Therapeutic Art & Yoga Groups Overview
Intuition Wellness offers an array of Therapeutic Art & Yoga groups for children, young adults and parents. Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word that mean “to join.” Yoga, then is considered a method to unite the body, mind, and spirit. Intuition Wellness Therapeutic Art & Yoga groups are not just an extracurricular activity but are designed to address specific mental health challenges.
Therapeutic Art & Yoga groups include between 6-10 group sessions depending on the mental health challenge that is the focus of each group.
Therapeutic Art & Yoga is also offered as an alternative therapy to individual counseling. This may be done in conjunction with other therapeutic approaches or as a stand alone approach that weaves the healing benefits of yoga with traditional counseling.
What sets Intuition Wellness Therapeutic Art & Yoga groups apart from traditional yoga classes or even yoga therapy? These groups are designed to support recovery from specific mental health and behavioral challenges and are lead by a clinical social worker who is also trained as a yoga therapist. Mental health challenges may include PTSD, anxiety disorders, attentional difficulties, or depression. Intuition Wellness Therapeutic Art & Yoga groups include the ancient healing tradition of yoga, as well as a therapeutic group process. After a comprehensive clinical assessment, a treatment plan identifying a specific set of goals is developed in conjunction with each participant. Groups may also include art activities designed to support the individual to explore their thoughts and emotions through imagery. Each group connects the mind with the body and is designed to support both the physiological and psychological components of specific mental health challenges.
