Yoga as Therapy

 Yoga Therapy is an exploration of "embodied mindfulness" to help you get connected to your body, and improve your stress coping mechanisms.

Yoga for Anxiety, Stress & Trauma Recovery

This practice was developed to offer a process of self-discovery.  Yoga Therapy addresses both psychological and physical issues, such as stress, anxiety, trauma and pain in your body and mind.

The process itself is defined by you and the kind of support you need, whether it is emotional, physical or spiritual. It teaches strategies for managing stress reactions, building on coping skills, learning about your body and how you are in it.

Yoga for Anxiety, Stress and Trauma compliments traditional psychotherapies and physical therapies by supporting the mind-body connection.

Our yoga therapist Shari Arial  PTSD & Trauma Informed yoga therapist.  Shari facilitates a safe space for noticing yourself and how you are in your body, so it is a natural process for you to make your own connections about thought and body stress.
