Adulting. You know what I’m talking about. Endless things to do. Endless stressors. Endless thoughts racing in your brain, making it sometimes impossible to sleep, or even sit down for one second, let alone be present. Our Nervous Systems are overwhelmed, stuck on overdrive, and tired. Let’s make adulting more peaceful and enjoyable together.
In the Adult Yoga group, my intention is to bring experiential movement and calm through breath and yoga practice. This will look like one hour of learning new mindfulness and emotional coping skills, and one hour of practicing them.
Yoga can be seen as a practice to strengthen the body, get a good sweat going, or even a competition to see who has the bendiest downward dog? Yoga can be these things, but it is so much more. Yoga not only benefits the body, but has outstanding healing effects on the mind, the body’s nervous system, and spiritual wellbeing. I have had many years using movement and yoga to supplement my own healing journey, and because of my experience I have recently become a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance to supplement my clinical training in healing trauma. I figured it was time I use this experiential learning modality in a group format to help my clients EXPERIENCE peace, and calm, not just talk about it.
About Mindfulness Skills:
I have training in several mindfulness modalities, not just Yoga. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy trainings have helped my clients experience emotional balance in their life and wellbeing.
Put the two together:
The first half of group will be practicing Yoga and Skills techniques, and the in the second half of group, you can expect to sit back on your Yoga props and get ready to learn and practice some serious mindfulness and emotional regulation skills that will help you regulate, both on and off your Yoga mat.
See you on your mat weekly, for a two hour fantastic, downward dogging, mind-calming, connecting group experience.
Cost: 50$ per session, for 12 weeks, and must be able to commit to 12 weeks. You can pay weekly or all upfront. I also provide a workbook/binder with skill teachings in it, a 10$ one time fee.
When: Starting Fall 2019.
Where: Location to be determined
What to Bring: You, water, an open mind, and your yoga mat if you have one! If you don’t, I have extra:) Try not to eat a heavy meal before hand (yoga+food baby don’t mix well), and feel free to bring a snack for the second half of session if you would like.
Other: You don’t have to have any experience in Yoga, or in any sort of mindfulness training. I am trained how to help beginners as well as experienced Yogis.
