Yoga Therapy Classes

For Kids, Teens, and Adults w/ Jessi Farley, LPC, E-RYT200

Evolution counseling & yoga

A growing body of research supports the therapeutic benefits of yoga. This 5-week yoga therapy class empowers students by developing their strength and skills to deal with issues such as Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Eating Disorders, Life Events and PTSD.   Students have an opportunity to learn and practice the following skills:
  • Mindfulness
  • Regulating Emotions
  • Tolerating Discomfort With Acceptance
  • Connecting With Ourselves
  • Connecting With Others
Connecting with others in the safe environment of therapeutic yoga, we can explore our breath, slow down, and listen to what we need. When we listen to ourselves, honor ourselves, connect with ourselves in a gentle way, we can begin to trust our body and mind – the foundation of the healing process. With a therapeutic approach, the practice of yoga can help us experience qualities and a strength that we may not previously have been in touch with. 

Benefits include increases in: 
  • Focus
  • Awareness
  • Intentionality
  • Personal Responsibility
  • Patience
