This workshop will be conducted by Sal Flynn. Sal Flynn is an anxiety specialist and highly experienced and engaging Yoga therapy educator and mentor. In this workshop you will integrate the principles and practices of yoga, yoga therapy, neuroscience, and mindfulness and learn practices that we as yoga teachers and therapists can offer to support our clients and students who experience anxiety.
