About Embodied Youth Training
Do you want to live your life more fully? Feeling stressed, unfocused, disconnected, or can't sleep? Not doing the things you used to enjoy? Or maybe you're worried about a family member. Perhaps you've tried traditional methods. But now you want an alternative therapy.
You’ve come to the right place. Embodied Youth Training offers therapists and clinics yoga-based therapy tools that you can not only use with your patients, but that you can use for yourself to feel like yourself again. Maybe even better than you imagined.
What makes our yoga therapy different?
Embodied Youth Training specializes in yoga therapy for emotional wellness. We combine evidence-based treatments with yoga techniques.
What's the difference between yoga therapy and a yoga class? We tailor our yoga practices to children's different needs and ability levels. Not all yoga and mindfulness techniques are right for everyone. For kids who struggle with anxiety or hyperactivity, you learn active poses to release that extra energy. For kids who are feeling depressed, you learn gentle poses that help them build stamina and resiliency. We combine our clinical mental health experience and yoga in order to train therapists to utilize mindfulness techniques that meet the specific needs of each patient.
