The Holding Space Technique

 

The Holding Space Technique is a method of teaching that weaves together the healing practice of Yoga with transformational life coaching.

Specifically designed for yoga teachers to hold a healing space for those experiencing a difficult life transition, the technique is hinged on a foundation of mind, body, and spirit, and combines solution-focused mental health principles, mindfulness, and fundamental self-care tools with yoga and meditation to create an accelerated path of growth.

We take a therapeutic approach to our coaching and yoga. 

We have studied the effects of stress and transition on the body and mind, and have seen this method work, first-hand. We have found over and over again that the cognitive, mental health components combined with the practice of yoga and meditation provide compounded effects for grounding the nervous system in order to encourage healing and growth, and has been particularly effective in helping decrease stress, anxiety, and depression for our clients facing difficult life transitions.

We designed this technique for you to share with Social Good in mind.
