Service Description

Casey has practiced yoga on and off for over 15 years. However, it wasn’t until she went through a traumatic experience and was diagnosed with PTSD that drove her to consistent yoga practice. The personal healing, that she experienced through Yoga, inspired her to obtain the knowledge and certification to be a Yoga Instructor. Yoga classes can be intimidating and overwhelming, even in a beginner level class. Casey’s goal is to teach the foundations and mindsets of Yoga to enable her client’s comfort and confidence. Yoga and Positive Psychology: The link between yoga and positive psychology is strong. Wellbeing is a core focus in positive psychology, which explains the frequent use of yoga in intervention and exercises. Yoga offers an opportunity to enter flow, the state of being fully engaged and present in the moment with no attention paid to the time passing. Practicing yoga can help people cultivate mindfulness, develop greater awareness, and improve your ability to focus on the hear and now. The overall consensus is that yoga has many positive effects on mental health that go beyond the effects of other low- to-medium-impact physical activity and these effects are likely due to chemical changes in the brain (Grazioplene, 2012). It turns out that practicing yoga actually facilitates a greater release of gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) from the thalamus; GABA acts as a sort of “grand inhibitor” of the brain, suppressing neural activity. This can mimic the effects of anti-anxiety drugs and alcohol—yep, doing yoga can make you feel like you just had a nice, refreshing cocktail! Who knew euphoria can be achieved naturally?!? The findings indicate that yoga can actually work to help “reset” your brain to a calmer, more collected state, giving you the baseline mood, you need to deal with the stress you encounter every day (Grazioplene, 2012). Unlike when you go for a run or lift weights, yoga is only in “full effect” when both mind and body are completely engaged. This marriage of your mental state and your physical state offers a unique opportunity to make a powerful impact on your mental health. How strong is the potential impact of a “yoga treatment?” So strong that some therapists and doctors have begun to prescribe it as a complementary treatment on top of medication, talk therapy, or both; sometimes, it is even pursued as the only method of treatment, although that is generally not advised for more severe diagnoses.
