About the Event
8 Week Yoga Therapy Group
Hosted by Noel L. Poff
at The Healing Gallery
What is this group?: This is an 8-week focus group intended to gather participants for yoga combined with meditation, journaling, discussion, and personal transformation. Cultivating awareness is one of the first steps we must take in order to control the flow of our lives. This is best done through tapping into the present centered awareness of the body itself. In yoga therapy the body is used as a medium for gaining personal insight into the sources of our limitations, whether they be mental or physical. This program offers participants an opportunity to promote awareness through the body by way of yoga within the healing container of a fully present and supportive group.
