaging conversation about the Law of Action.

During the final session of this series, we tie together those lessons with the Power of Surrender. What does it mean to surrender, and how can it benefit you? We will explore how you can successfully apply these life skills in your daily life, during your yoga practice, and as a teacher.

In this workshop, you'll learn:

· The meaning of surrender and how to embrace the power in it
· How to introduce surrender successfully as a yoga teacher plus how to connect it with poses and meditation
· Why you don't need to be a scholar to teach yoga philosophy

CE Workshop | A Journey in Sanskrit, Part 3: Conjunct Consonants

Prashant Joshi & Manju Joshi

Deepen your understanding of the language of yoga—Samskrutam, or Sanskrit. Whether you are new to yoga or an experienced teacher, this workshop series is for you. We will discuss the relevance of Samskrutam for both yoga teachers and practitioners, as well as how to grow in your own practice and teaching. In the final part of this series, presenters Prashant and Manju Joshi expand on our previous discussion and knowledge of consonants. You'll have an opportunity to see, hear, and practice the conjuct consonants, recitations, and related yogic vocabulary.

In this workshop, you will learn:

· The historic evolution of Samskrutam and why it is an integral part of yogic learning
· The rich vowels and consonants of Samskrutam
· Structure and correct pronunciation

Viewing the first two parts of the series is not necessary for attendance, but helpful. This workshop builds on materials covered in Part 2 of this series, and we encourage you to view that recording prior to joining this event. YA Members can find those recordings in the Event Archive.
