Self-Development Through Movement and Mindfulness


Would you like to step into new ways of meeting challenges in your life, work, and relationships? This interactive coaching group offers tools to reclaim more of yourself through physical practices and mindfulness exercises.

We will start by exploring the ways you naturally meet challenges through an individualized personality assessment that incorporates both the mind and the body. We will experience four different energy patterns and discuss the ways they play out in your life. Then we will explore ways to step into each of the four energy patterns to better leverage your strengths and to flexibly shift energy as needed for a given situation or challenge.

This group will offer physical ways to expand your capability, build empathy, and embody the change you want to be. This group is limited to 4-5 participants to allow for personalized reflection and goal setting.

Please note that this is a self-development group, not a therapy group. The self-awareness and self-regulation tools you will learn may support your therapeutic work, but is not meant to be a replacement for therapy.
