Yoga

The Mindfulness Yoga practiced at the Center, trauma-management yoga, is modeled on the yoga practiced at the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts, where Dr. Casellas trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. It includes postures and movements that "train the mind and change the brain for the better."

During the practice, the student is encouraged to keep the mind centered in the present moment by focusing on the breath, the somatic, kinesthetic and visceral sensations in the body, a well as keeping the mind anchored in the present moment.  As such the practice enhances information processing, emotion control, and increases attentiveness. Yoga sessions are offered at the Center in Rancho Mirage throughout the week. Click here for our schedule.

“Yoga, an ancient but perfect science, deals with the evolution of humanity. This evolution includes all aspects of one’s being, from bodily health to self-realization.” — B.K.S. Iyengar
