Group: Yoga for Emotional Resilience, Relaxation and Self-Awareness

This 8-week group offers individuals the opportunity to practice postures, breathing techniques, guided visualizations and relaxation in a group setting. Group members will also practice mindfulness - the process of attending to one’s experience of the present moment in a compassionate, non-judgemental manner.


what is mindfulness-based yoga? how can it help?

 
Mindfulness and Yoga for Mental Health

Mindfulness is the practice of:

Paying attention to our experience in the following ways: intentionally, non-judgementally, and in the present moment… which is not always as easy as it sounds!

Practicing mindful yoga is useful in increasing self-awareness and uncovering patterns as well as creating curiosity, compassion and tolerance of uncomfortable and difficult experiences.

I will assist you in learning and practicing mindfulness and yoga-based strategies involving movement, breath, and mindful awareness to address both physical responses (i.e. shallow breathing) and cognitive responses (i.e. constant rumination) to emotional distress.

 

who is this group for?

what happens during the group?

This group is designed for individuals looking to become more aware of the physiological and emotional effects of anxiety, stress, depression, and how to improve overall emotional wellbeing, regulation, focus and mindfulness skills. During this group, members will learn and practice yoga tools and strategies as well ass discuss how they can be used to manage emotional distress. Members will be also invited to reflect on their experiences and connect with others during the group.
