GROUP THERAPY AND YOGA CLASSES
Elevation Counseling is thrilled to announce that Robin Bartee, LCSW is now offering yoga classes and Mindfulness-Based group therapy on Saturdays in Elevation Counseling’s office.
TRAUMA-INFORMED YOGA CLASS
Saturday 9:00am – 10:15am
Self-pay $20 per class
**Instruction will focus on how we can use the body and breath to recalibrate our stress response, become aware of the body in a safe way, and begin a conversation with (not avoid or command) the body. Applications on and off the mat will be discussed.
**Classes will also employ various tools of mindfulness and yoga practice to address specific client challenges such as depression, anxiety, stress, grief, chronic pain, trauma, and mental illness.
Client size limit: up to 5 students
Additional classes will be added in August.
Women-only Therapeutic Yoga
When: Wednesdays 5:30-6:45pm (starting August 28th)
Where: Elevation Counseling Yoga Room, check-in at the front desk
Who: This class is for all women ages 12 and up. All sizes, shapes, and orientations of cis and transgender women will be welcomed and celebrated.
Students with physical differences and chronic conditions are welcome. However, students should be able to lie down on the floor and get back up again without assistance.
What: Therapeutic Yoga addresses the specific needs of the students present for each practice using poses, breath work, meditation, and deep relaxation. Students may have emotional, mental, or physical needs that they’d like help with, such as anxiety, back pain, hormonal concerns, mood swings, sleep problems, trauma, or depression. Classes are small, so that each student can receive the attention she needs. Classes are $20 each.
Why: A women-only yoga class allows for a safe place to nourish and respect our ever-changing bodies and inner experiences in a way that invites openness, community, and acceptance.
How: Pre-register for the class by calling 505-888-1686, filling out the Pre-Registration Form, or dropping by the Elevation Counseling front desk and asking to register for the Women-only Yoga Class. You may sign up for several weeks at a time, if you like. Drop-ins are welcome, if there is room in the class, but only pre-registration will guarantee your spot.
MINDFULNESS-BASED THERAPY GROUP
Insurance accepted, or self-pay available ($30.00 per session).
Clients will need to meet with Robin Bartee for an initial therapy intake prior to first class, and will need to preregister for the group.
**Mindfulness based therapy groups use interventions from MBCT, MBSR, DBT, and Somatic Processing, including body awareness, breath work, and meditation.
**Research has shown that mindfulness practices can reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, regulate emotions, and reduce chronic pain.
Group size: 3 minimum to 6 maximum
Additional groups will open in August.
