Yoga at Empowered and Authentic Living
Our licensed counselors may invite you to learn or participate in our yoga classes, groups, or workshops. If you’re interested, your therapist may also teach you some basic yoga practices during your therapy session.
But what exactly is yoga?
It’s certainly not an exercise fad. Fads come and go.
Instead, yoga is an ancient spiritual practice that is nearly 5,000 years old. Its goal is to create harmony between your mind, body, and spirit.
To that end, it combines different postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and more.
