Therapy for the therapist
Janell Kalifey

In this episode of Doing Differently, Marcel welcomes Janell Kalifey, a psychotherapist who is also one of his Yoga Therapy clients. Marcel and Janell discuss the role of a Yoga Therapy practice as a complement to Therapy and Psychoanalysis.

Episode 14
Mind-body practices for your patients and clients
Carrie Heeter
Yoga Mind Tools LLC, Professor Emeritus, Department of Media and Information, Michigan State University

How do the mind and the body become more integrated? How do you assist the “natural intelligence” of your body function in concert with your mind? In this episode, Marcel welcomes back Carrie Heeter, and together they discuss some essential factors of effective mind-body practices. They emphasize how mind-body practices must be accessible, appropriate, and must contain a method of progression specific to each individual.

Episode 16
Using movement and breath to support talk therapy and psychotherapy
Becky Deano
Yoga Therapist and Psychotherapist

Becky and Marcel discuss how movement and breathing techniques can support talk therapy and psychotherapy. They emphasize how movement and breathing can be used to change the state of the client so the session can be more effective and allow the practitioner to see the state of the client more clearly.

The more therapists work with the breath, the more they can experience how to bring themselves into that space and place and be able to live from there a little bit more.
