Yoga for the Soul
Hi! My name is Maddie (aka Evelyn Madison). I founded EMPower Yoga Therapy & Wellness Services based on my passion for PEOPLE & YOGA.
I am a licensed Yoga Therapist, Mental Health Advocate, Wellness Educator, and Pregnancy & Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist.
I discovered yoga as a healing tool in 2014 after a lifelong struggle with mental health issues and mystery illnesses like Lyme disease.
I was diagnosed with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) at a very young age, which presented me with many challenges. My greatest challenge came along after graduating from college in 2014. I was battling anxiety and all the unpleasant symptoms that come as a result of a tired mind (chronic fatigue, depression, etc.). I was totally depleted.
My suffering has brought me the greatest gift, which is to help others heal. It is my life’s work.
Over the years, I discovered how to manage my anxiety and re-wire my brain. The transformation was so powerful that it led me to pursue Yoga Therapy training to help others find calm.
I also started a blog in hopes of helping others alleviate racing thoughts and anxieties through natural healing tools. Let me show you how!
My goal for my clients is to provide them with healthy tools to improve their overall condition, form wholesome habits and ultimately transform their lifestyle.
My approach to yoga therapy takes the whole individual into account. This means I assess each client from a mind, body, and spirit perspective, examining their lifestyle habits, belief systems, and imbalances.
This approach helps me to identify and create a holistic healing plan. Yoga Therapy is a complementary form of therapy (CAM)
I specialize in chronic stress, anxiety & depression, mental health strategies for youth & adults, and pregnancy and postpartum recovery. I also practice women's wellness and assist women in losing weight and recovering from pain and discomfort during pregnancy and postpartum.
As a certified Yoga Therapist through the International Association of Yoga Therapists and Health Coach, I specialize in helping those with issues related to stress, such as anxiety & depression. I work with all age groups and genders and also have a specialization in helping women with postpartum recovery and postpartum anxiety & depression.
I have experience facilitating alternative forms of healing through yoga therapy and coaching in the clinical setting. I also create and lead private workshops and seminars to accommodate larger groups. Find out more.
My overall goal is to educate and empower my clients to have the tools they need for optimal wellness and balance in the mind, body, & spirit.
