Private Yoga Instruction

Yoga defines anxiety and depression as dukkah, or obstructed space. The practice of yoga allows the practitioner to clear mental and physical obstruction that can contribute to mental illness. It also helps build resilience and facilitates steady growth for optimum mental health and wellbeing in the face of life’s inevitable challenges and losses. Private yoga sessions with a specialized yoga instructor and your therapist offers a supportive space of safety tailored to your needs.

At Integrated Counseling and Wellness, you and your psychotherapist determine if integrating the practice of yoga will benefit your treatment goals. *You have the option to do yoga with your therapist present as a part of your treatment, or schedule with our yoga specialist outside of your regular sessions either live or through a secure online platform.
