We are pleased to offer additional specialty therapy support groups to enhance your experience of participating in our eating disorders programs.
Journaling & Self-Awareness Therapy Group
Finding time for reflection is becoming increasingly difficult in the hectic, pressure-filled world we live in. We are encouraged to practice self-expression only as it relates to doing more, not being more. In this group, you will be provided with the space, the materials, and the facilitated guidance to really hear what is unfolding within you through your feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and life experiences. You will also create a personal time/lifeline that will help you integrate your past with your present in a way that will allow you to move closer to finding and fulfilling your dreams for the future.
Equine Assisted Therapy Group
When you think of working with horses, most likely you assume you will be riding them. But with this unique and powerful therapy approach, the horse becomes your greatest teacher. Conducted in a group setting, the group leader facilitates educational interaction between the horse and each group member. Through each of these encounters, you will begin to recognize unhealthy patterns that are no longer working for you and may even be holding you back from building the relationships you seek with yourself and others. You will become more aware of your emotional state, and more easily able to regulate your emotions to produce more of what brings joy and less of what doesn’t. Most importantly, with the horse as your guide, you will emerge from your participation in this group to discover a newfound self-esteem and self-respect unfolding within you.
Yoga for Recovery
Yoga, a word which means “union” in Sanskrit, is an ancient, comprehensive mind-body system for facilitating physical health, emotional balance and spiritual growth. Practicing yoga has been proven beneficial in recovery from eating disorders, addictions, and other disorders such as anxiety and depression. To integrate the mind and body, yoga incorporates breathing techniques, healing movement, meditation and cognitive practices. Participants in Yoga for Recovery will learn how to implement a range of basic yoga techniques such as breath and body awareness, breathing to facilitate relaxation or increase energy, gentle stretching for greater flexibility, and poses to increase balance.
The Yoga for Recovery facilitator guides participants through a series of poses and meditations designed to bring awareness, acceptance and balance into their yoga practice, thus translating these into their everyday lives. Yoga for Recovery is a practice which can be utilized by individuals of any physical ability and fosters spiritual development in the context of any belief system.
