Focus Group Programs 

Focus groups are small group Yin Yoga Therapy Sessions that are limited to 6 students per group. Keeping group sizes small helps to foster a more intimate and supportive environment for participants to feel safe and encouraged as they seek to grow and heal together.  Groups typically meet once a week and run 8 weeks long. While the themes of the groups vary, all sessions cultivate space for somatic (physical) release of emotions, increased mindfulness, and nervous system regulation techniques. Focus groups are held at 1225 Volunteer Parkway, Bristol, TN (in the front studio room at Appalachian Bouldering Center).
