Yoga Therapy for Adult ADHD
4-Week Workshop Series
Led by Sally Williams, MA, RYT-200
March 28 – April 18, 2024
Thursdays from 6:00 – 7:30pm
Whether you have been officially diagnosed with ADHD or are self-diagnosed, medicated or unmedicated, this series will teach you about various shared elements of the ADHD experience and introduce yogic tools and practices that can increase self-understanding and self-compassion, help with emotional regulation, reduce the effects of Rejection Sensitivity Dysphoria, and increase focus and attention in a low-pressure, low-engagement community setting.
Each week, we will integrate clinical psycho-education with yogic practices including mudras (hand positions), pranayama (yogic breathwork), asana (physical practice), and Yoga Nidra (guided yogic relaxation) to provide you with fresh insights about yourself and your ADHD and to expand your ADHD toolkit.
This is a trauma-informed practice and modifications will be offered to suit differences in comfort levels and needs. Practitioners of all levels are welcome, and no previous yoga experience is necessary. Please bring a mat if you have one, or email the facilitators to borrow a mat at no extra cost. The class fee includes an eye pillow for you to keep, an informational packet with clinical information and yogic practices for you to refer to and make notes on, and continued access to class audio recordings so that you can follow along with the practices at home once the class has concluded.
About the Teacher
Sally Williams, MA, RYT-200
I began teaching yoga in 2011 in Fort Collins, CO. I taught in local studios, and in the Boulder County Jail and other correctional facilities after doing the Prison Yoga Training with James Fox in 2012. I received the Trauma-Sensitive Yoga certification and Overcoming Anxiety certification from Sundara Yoga Therapy in Austin, TX in 2013. Practicing trauma-informed yoga and Yoga Nidra in correctional facilities and with underserved populations inspired me to get my Masters in Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology from Naropa in 2017. After graduating, I provided psychotherapy and therapeutic yoga to people transitioning out of jail and prison. After having my own kids, I transitioned to working with new parents, people with complex trauma and c-PTSD, and adults with ADHD. I am now a registered psychotherapist, yoga therapist, and coach in private practice in Boulder County.
