Aspiro Adventure is happy to welcome Yoga Instructor, Madlyn Edwards. Madlyn is a Utah native and a professional yoga instructor with experience teaching in-depth meditation classes. At Aspiro Madlyn conducts yoga, mindfulness and meditation sessions with students and parents, as well as facilitates training sessions on these things for guides. The mindfulness and meditation sessions are intended to promote both internal and external awareness; anxiety and stress reduction, deep reflection, and an increase in focus. Aspiro places great value on the impact that mindfulness can have on a variety of mental health struggles and is committed to teaching these techniques to clients.
Aspiro Adventure is an outdoor mental/behavioral health treatment center with a clinical model based on adventure therapy. This model focuses on introducing clients to high adventure activities in concert with an individualized clinical treatment plan. Adventure activities include skiing, rock climbing, mountain biking, and canyoneering and are paired with treatment plans drawn up by licensed mental health professionals. Included in these treatment plans, Aspiro incorporates a variety of mindfulness techniques including yoga and meditation.
Outside of the structured classes that are led by Madlyn, mindfulness is a part of each student’s daily routine. Mindfulness is inherently a personal pursuit and can take a variety of forms. Examples range from breathing exercises designed to combat anxiety to structured lessons on the subject intended to engage the body and mind. Aspiro continues to integrate mindfulness as a key component of its programming and as part of its overall mission, to break through boundaries, build awareness, and establish healthier behavioral patterns. As Aspiro’s on-staff yoga instructor, Madlyn is a key part of this process.
