Do you find yourself chronically stressed?
Overwhelmed?
Exhausted?
Wound Up?
Too busy?
Too many balls in the air?
Always running, never able to slow down?
Worried about things outside of your control?
Do people often tell you to "calm down"?

Tension



Are you one of 40 millions Americans suffering from anxiety?

Do you experience any of the following symptoms:
Restlessness?
Fatigue?
Difficulty concentrating?
Irritability?
Muscle tension?
Difficulty Sleeping?

YES...THIS IS ME!  HELP!

"For a person that is always on the go and competitive, this course was great as a reminder of self love...to take time to step back and breathe.  Yoga for anxiety helped me to be intentional regarding self-awareness of my mind and body, and to be more at peace with anxiety in order to reduce that sensation."  ~  previous participant

ChaosNerves

Anxiety and chronic stress are exhausting and very hard on the nervous system.
When the stress response continuously stays activated, cortisol (a stress hormone) stays in our body, making even more difficult to relax.
Not only that, but constant, high levels of cortisol are toxic to the body! 
These days, it is a commonly known fact that chronic stress is related to many diseases and illnesses.

YUCK!  Who wants that? (hint - not me!)

So, a fun fact about me - I L.O.V.E. to learn!  And when I learned about how
this slow, mindful form of yoga can be a HUGE part of the solution to chronic stress and anxiety
I had to learn more.

One continuing education class led to another, and another, and another.
Then in 2013, I spent months becoming a 200 hour trained yoga teacher.
In 2019, I spent ten more months becoming trained at the 500 hour level as a yoga teacher.

Brain

Using this form of slow, breath-based yoga to re-balance the nervous system can prove to be very beneficial.
Slow, mindful movement is a wonderful way to re-train and re-balance the nervous system.
Just imagine the networks in your brain learning to practice relaxing and slowly letting go of chronic nervous system stress!
The time that you spend practicing this type of movement can be just as important as the time you might spend at the gym.
It's like exercise for your nervous system.  We like to call it "Innercise"!

"I enjoyed every session and realized benefits each week.  It enabled me to become much more aware and mindful of my anxiety as it occurred throughout the week, and I was able to utilize skills learned to 'calm' myself.  I also loved the small size of the class and felt very comfortable."
~ previous participant 

Group


So, this yoga workshop is a little different - maybe a lot different -
because in addition to being a yoga teacher,
I'm also a Licensed Professional Counselor.
And this yoga workshop has a different purpose than your typical yoga class.

Perhaps you have tried counseling, and maybe talking just doesn't seem to be enough.
Practicing this slow form of yoga can be an effective adjunct to counseling!

Even if you've never tried counseling, perhaps this type of yoga is worth exploring
to calm your own nervous system.
Try it for six weeks and find out if this is for you!



"Jennifer has a very calming approach.  She can bring you into a peaceful state quickly."  ~ previous participant

Although you will get in some nice movement, this is not an exercise class!

This class is NOT:
Hot
Sweaty
Fast-paced



"I enjoyed the yoga movements and learning how each pose helps with something in life.  The class brought some calmness to my week."
~  previous participant

YogaClassYoga is sometimes stereotypically associated with people who are:
Young 
Fit
Thin
Flexible

This class is for:
All Body Types & Sizes
Ages 16 to 116
All Levels of Fitness and Flexibility


Some would say that this yoga class if "too easy".  And from an outsider's point of view, it might look easy.
So I challenge you to try it with me and tell me what YOU think.
How easy is it to slow down, practice patience, and put in the work it will take to re-wire your brain and re-train your nervous system?
That part takes: Work. Consistency. Practice. Time.
Do YOU have what it takes?

I'M READY FOR A CHALLENGE. SIGN ME UP!

Time

We live in a "microwave" society - busy and wanting a quick fix. (Naturally - who wouldn't want a quick fix?)
Sometimes medication can offer a quick fix; if that is something you are interested in,
that is a discussion for your primary care physician or a psychiatrist.
In order to make permanent changes, however, we have to devote the time to practice consistently.
Our bodies are more like a slow-cooker than a microwave!
We need to give our bodies the time and attention then need in order to get good, long-lasting results.

"I loved the breathing exercises and meditation.  I am already sleeping better.  I am noticing my breath more.  My anxiety is better controlled and rarely spins out of control lately.  Focusing on my breath has really helped."   ~ previous participant

Time Out


If you are looking for a quick fix, this workshop is not for you.

So, this workshop is not for everyone.  How do you know if it's right for you?





This workshop is a good fit for you if you are dedicated to decrease your chronic stress and/or anxiety,
and to put in the work it will take to re-balance your nervous system.
This workshop is for you if you are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.
The reason we ask for a six week commitment is to give you the time it will take to notice a difference.
You will also need to put in the work between sessions.
In addition to the weekly yoga sessions, we also ask for a commitment to practice 15-30 minutes daily outside of class.

"I hope I can remain motivated to continue the movement and meditation practices without the scheduled class.  I will certainly try as I have witnessed the benefits."   ~ previous participant

Stress to Relax

How else is this workshop different than a regular yoga class?

This is not your typical yoga class!

This is a yoga counseling group.
Although the classes are 1 hour and 15 minutes long, 
we will not be doing an hour and 15 minutes of yoga.
In each class, we will spend time doing:
movement
education
check-in
trouble-shooting your personal practice
journaling

"I enjoyed it and learned new things every week."  ~ previous participant

"I looked forward to our time together each week as it was the highlight of my day...I really enjoyed the 'interoceptive' pauses."
