YogaHOPE- Trauma Informed Mind Body program (“TIMBo”)

Do you want to live with more awareness?
Do you want to genuinely feel & honor your emotions?
Do you want to be more skillful in expressing your feelings?

Are you too critical of yourself & others?
Are you tired of repeating harmful patterns?
Do you want to create more healing ways to respond to & release stress?
Do you want to treat yourself & others with more kindness & compassion?
Do you want to feel more joy, peace & acceptance in your life?

The yogaHOPE Trauma Informed Mind Body Program (TIMBo) was designed specifically for women and strategically addresses the effects of stress and trauma on the body and the mind. TIMBo will give you tools to allow you to live much more comfortably in your body! To feel your feelings, examine your coping strategies, change the ones that no longer serve you & create other coping strategies that are more life-affirming & not harmful. The sessions are one hour a week for eight weeks & include discussions on topics such as perspective, fear, creativity, guilt, confidence, shame, compassion, resentment, communication, feeling stuck, awareness, resiliency & faith.

The TIMBo program helped me to understand the physical feeling of emotions in my body; & with meditation, yoga and mindful breathing techniques to observe these feelings. I have learned with the help of my facilitator, J. Vecchia, to be more compassionate to myself as well as others. Her compassion towards me helped me to open up to the experience. I learned to have faith. I now have the tools to use for the rest of my life. The workbook is helpful to look back on as well.

 What our clients are saying:

J and John are awesome. They are committed to high standards! J is the perfect yoga teacher who brings balance and awareness to each class.
John’s knowledge helped me work through some major injuries. They are flexible and prices are reasonable. I feel very grateful to have found them.
It has been such a joy to work with J and John. They both have in-depth knowledge about the body and an innate understanding of the spirit. They each create a safe space where healing can occur. I’ve been experiencing some shoulder pain and stress over the last few months. Yoga sessions with J and craniosacral therapy with John have left me feeling relaxed and pain-free. I can’t recommend them enough!
Bonnie Diamond
Practicing yoga with J, I walk out a better person. With over 20 years doing yoga, the past five with J, I can attest that what endears me to J as a yogi and teacher is her classes’ interweaving the yoga good for my body with the spiritual coaching good for my soul, making my Saturday mornings with her like trans-denominational church: unique among so many modern yoga classes that have become purely physical. Too, I appreciate J’s sagacity. In a valley replete with yoga teachers, many young, this lady’s been around: she’s a retired civil rights lawyer, a highly-trained yogi, an experienced mom, a survivor of tough times, and an adventurer of the heart. She has much wisdom and expertise to share for those ready for more than your typical yoga class.
Jenn Dorfield, South Hadley
After years of living in pain with temporal mandible joint disfunction (“TMJD”), and spending money and time at various doctors, I continued to be in pain.  Even though I was treated by my general practitioner, physical therapists, a regular dentist and a dentist who specialized in jaw problems, it was unsuccessful & I did not get any relief from my pain. It wasn’t until I saw John for CranioSacral Therapy that I am finally Pain Free! Thank you John!
Holly Fidrych
I am grateful to be a client of John’s for many years… He is a superb clinician-professional, caring, knowledgeable with steady, intuitive healing energy. I enjoy John’s deep tissue massage and focus on stressed areas of my body. He is very perceptive and skillful at releasing parts of my body that are misaligned and/or in pain. Over the years, John’s skillful hands have helped me tremendously with healing herniated discs, a torn rotator cuff and a detached bicep. After each treatment, I leave feeling amazed!
