Yoga therapy is an adjunct modality that supports nervous system regulation and wellbeing by weaving together breathwork, movement, and meditation to galvanize and strengthen the body’s natural capacity for healing and restoration. A few minutes of practice a day will result in greater strength and flexibility along with a deeper sense of connection to your physical body and sense of self. As we deepen our ability to connect with our bodies we can safely explore how to approach life from a space of open heartedness and empowerment.
We aim to create a safe, non-judgmental environment that invites all clients to experience the benefits of yoga as they are interested and able. All yoga based practices are trauma informed and delivered with compassion.
Bringing yoga into your experience may take many forms but results in accessing a key intersection in healing and resilience: the present moment. Research shows that meditation and mindfulness practices are all key factors in reducing stress and lowering anxiety levels. There’s a long list of the many benefits of yoga and adding it to your therapy can be incredibly helpful as a way to balance the effort of facing difficult emotions or memories with the ease that comes from being grounded and resourced while you do it.
