Yoga Therapy for Groups

Yoga Therapy for Groups explores the mind/body connection through yoga and mindfulness practices without direct one-on-one attention. This can be particularly useful when there is a shared theme or issue among the group members. (For example recovery/support, weight management, smoking cessation.) 

The full 8 week program is built around the process of change.  Each week has a theme like awareness, acceptance, discernment, and truth. The weekly themes build upon each other for a comprehensive and therapeutic process. 

Enhance the experience by including a facilitated sharing circle.

Contact Alison for more information. 

“Incredible, very gentle and enlightening, just what I needed. I got clear ideas, images, sensations and an awareness of where I need to go in my healing. I can make general and specific changes in my life to achieve my intention as well as self-acceptance for where I am resistant to change.”
— RP, 'Yoga for Change' group class participant

Exploring the Prana Body

In Yoga and Ayurveda, the physical body is enlivened by energy, or Prana. Within the body Prana moves in 5 directions, governing various bodily functions. It also influences the processes of the mind. In this workshop we explore what is essentially the mind-body connection. Through discussion, yoga and breathing exercises, and guided awareness, we will sense the prana body, and learn ways to draw on it to support our overall health and well-being.  No yoga experience necessary. 

2.5 hour workshop.

“At its heart, hatha yoga is more than just flexibility or strength in postures; it is the management of prana, the vital life force that animates all levels of being” 
— Sandra Anderson
