Leah Madamba, Executive Director of Vive Family Support Program, along with local Yoga Instructor Allison Jordan, presented a unique pre-conference workshop at the Southeast Regional NATSAP conference in Asheville last month.
The workshop titled "Taking it off the Yoga Mat: Lessons for Emerging Leaders" gave attendees some innovative and useful tools to take back to their work environments.
Through the dialogue of the yoga class coupled with the pre and post discussion group and journaling, participants were able to better understand how an intense awareness in the moment of their body and their surroundings can positively impact what they bring to the table at their place of work. For those who are just beginning to embrace their journey as a leader and suddenly find co-workers, clients, and others looking up to them for advice and direction, this workshop helped to hone their inner instincts as they continue down their path as emerging leaders.
Participants in attendance came from various positions within our field and were able to have an opportunity to share about themselves, their challenges and support each other in finding innovative solutions based on the instruction and experience Leah and Allison offered.
