Led by Highly Trained Professionals, these small group classes utilize the commonalityand support of the group to help individuals achieve their goals.

What is
Functional Group Therapy?

We have crafted a variety of Functional Groups Classes to address the needs of individuals who have specific health issues in common. These 8-week courses meet weekly for 75 minute therapeutic classes and include a group check-in. Many students who attend just a weekly class have reported marked improvement in their symptoms! This can also be a great way to check out how yoga therapy differs from regular fitness-type yoga classes.

How it Works

A certified yoga therapist will incorporate the tools of yoga: asana, pranayama, meditation, sound and self-inquiry in a class-series format. Descriptions of the Functional Group classes will indicate the specific ability level required, though nearly all classes can be adapted for the individual.

Check out these great classes and let us know if there is a specific course you would like to see offered!

*All classes are currently being taught virtually.

Yoga Therapy for Stress Mangement

Using Yoga’s Tools for Grounding and Connecting:

When we are stressed, it is common to feel like we are lacking the ability to mange our responsibilities or don’t feel supported in our lives. Grounding the system can reduce feelings of anxiety. Likewise, connecting with others, (as well as with other parts of self), can reduce feelings of depression.
