Ever thought you might benefit from a yoga practice, but just weren't comfortable in a big gym or studio-based class? Yoga can be modified to accommodate most of us, and with my background in person-centered, trauma-informed psychology, I have become skilled at adapting a basic yoga practice to meet the needs of just about anyone.
Currently, I offer classes focused on healing insomnia, mood management, addiction recovery and trauma. I have been trained in all of these modalities and have worked with students who have each of these difficulties for many years. It is my sincere hope that you will give yourself permission to try yoga as a way to heal yourself from the inside out. Descriptions and costs follow.
SLEEP LIKE A BABY:
Having trouble sleeping? even if it's only now and then, losing sleep once a week can put you into sleep deficit and will eventually affect your overall health. We all know this, yet we tend to "push on" so that we c an fulfill our daily obligations. Learn to relax your mind and your body so you can experience better sleep. Create "sleep hygiene"-healthy habits to help you manage your time and energy and ease into sleep. Each class will focus on gentle yoga poses, brief meditations and positive affirmations, and will include an introductin to Yoga Nidra, or the yoga of sleep.
CALM MIND, CALM BODY:
Anxiety and depression are rampant in the Western world. Whether you have been diagnosed or not, you have most likely experienced periods of anxiety and/or depression. If ignored, these "mood swings" can become chronic and part of your every day reality. this is not a normal healthy state of being. yoga has been proven effective for both anxiety and depression. in a small group setting, we will learn to use the breath, sound and movement to bring balance to your minds, bodies, and spirits. this is a blend of chair yoga and "mat" yoga designed with beginners in mind.
MINDFUL YOGA TO MANAGE ADDICTIONS:
We all have habits, some healthy, some not. if you ahve been captured by your own habits and feel the grip of addiction staring at you, this class could help you b reak free. In many studies, yoga has been shown to help addiction recovery. Based on current techniques for recovery, we will learn to listen to the quiet messages our bodies send us, and take control of our thoughts so that we can achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Gentle yoga, meditation, and some group interaction will create a safe space to explore simply techniques for building a life of peace and balance.
