Graduate Series: Neurogenic Yoga

Graduates of our 2012 YTT-NL program Carolyn Hapgood and Helena Butler have gone on to make a big impact in the local wellness community. Since graduating with their 200 hour certification Carolyn and Helena have gone on to become Registered Yoga Therapists (a 200 hour certification is a pre-requisite for this training) and Internationally Certified Neurogenic Yoga™ Teachers. In fact, they are the only two Neurogenic Yoga Teachers certified in Canada!

From Carolyn’s website:

Neurogenic Yoga™ combines postures, breathing and a natural shaking/tremoring response of the body to relieve stress, tension and trauma.

Neurogenic Yoga™ is especially suitable for treating chronic pain, daily stress & pent up tension, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Parkinson’s Disease, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, to name a few. It may be suitable for almost anyone with the exception of pregnant women.

Some of the many BENEFITS of Neurogenic Yoga™:

  • A safe and natural way to release chronic pain and tension
  • Experience positive changes in your sleep patterns
  • Change deep seated habits
  • A sense of feeling more relaxed and less impacted by stressors
  • Bring homeostasis to your body
  • *****Designed to eventually be done without the aid of a teacher and can therefore cut down on health-care expenses
