Psychotherapy and Yoga
I really believe the group you have created is something special. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to participate. I use the philosophies on a daily basis and in fact I had a minor panic attack today and I played your voice over a million times over “it’s ok to feel this way, acknowledge and move on”. I hope the group continues and so many others have the opportunity to practice self-care in this way!
I’ve struggled with Generalized Anxiety Disorder my whole life, but it was at an all-time high when I developed adult asthma and allergies a few years ago. My therapist recommended that I try breathing exercises on a regular basis, but it wasn’t enough to do them on my own so I started taking beginner yoga with Beth. I’ve learned the basics, and have been taking yoga weekly ever since. My asthma symptoms and anxiety have subsided to almost non-existent. I’ve also noticed a positive change with my focus and concentration, as well as endurance.
Yoga therapy with you has been one of the best practices in self-care that I’ve ever committed to. The group is gentle and focused. I use the yoga philosophies in my daily life and have stated integrating yoga into my home self-care routine. I so wish I could continue with this group...
Before attending the group I did not have a regular yoga practice; however, since the group I have been doing yoga 4-5x per week...I found it to be a good small size and Beth worked really hard to make sure we felt safe and to do whatever she could to address our needs. Yoga has been more beneficial to me than individual therapy, DBT, or anything else I have tried. I haven’t experienced dissociation in over a month. Yoga has saved my life.
My experience in Beth’s yoga therapy group was exceedingly positive. Beth is a gifted teacher who encourages self-compassion on and off of the yoga mat. Nothing else has been so effective for my anxiety and depression as cultivating a yoga practice. I highly recommend Beth’s classes because she is specially trained in yoga therapy and her group class model is unique in that it incorporates check-in times and opportunities to share.
Beth is a compassionate, intelligent, creative counselor, yoga therapist and human being.
