Semi-private Group Sessions

While most of us are familiar with the physical benefits of a yoga practice, the therapeutic benefits go much deeper. These benefits are available to everyone with the right application based on the individual’s needs. When yoga is applied specifically, based on these individual needs, the full benefits of the practice can be accessed.

The western model of yoga tends to focus on large group classes without much individual access to the instructor. This can feel both limiting and intimidating for those with specific therapeutic goals. Semi-private group classes at Summit Natural Wellness recognize the value and the need for personalized practices to achieve therapeutic goals. Summit Natural Wellness Center offers weekly semi-private series that allow for a more personalized application of yoga.

All classes are 60 minutes and pre-registration is required.

Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy sessions provide a personalized yoga practice for those with specific therapeutic goals. An assessment is completed and instruction on custom poses and breath work is given. A written, take-home practice is included.  The client will receive detailed instruction for their home practice and follow-up is typically recommended. Yoga therapy is best done in stages.

Follow-up yoga therapy sessions take the clients practice to the next stage to accomplish their goals. Additional questions are answered, new considerations included, new breath work given and when applicable, the next level of difficulty added.

Clients should wear comfortable clothing in which they have full range of motion. If clients have props and an exercise or yoga mat of their own, they are encouraged to bring them.

Pricing: $75 per session, or six sessions for $396 (Yoga Therapy, TRE, and Coaching are interchangeable with package rate)

Tension and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE®)

Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (or TRE®) is a simple series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. TRE is a body based (somatic) process which does not require “revisiting the story”. (ie: verbally describing or talking about the traumatic experience)

Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance. TRE is designed to be a self-help tool that once learned, can be used as needed, throughout one’s life, thereby continuously supporting and promoting personal health and wholeness.

Health Coaching

Lasting change takes mindset work. The same old patterns can keep us stuck even when we know we want to change. If you feel like change is too difficult, coaching might be the best option to help you reach your goals. Coaching can help distinguish between beliefs that are no longer helping you reach your desired outcome and help you generate new systems in order to have a different experience.

In other words, coaching makes change easy. Instead of focusing on the “shoulds” or on behavior modification, coaching helps change the programming that is keeping you stuck. Coaching can help you see new possibilities so you can step into, and maintain your goals with ease.
