Yoga & Workshops

The Move Therapy and Wellness yoga studio offers yoga classes, workshops and therapeutic groups led by Certified Yoga Teachers and Licensed Clinical Psychotherapists. 

Through movement, breath work, and meditation, each class offers practical self-care and mental health tools that you can take off your mat and into your daily life. Our space and our classes are designed to support Move's existing therapy clients and the general population through drop in yoga classes and speciality workshops. No yoga experience is necessary, and classes prioritize inner work and self-compassion over difficult poses and advanced sequences.

This workshop is suitable for any person who has experiences with trauma and/or chronic stress that impacts their ability to engage with pleasure, sexual or otherwise. Additionally, we will explore body-based tools for grounding and empowerment, and resources for continued education and exploration.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m new to yoga – can I still attend class?

Yes, all levels are welcome – including those brand-new to yoga. Our practitioners create a safe, welcoming environment with a yoga flow that’s accessible to all. We encourage you to listen to your body throughout class and honor what you need in the moment – even if that means doing child’s pose the whole time.

Will we be doing therapy during yoga?

No. While many of our yoga classes are taught by our therapists, you will not be expected to participate in a therapy session during class.

You’re welcome in our studio regardless of whether or not you’re currently doing psychotherapy – but we think our classes will enhance any mental health practice you’re currently doing.
