WHAT MAKES OUR CENTER UNIQUE?
Established as a non-profit organization 28 years ago, Mental Wellness Therapeutics, Inc/Yoga Health & Therapy Center has been serving the community continuously since that time, promoting health and well-being for students through our classes and for the public through lectures and educational programs. Our programs are available in Georgia (Athens), Kentucky (Lexington, and Paris), and Texas. A partial list of agencies we have worked with appears below.*
Because we limit class size, students receive the necessary individualized attention, and we can provide a quiet, supportive atmosphere conducive to letting go of daily stress. Students tell us they feel the calm from the moment they walk in the door.
After years of study, practice and reflection, our Founder, Shelley Smith, was asked by her teacher to establish a school in America, to share the ancient tradition of Yoga health and its underlying philosophy in a way that is meaningful and effective for people today. Shelley has trained all of our instructors, who have experienced the benefits of Yoga and Meditation and are inspired to share what they have learned with others.
This program features private instruction in Yoga techniques on horseback to enhance the relationship of rider and horse. The practice of Equine Yoga leads to improved flexibility, postural alignment, and breathing for riding comfort. Participants build a relaxed, confident attitude for the riding experience and for daily life.
In addition to instruction in Yoga and Meditation, we also offer special programs which integrate Yoga principles to help participants play a more active role in building their own health and well-being. These programs include Clinical Counseling, Dream Work, Stress Reduction Classes, and Yoga Therapy Sessions.
