Our Anchorage studio on G street is available for individual and small group sessions. If you own a business or studio within the Anchorage area, then we’re happy to come to you for consultations. We also offer online teleconference options for those who don’t live nearby.
We interweave evidence-based, professional counseling with positive psychology, neuroscience, and optimum wellness practices, including yoga, meditation, and breathwork. We work with clients from all walks of life and are particularly passionate about offering mindfulness therapy to anyone experiencing symptoms of burnout or compassion fatigue.
If you need someone to talk to, believe you have a diagnosable mental or emotional health condition, or have experienced trauma on any scale – then you’re a candidate for holistic therapy sessions.
We do accept all major forms of health insurance. Search “Yoga for Mental Health” or “Margi Clifford” in your insurance database to see if we’re in your network or call our office at 1-907-277-YOGA and we’ll check for you.
Health and Wellness Coaching
“Margi did a great job of helping me pick yoga exercises and positions that were comfortable for me to do with my rheumatoid arthritis. She made it fun and easy!”
Wellness coaching is for individuals who want to establish healthier daily habits. It’s not a form of therapy. Therefore, it’s best-suited for clients who do not have a diagnosable mental or emotional health condition or are already working with a licensed professional. Coaching offers a gentle nudge and a compassionate guide on your journey to optimum health. (This service is not billable to health insurance.)
Instead, it includes:
- Personalized yoga practices built around your unique physical and mental state.
- Assignments and goal setting tailored to your personal schedule and long-term goals.
- Healthy, seasonal recipes for a well-rounded diet.
- Gentle accountability to help you stay on track.
- Meditation and mindfulness exercises to establish greater clarity and peace of mind.
- Proven therapeutic techniques for maintaining healthier habits.
- Mentorship and coaching to help you find your soul’s path.
- Help establishing healthy boundaries to prevent burnout and make space for personal development.
- Options for peer-to-peer connections and support.
- Regular contact with a coach
$125 for a 45-minute consultation.
$2,500 for a 3-month package, which includes 10 hours of direct contact with your coach.
*To give our coaching clients our utmost attention, we accept a very limited number of new coaching clients per season.
