Yoga For Professionals

Susan Schrott has designed evidence based yoga, meditation and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) lectures and workshops specifically for busy professionals in business, medical and mental health fields.

She teaches participants to establish a daily practice including both meditation and yoga postures to enhance and sustain one’s overall well being.

These workshops are especially useful for people working in offices, who sit in chairs or who do not have access to a yoga mat.

Schrott brings to her workshops a rich body of personal and professional knowledge and experience about the stressors of working in hectic and demanding professions. It is not uncommon for busy professionals to spend long hours caring and working for others leaving little time to tend to their own medical, physical, psychological and spiritual health. With that in mind, she set out to create practical and informative workshops geared specifically for those in these demanding fields.

The ancient art and science of yoga uses traditional methods of breathing techniques, yoga postures, chakras, mudras and sound to inspire and teach us in the practice of accepting this moment and ourselves just as we are. The consistent theme of "witness consciousness" and the non-judgemental awareness of self and others is key to the restorative and healing practice of yoga. Yoga offers a range of poses, which flow from one to the next routinely encouraging one to hold a pose to better develop the ability to tolerate stillness of mind and body while increasing the ability be  at home in one's body.

Yoga has been shown to decrease anxiety, increase stamina, enhance creativity, and develop an  overall and genuine sense of well being. Yoga and meditation lower blood pressure, reduce levels of cortisol and encourage relaxation, all which may aid in the reduction of anxiety and depression.

Yogic breathing known as pranayama, emphasizes slow and deep abdominal breathing, which facilitates a sense of calm and an increased ability to tolerate a range of feelings. The goal of this presentation is to learn and implement the use of a compassionate approach to the consistent use of yoga and meditation. By utilizing movement, breath, imagery and meaningful intention, thoughts and feelings are accessible allowing one to reframe and witness their responses to people, events and stressful situations without needing to react impulsively or self destructively.  There is an increase in self-esteem, self awareness and the ability to "notice"  without judging oneself or others with confidence and insight.
