Collaboration + Connection = Co-creation
In the specialized field of Yoga Therapy, we sometimes feel we need to know it all. In this talk, we discover together the value of Collaboration, connection and co-creation. Can you Relax into the knowledge that you don’t have to know it all; that you are connected to your colleagues in ways that can nourish and sustain you? Can you relax into the knowledge that your client is the expert in their healing and that when you can help them connect to their own inner expertise, together you can co-create the practice. 2020 Plenary Speakers
