"Overcome!" Anxiety Program

Is this clinic for you?

This clinic is designed for those who suffer from anxiety; Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder and PTSD. Led by Certified Yoga Therapist Silvia Voss, LMT, C-IAYT, participants will learn and practice self-healing modalities which are effective in reducing the effects of anxiety while also learning techniques to navigate difficult emotional experiences. Anxiety can have an overriding effect on our systems which can leave us feeling stuck, shut down and emotionally reactive. Learning skills to better cope with anxiety can provide a framework to lean into when symptoms become difficult to manage. You will learn breath work, meditation and gentle movement techniques that help to break the psychological, biochemical and physical cycles that keep anxiety in your life. We will learn what happens in your mind and body while experiencing anxiety, tools to “turn off” the fight or flight response, and how to “turn on” the relaxation response. Participants will learn and practice a variety of methods to “turn on” the relaxation response. By the end of the clinic, the participants will have a large toolbox of methods that are a blend of traditional Yoga practices, Ayurveda, Alternative Medicine, and modern medical science. We will also explore Reiki, nutrition, aromatherapy, acupressure, sound healing and movement. The more you know about anxiety and how to defeat it, the more empowered you become to drive your own self-healing journey. A take-home program with daily exercises and lifestyle suggestions will be handed out, and all participants will be emailed digital recordings of meditations that can be practiced in the comfort of your own home. The format of this clinic will be a hybrid of presentation of information from your manual and experiential practice of the material. Even though it is taught in a group setting, this is a personal experience; there are no group activities and you will never be asked to speak publicly. Presentations are given with visual aids (manual reference, handouts, etc.), and all work is private (you are not asked to turn in suggested journal responses for the self-study work). The utmost care and attention is given to accommodate those that are not comfortable in social situations. We are also open to allowing a spouse, friend, or family member to attend with you, if that support feels right for you. If you have any questions regarding the clinic, or wish to schedule a time to see the studio space/ meet the facilitator before registering for the clinic. Overcome clinic is also available in one on one setting.

A Personal Note:

I encourage you to find your yoga, not mine. Your journey is unique. Yoga brings the wisdom inside of you to the surface. I do not claim to have the medical expertise of an M.D., nor do I have the ability to help you process emotions like a psychotherapist. I take the scope of my practice seriously, and I am humble enough to know that I do not have all the answers. Rather, as a yoga therapist, I do have expertise on the connection between mind, body and spirit, and how yogic tools can help you heal on every level of your being...You have all the tools you need within--you are your own best teacher. There is an awe-inspiring depth and scope of wisdom within a yoga practice that cannot be fully explained by words--it must be experienced. You are inherently whole, and already healed. I’d love to meet you, and be your yoga guide.
