About the clinic:
This clinic is designed for people that suffer from anxiety; GAD, Panic Disorder, PTSD. Even though it is taught in a group setting, this is a very private and personal experience. The lights will be low, presentations are given with visual aids (power point presentation, handouts, etc), and all activities are private; No group work or activities and you will never be asked to speak publicly. The utmost care and attention is given to accomodate 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 you feel that you would like the support. Please call if you would like to discuss the setting more: 512-415-4966.

Explore self-healing modalities that are effective and profoundly liberating when combating the debilitating effects of anxiety. Learn breathwork, meditation and gentle movement techniques that help to break the psychological, biochemical, and physical cycles that keep anxiety in your life. A presentation of what happens in your mind and body while experiencing anxiety, and tools to "turn off" the fight or flight response, and "turn on" the relaxation response will be taught in the first class. We offer Acupuncture (optional) during extended a guided meditation called Yoga Nidra in all sessions. A take-home program with daily exercises and lifestyle suggestions will be handed out as well as a Yoga Nidra cd to practice in the comfort of your own home. The combination of the methods that we explore are very powerful. Yoga Therapy is a blend of traditional Yoga practices, Ayurveda, Alternative Medicine, and modern medical science. We will also explore nutrition, herbal remedies, aromatherapy, acupressure, sound healing and movement. The more you know about anxiety and how to fight it, the easier your journey. Not all methods work for everyone, but there is one or more methods that will work for all. If you have any questions, please call: (512) 415-4966

Testimonials

"I have spent tens of thousands of dollars on medications, talk therapy, hospital stays and self-help books over the past decade and nothing has helped me get to the core of my chronic anxiety as your program has. I am with tears in my eyes as I write this-I know that I will be anxiety-free some day in the near future. I haven't had a panic attack in 4 months, and I don't fear having one at all-I know "I control my inner peace"-your favorite line-haha. My quality of life has improved immensely in this past 5 months since I met you and started your program. . I can't thank you enough for your honesty, genuine concern, and desire to help all of us that suffered like you did. I am going to follow in your footsteps and help others. Your story and your selflessness is so inspirational to me. Thanks so much for helping me help myself!"
- Program graduate

"Thank you again for such an amazing course. I learned SO MUCH and have really begun to improve, mentally and emotionally, as I've begun incorporating these techniques into my "normal" existence. I definitely want to return for future sessions!
- Program graduate

"I can't believe the difference I feel by just adding such simple things to my everyday life (and getting rid of old habits too). My family has noticed the difference and I've started teaching them some of the things I learned. I am so glad that I found this clinic-I felt like I was going down a one-way street the wrong way and didn't know how to exit. As much as I hate that you had such a hard time with your anxiety, I am so grateful that you have dedicated your life to helping others get rid of their anxiety. I will always consider it a blessing that you have come into my life. Thank you for caring so much."
- Program graduate

"I feel like I removed a heavy weight from my chest - thank you so much for helping me find my way out!"
- Program graduate

"The Overcoming Anxiety clinic provided new insights for me. Each time I came away feeling both energized and relaxed. Just learning about breathing techniques and mudras (that can be used under all kinds of stressful situations) and calming essential oils was worth my time."
- Program graduate

"I enjoyed the Anxiety series so much.  I use the breathing techniques the most, and the stuff about self talk or changing the paths in your brain. I thought the information about anxiety that Genevieve spoke about was so interesting and fun to listen to. Loved the stories and examples.  Good to feel like you are not alone in feeling so anxious!"
- Program graduate

"... I really appreciated your non-judgemental, caring, respectful, and devoted approach to teaching."
- Program graduate

"I wasn't practicing at home much at first, but still felt a sense of relief from the stuff I learned in the lectures starting the first day-I really do control my inner peace :) I finally started practicing everyday just as I was instructed (Okay, two weeks late), and gradually I am finding myself more in control everday, and a lot less preoccupied by worries that used to keep me up at night-I can now turn that terrifying machine in my head off-I used to only focus on bad thoughts, but now I live with a lot less negativity. This is just two weeks out of the program..."
-Program graduate

"I can't say enough good things about this program. All of the instructors gave such helpful information. I look forward to doing my meditation and breath exercises everyday, and I feel a big difference in the way I respond to things that used to send me into a downward spiral. I get refreshers in Genevieve's Restorative class weekly which is so helpful to me-I know that these methods will be a part of my life for the rest of my life."
-Program graduate
