We are pleased to announce that Dr. Stephanie Foster has earned the International Yoga Alliance designation of Registered Yoga Teacher 500.
Dr. Foster has completed a 300 hour yoga teacher training certification over the past year. According to the International Yoga Alliance, an RYT500 is a teacher who has successfully completed a 500-hour yoga teacher training that is registered with Yoga Alliance. Dr. Foster trained under Prema Yoga master teacher, Lisa Marie Jansen. Dr. Stephanie especially focused on how self-regulation is enhanced and intensified from a regular yoga practice. During this training, she published You-Tube videos on Pratyahara (a sensory withdrawal technique) and a yoga class for Yoga for Women over 50. She created a 2.5 hour workshop focused on helping Women over 50 years old remain active and healthy through a regular yoga practice.
This yoga certification is used during her Occupational Therapy sessions with children who have difficulty with self-regulation. You might find her offering deep breathing or strength & flexibility training during a session. This is just one more way Kid’s Work Therapy helps children to focus and function without medication.
Please join us in congratulating Dr. Foster in this accomplishment. Ahhh, breathe!
