Self-study or Svadyaya in Sanskrit is not being selfish but is a way of awakening to self and becoming more connected. It requires a deep and intense inner listening. This is yoga. One of my teachers shared in sangha (Sanskrit word for community) last week that our task is to awaken in this life. I put this up on my kitchen blackboard as a reminder. Are you awake?
One door closes and another opens… quickly in this case.
This month I bid farewell to the Helix Healthcare Group. Tomorrow (Wednesday) I see my first clients at the new Healing Therapy Alliance. I feel fortunate to be working with this amazing collective of healers. This is my friend Phillip Jacobs, traditional Chinese medicine acupuncturist and powerful sound healer who joins me at the HTA. This past Sunday we set up our therapy room and blessed and prepared the space for our clients.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM AT THE HEALING THERAPY ALLIANCE ON WEDNESDAYS ONLY.
What is the Healing Therapy Alliance?
We are a collective of mind/body, integrative Psychotherapists, Wellness Therapists, and Addictions Counselors valuing a collaborative approach to healing. As a network of practitioners working under one roof, we are able tooffer individualized and coordinated approaches to healing for youth, adults, and families dealing with trauma, mental illness, stress and addiction. Grounded in neuroscience and evidence informed practices, our approach to healing addresses the whole person.
I will be offering private yoga, meditation, breath work, mindfulness and somatic exploration on Wednesdays only at the HTA. This kind of exploration can be an excellent adjunct to talk therapy or can stand on its own. We are located at 55 Eglinton Ave East, Suite 507, Toronto, Ontario, M4P 1G8. We are on the south side of Eglington, a short walk from Eglinton Subway station.
New: To see me on Wednesdays at the HTA, you can book online by accessing my website www.lisamitchellyoga.ca. I am taking appointments for Wednesday, February 7 and all subsequent Wednesdays.
Please note this is for my Wednesday appointments only.
I am journeying to South India for self study, yoga and cultural exploration. I return on February 26th and will happily see clients that Wednesday, February 28th.
