Yoga: Stretching the mind and body
Yoga is an integral part of any mind/body process. As therapy/counseling/coaching encourages us to move into the hard places for insight, yoga helps us soften into those spaces for growth and flexibility. OIC offers a unique yoga experience with Registered Yoga Teachers who are part of our integrative team, bringing integrative healthcare to their classes and individual sessions. Our yoga is both traditional and contemporary, influenced by the fundamental practices of yoga: Asanas (postures), Pranayama (Breathwork), Meditation and Relaxation. Our teachers are embedded in our integrative model which includes acupuncture, nutrition, therapeutic massage and counseling. This allows them to develop holistic classes and interventions to meet your unique needs.
Classes are either drop-in classes or sessions. Sessions are a series of classes that build on a certain theme, giving students an opportunity to focus on a specific goal and go deeper into their practice.
You can view and register for classes on our Classes page.
