Living with Anxiety
Body-Psychotherapy Process Group


One of the main ways to alleviate anxiety is by increasing body-awareness and strengthening the mind-body connection. For this, we will practice Bioenergetic exercises and other techniques to deepen our breathing and strengthen our grounding.

This group is for people who want a safe, judgment-free space to share and experience themselves, to better understand their anxiety, and to explore ways to deal with it as part of their process of self-discovery and self-development.

Participants Sharing

"I enjoyed learning some of the basic exercises and noticing how they affected me during & after. They will be useful tools going forward. The times when Yaniv spent time counselling us as individuals was very powerful, it was tremendously helpful.

"It was wonderful to connect with such a disparate group of strangers from around the world. I was very moved by our relatedness and openness. The in-depth individual processes were the most powerful part of the group for me. I feel like I got as much healing out of other's work as my own. Thank you for everything!"

I really loved being in this group. I think Yaniv is an excellent facilitator. He really knows how to make room for all that we need to share and process, and his guidance is always right on. The group made me feel much less alone in what I'm dealing with. My session was really profound. Very grateful.
