Facilitated by Lisa Mitchell, M.Ed, RYT, Psychotherapist in Training


Yoga is an ancient system promoting healing and wellness of the physical, emotional, and energetic bodies. Yoga is a powerful tool to help integrate the whole self through physical movements, breathing, and mindful attention.

Trauma can occur through events that threaten our life or body. It can also occur through ordinary events that exceed our ability to cope. To heal from trauma, a connection must be made to oneself, including one’s body. Yoga encourages this process. With Lisa’s guidance, you will practice cultivating a more positive relationship with your body through mindfulness, breathing, and gentle postures. No yoga experience is required. Breathing and moving exercises will be gentle and accessible for most people. 

 In classes, you will:

  • Invite mindful curiosity and compassion for your experience

  • Cultivate a more positive relationship with your body

  • Develop a relationship with your breath

  • Practice grounding to build a sense of safety and stability

  • Discover a sense of centre

  • Make choices that serve you

Each class is one hour and there is space for a maximum of five participants. This is a closed group and no new comers will be permitted once the series begins. 

To register, contact Lisa Mitchell by September 16th at lisamitchell@mac.com

Before the group starts, Lisa will set up a short telephone call to discuss participation. Payment of $180 is required by September 18th in order to participate. E-transfer funds to lisamitchell@mac.com. 

Please bring:

  • A yoga mat if you have one, otherwise one will be provided.
