Yoga, Movement and Meditation Studio

Class Offerings


Vanda Counseling - Terra Firma Yoga

Vanda is pleased to offer Yoga, Movement and Meditation classes at our Golden Valley location through our partnership with Terra Firma.

We are pleased to offer two groups beginning in June:

This four week series for women, taught with trauma-informed principles, will guide you through a gentle practice and offer tools designed to help manage the overwhelming feelings of anxiety. Opportunities for journaling and/or group discussion will be made available. You define what anxiety means for you, no prior experience with yoga necessary. Accessible to most. **Optional hands-on assists will be offered (permission will be requested)

In this 4 week series, we’ll create a space for participants to begin to explore sensations in their bodies and connect to their body’s inner wisdom. This group will focus on the yoga principles of balance, non-violence, and acceptance to encourage integration of our whole selves: mind, body and spirit. Participants can expect a small supportive group of women, gentle yoga postures depending on the needs of specific participants, journal activities with optional group sharing, breath practices and meditation. Completely optional use of essential oils and touch during meditation.

“Terra Firma creates a space where women can safely explore the connection between their mental and physical health, and build their own capacity for trusting the safe and solid ground beneath their feet, wherever they go.”

Our intention is to hold space for people to be with themselves in the moment. I see Terra Firma as a place free from “shoulds”—a place of choices and agency where women, trans-women and femmes are empowered and supported.”

- Sandra Maurer and Angela Zaun Ollswang, Terra Firma

WORDS From clients

  • “Darci is a wonderful therapist with an excellent skill set that is evident in the relationships she builds with her clients.  She takes the time to get to know her clients individual needs and builds appropriate treatment plans to best help them meet their goals. She is understanding and non-judgmental which helps create a safe environment for change.  Overall, I can't recommend Darci enough ”
