Led by Dr. Nathalie Edmond, the division will focus on three key components to support the wellbeing and recovery of all individuals using the various aspects of the physical practice of yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and psychology to live a life with ease, compassion, and strength. The program will offer specialized workshops, individual consultations, and small group classes to help individuals build skills and enhance wellbeing.
Edmond is a licensed clinical psychologist with over 12 years of experience providing individual and group therapy and workshops. She is the former director of a women’s trauma program, and she has overseen mental health and addiction programs for patients of all ages.
She is trained in mindfulness and meditation and has a daily personal practice. She believes in mindful living and creating space for people to connect with their true selves, whether that is on or off the mat. She has been intensively trained in a number of therapies and techniques.
Through the wellbeing pillar, participants learn by promoting mindful living, cultivating compassion and gratitude, learning to live more in the moment, embracing a wider range of emotions and experiences, learning radical acceptance, improving confidence, and enhancing relationships.
Individuals that are working on recovery from a wide variety of concerns will be able to learn mind-body techniques to cope with and overcome their issues through a physical practice, meditation, breathwork, mindfulness-based cognitive behavior therapy approaches and more.
For those who have experienced various types of trauma, the program will provide a necessary opportunity to further support their healing process.
