Yoga offers many physical and emotional benefits through posture, breath work, and meditation, which help to soothe anxiety and lift depression. In addition to yoga, there are other strategies that are evidence-based and offer holistic balancing of mood, such as reframing negative thinking and journaling. This workshop encourages weekly practice of these wellness strategies, giving you the support you need on your path to emotional wellness, especially if you experience mild to moderate depression and/or anxiety. A small group ensures you have a comfortable space for movement, as well as time to share during discussions, if desired.
A gentle yoga practice will be part of every class. No previous experience is needed. The instructor will offer demonstrations and individual modifications as needed.
Who: Anyone 18 or older, interested in exploring a weekly practice of holistic strategies and yoga for emotional wellness.
What it Is: Students will learn ways to balance the body, mind and emotions through evidence-based strategies such as meditation, breath work, journaling, re-framing negative thinking and practicing appreciation. A gentle yoga practice will be part of every class.
What it is NOT: This workshop does not offer individual counselling, but does offer group discussion, weekly practice, as well as group and instructor support.

A brief phone intake session is needed, before starting the workshop.
Participation in this class is confidential; your privacy is important to us.
