Yoga Therapy Workshop: Befriending The Body
w/ Jess Maitri LCSW, Certified Yoga Therapist, RYT-500
February 11 and 20, 6-8PM.
Yothera benefits anyone who wants to increase their mental well-being, and release themselves from negative life patterns, and is looking for a holistic approach to healing past trauma and emotional wounds. The following are the most common symptoms that could benefit from this work:
1) Low self-esteem
2) Don’t trust themselves to make “correct” decisions
3) Feel stuck in a way of life that isn’t working, and don’t know how to get out.
4) Codependency in relationships
5) Unhealthy body habits (over/under eating, self-harm behaviors)
8) Difficulty speaking and owning their Truth
9) Body pain, or re-current health issues (ie: body hurts, inflammation, recurring injuries, chronic pain)
10) Lack of boundaries with themselves and with others
Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to be in good physical condition or have good body awareness/connection to benefit from Yothera. The mind/body/spirit benefits depends on the client’s willingness to be fully present to their experience, without judgement, moment-to-moment. Don’t let the word “yoga” scare you. Yoga simply means union. All levels of embodiment can invite deep, profound experiences and insights very quickly.
As part of healing trauma, being witnessed in your experience in a non-judgmental and confidential way is imperative to finding resolution and meaning. Turn your pain into your purpose….see the bigger picture, and feel connected instead of isolated. There are so many others who are longing to connect in the same ways that you are. We hope you can join us for this special two-hour workshop on November 15th!

Find stillness with Carrie as your guide in this lovely 2-hour Mala and Yin Yoga workshop.
We will spend sixty minutes strengthening and healing with a Yin Yoga practice and follow it up with a crafts session making Mala meditation bracelets.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Yin Yoga targets the deep connective tissue, joints, and ligaments in the body. It offers the chance to be still and present while you create more space in the mind as you breathe and deeply stretch.
You will take home your Mala meditation bracelet to help harness this stillness you will have cultivated in the workshop with Carrie, anytime of day or night, whenever you need it.
