Yoga and Mindfulness Retreats, Classes, and Workshops
Based in traditional gentle hatha yoga and mindfulness meditation and informed by work as a therapist, this holistic practice can help with stress reduction; grounding; mind-body wellness; being in the present moment; building strength and resilience; distress tolerance; self-regulation; managing somatic manifestations of emotional overload; preventing burnout, and post-traumatic growth through embodiment.
Many individuals and groups have benefitted from my skills as a therapist, mindfulness facilitator, and yoga teacher over the years.
Why not give this gift to your clients or team a to promote wellness or consider adding yourself to a waitlist for a trauma-informed gentle mindful yoga class? Yoga is for every body and every body is for yoga!
I am grateful for having had the opportunity to train under the tutelage of Dr. Madan Bali of Yoga Bliss, to have completed Lisa Danylchuk's Yoga for Trauma training, and to have facilitated many groups over the years, including in post-secondary educational, private, healthcare, and community settings.
