Contract services are provided in each of the following areas
Yoga instruction in schools: Yoga can be taught as an enrichment activity, as a physical education unit, as an alternative to recess and as therapeutic sessions with children needing tools for self-regulation or behavioral issues
Yoga therapy in clinical settings: Yoga can add the mind/body/spirit connection that is missing from standard medical treatment. These sessions focus on abilities, rather than our disabilities, and assist students in discovering their full potential in thought, actions and movement. Specific experience includes cancer patients, chronic pain management, substance use treatment, mental health, sensory processing disorder and ADD/ADHD. Therapists wanting to incorporate yoga and mindfulness techniques into their sessions are also encouraged to attend with patients.
Educate the Educator: Educators worldwide are incorporating short yoga breaks into their school days to release energy, relieve the kinks of extended sitting periods, focus the mind and relieve tension. These breaks do not require reorganization of the classroom, extensive training or any equipment. Training is conducted in small groups or large for all grade levels.
Yoga as a community activity: Yoga offered in libraries, community centers, churches and other public spaces brings new visitors and interest to your location. These classes can be taught indoors or out and for all ages.
Mary Lasky has extensive experience in each of these areas and welcomes your inquiry. Contracted work includes many metro schools, libraries and community centers, Mercy Medical Center, First Step Substance Use Recovery, National Alliance for Mental Illness, United Way, Child and Family Policy Center, Iowa Department of Corrections, and Child and Family Urban Movement.
