The Well Being Fitness Center

“…(exercise is simply one of the best treatments we have for most psychiatric problems.”
            - John J. Ratey, M.D., Harvard Medical School

 

While clients are receiving counseling they have open-access to our on-site fitness center at no additional charge. We believe in the power that exercise and movement hold as a form of mental health treatment, and have established it as a cornerstone of our practice!

When we opened our doors in June of 2011, The Well Being was the first outpatient mental health facility in the United States to provide its clientele with an on-site fitness center, specifically for their use, and specifically for their mental health.  As of today and to our knowledge, we remain the only place in existence to combine these two elements of treatment. If you know of any other such facility, we’d love to hear about it!

Improve your mental and physical health through YOGA and YOGA THERAPY.  

Q:  How is Yoga Therapy different from "regular" yoga?  

When it comes to understanding the difference between “regular” yoga and yoga therapy, first it is important to recognize yoga is inherently therapeutic as a practice. However, “regular” yoga is typically performed in a class or community setting with a more general focus and sequence to guide a group of people. Yoga therapy extends much further to the unique needs of individuals in a small group setting or one-on-one. This includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle management, and the specific application of yoga tools – adaptive postures, breathwork, meditation techniques, and more – to address an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional needs in the context of a client-centered therapeutic relationship. The International Institute of Yoga Therapy states, “yoga therapy can help people who can’t move at all, as well as active individuals!” Yoga therapy is an option for all. 


Benefits of yoga therapy may include: 

Strengthened resilience

Reduced pain

Improved immune function

Nervous system regulation

Improved self-awareness

Experiential learning

Sense of peace and calm

Improved relationship with self and others

Increased focus, concentration, and clarity

 

*Yoga therapy is not a substitute for allopathic attention, examination, diagnosis, or treatment.
