Promoting Wellness - Therapeutically-oriented Yoga
Welcome to Promoting Wellness - using the tools of yoga to heal your body, mind, and spirit.  

Johanna W-Hilliard, 500 hour certified yoga teacher, uses specific yoga postures, sequences, and breath awareness to help individuals with chronic pain or limited physical mobility brought on by injury and/or chronic illness. Johanna also uses the ancient and valuable tools of yoga to help promote wellness for your emotional and mental health.  Learn how to lessen the emotional and mental distress that usually accompany injury and illness such as: stress, anxiety, fear and depression.
Since May of 2011, she has been teaching a class for sufferers of fibromyalgia and other diseases or injuries that cause chronic pain. Her students have found physical relief and emotional solace in her gentle, yet thorough practice sequences.
Since January of 2013, Johanna has been teaching yoga for The Robert Young Mental Health Center (Unity Point) in Rock Island and Moline, Illinois.  She teaches on the Adult In-patient Unit, the Adolescent Unit and on Riverside, the Substance Abuse Unit in Rock Island, and at the Partial Hospital Program in Moline.  She also teaches for the Community Support Program at the Robert Young Drop-In Center, also in Rock Island.  The latter class is available to anyone who uses that facility.
Johanna will meet with you one-on-one to assess your condition.  She will design a sequence that addresses your special physical, mental and emotional needs. This sequence can be practiced at home at your own convenience. Johanna requires that she see you for a minimum of 4 sessions within a 6 week period.  This will ensure that what she has planned for you is the most efficient and beneficial for your needs. As your needs change, your yoga practice should also change. Johanna will assist and guide you through this process.
