Join us for a half-day workshop designed specifically to inspire and empower you to be more balanced in your relationship with money! Through financial psychology education, yoga, and breathwork, we will help you identify any problematic beliefs or patterns around money and resource you with tools to feel empowered and abundant in your financial life.

Taught by: Lindsay Bryan-Podvin, LMSW, Financial Therapist; Carryn Lund, LMSW, RYT, Yoga Teacher; Christine O'Connor, Breathwork Healing Guide. Please direct any questions to Lindsay at lindsay@mindmoneybalance.com

We are all familiar with the stats that females make 80 cents on the dollar compared to their male counterparts and are not as likely to advocate or negotiate for ourselves. Further, we know that money can be difficult to talk about and that it can be hard to feel confident, knowledgeable, and empowered to take steps for more financial health in your life.

In this workshop, you can expect education on the psychology of finances, individual exploration of your relationship with money, clear directions on steps you can take to meet your goals, and embodied experience to help you feel empowered and abundant! The workshop will including journaling, discussion (optional sharing), yoga (no assists) to help you access feelings of power in your body, and breathwork to help you release any stuck or stale energy. We believe by aligning the emotional, physical and psychological aspects of ourselves, we expand to allow more abundance into our lives.

This workshop is open to all individuals who identify as female, ages 18+. No previous experience with yoga, breathwork, or financial psychology is needed. Come with an open mind, ready to feel inspired, empowered, and abundant!

This workshop is for you if:

  • You are 18 or older and identify as female
  • You are frustrated with your current financial reality and know you are capable of financial abundance
  • Feel “stuck” in your relationship with your finances
  • Are aware that you have some difficult emotions or behavioral patterns around emotions
  • You want to talk about money and learn
  • You are interested in learning healthy strategies for approaching your relationship with money
  • You’d love to feel empowered and inspired to meet your financial goals
  • You need guidance to kickstart your balanced money relationship

Please note that this workshop is not a great fit if you are looking for:

  • Financial/investment advice
  • Are extremely financially strained (e.g. having a hard time paying your bills)
  • You are seeking a quick solution to your money problems
  • You are not interested in yoga, breathwork, or more expansive practices

Workshop will be held at The Barn at Grechen's House, 2625 Traver Blvd, Ann Arbor. View the flyer for the workshop.

It is a group-oriented intervention designed to help people who have suffered from depression and/or anxiety, and are not currently experiencing acute symptoms.

The primary element of this group is to become acquainted with the modes of mind that often characterize depression and anxiety.
