How does stress affect your brain? How can we develop techniques to build a "better" more resilient brain?
This program, led by Julie Fetherston, combines yoga, psychology and integrates research from interpersonal neurobiology to create simple, effective, evidence-based practices to reduce stress immediately, while creating new neural networks for increased resiliency over time.
We will begin the day with a walk in the calming and stunningly beautiful landscape of the UC Hopland Research and Extension Center, led by Director Dr. Kim Rodrigues.
A catered lunch will be provided to complement the health benefits we will be learning about during the day.
As a former Youth Development and Natural Resources Advisor Julie is uniquely qualified to understand the organizational and individual stressors that can be faced by staff. She was a key developer of the California Naturalist Program and continues to develop innovative programs and processes. This workshop that will help staff (and anyone facing chronic stress) better manage stress today, while building long term resiliency for the future.
