Yoga Therapy Workshop
w/ Jess Maitri LCSW, Certified Yoga Therapist, RYT-500
November 15 and December 6, 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!

December 5, 7:15-8:45 PM and January 7th 7:00-8:30 PM
Yoga means a unity/oneness and Nidra means sleep. Combined this practice is a meditation to access your wholeness across all states of consciousness.
This is an extended-healing, systematic technique which will bring you to both a state of relaxation and acute awareness while resting comfortably in Shavasana! (our favorite yoga pose!)
iRest, Yoga Nidra is the art of balancing your awareness of the physical body and the subtle body. Exploring inner spaces of being through the use of body scanning, breath awareness and guided imagery.
All of which takes you through the Panchamaya Kosha (five layers of self), calming the nervous system to alleviate stress and anxiousness.
We will explore some creative processes during this 90-minute session. Quieting the overactive mind and moving toward a meditative state. Ultimately reaching a sense of joy and well-being.
