Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) was originally designed for people with Borderline Personality Disorder, but has been found to be effective for other conditions, such as self-destructive behaviors (self-harm, suicidal ideology, eating disorders, substance abuse, etc.…), anxiety, major depression, PTSD related with childhood sexual abuse, Bipolar disorder, ADHD, and other cluster B personality disorders.
In DBT therapy, the client and therapist work on bringing together self-acceptance, and the work needed to change negative behaviors in order to bring about positive changes. During the group session, clients are taught skills that will help them effectively change their negative behaviors to positive behaviors using four main strategies:
Mindfulness - clients are taught skills that will help them to focus on the present
Distress Tolerance – clients are taught skills on how to tolerate and survive their current situations
Interpersonal Effectiveness - clients are taught skills that will help them build and keep health and positive relationships.
Emotion Regulation – clients are taught skills to help them recognize and cope with negative emotions

Learn the fundamentals postures that are crucial for building a long healthy practice. We focus mainly on Asana (Posture) with a little bit of Pranayama (Breath Awareness) to work our way to meditation. Think of this class as a staircase to help build a safe practice that can go on all of your life.
Mindfulness Movement: Wednesdays 6:30-7:30 pm
In this class we take traditional poses a bit further by adding our own expressions and variations. Allowing for deeper space to be created in the physical body for the mind-body connection to grow stronger and more intelligent. We coordinate breath with movement and expand awareness beyond posture into more subtle regions of the body. Think of this class as more of a meditation class, where we focus on more subtle energy within and around the physical body.
