    LifeForce® Yoga, A Tool for Managing Mood and Building Resilience

    There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen! — Rumi

    Lifeforce Yoga can provide a dynamic complement to both traditional talk therapy and more body-centered therapies such as EMDR. The practices focus on balancing the emotional systems of the body through the therapeutic use of yoga, including gentle movement, attention to breath, and the use of sound and imagery. 

    Learning and practicing skills to calm or to energize can assist in managing stressful moods and triggers between sessions. The ability to self-regulate outside of and between sessions allows a more pro-active response to life’s stressors, which can increase one’s feelings of self-reliance and competency.  LifeForce Yoga can deepen your true connection to yourself and those around you, allowing you to live more fully.

    These strategies and skills are supported by current research and scientific findings in psycho-neurobiology. In working together, we may determine that developing skills tailored to your specific needs to be of benefit in building self-reliance and addressing and shifting mood between sessions. 

    LifeForce Yoga is offered in both individual and group settings. Group experiences are presently offered through telehealth.
