At Fine Balance Yoga we teach therapeutic yoga classes and offer individual sessions to trauma survivors struggling with addiction, depression and anxiety, teaching them healthy self-regulation strategies to empower them to live connected and embodied lives. We also  train yoga teachers and clinicians in the trauma-informed yoga theory and techniques required to support trauma survivors in their healing, long-term stability and recovery. 

We wish you a peaceful holiday season, however you're spending these next few days. May there be opportunity for some quiet moments to reflect on the year that’s coming to a close and the sweet potential that lies in the year ahead.

We so appreciate the presence and contributions of all the  amazing folks we’ve had the privilege to meet and work with over the year in Fine Balance classes, trainings and private sessions and look forward to offering more tools to support finding balance in 2014.
