Summer 2020: Women's Climbing Therapy Group
Rock climbing is a full-body therapeutic activity that focuses on joining the mind with your movement and moods. This rock climbing group uses mindfulness and rock climbing to decreases symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD and relational trouble.
Beginning in TBA (Due to the pandemic,) this once weekly (for 8 weeks) climbing group teaches mindfulness and basic rock climbing skills in the context of a women's only social group.
Our rock climbing programs focus on the way women learn, connect with each other and with the environment. We practice mindfulness and create a supportive environment which allows you to work through the tough stuff and have as much fun as possible. Groups are limited in size and always fill up. If you are interested, reserve your spot now! Payment options available - just reach out!

A different way to climb...
"I grew up in the Springs and have seen people climbing those rocks at Garden of the Gods since I was little. Although I'd been to a climbing gym once or twice, it never occurred to me that I'd be able to really climb. And then Sarah told me about this group and... it has genuinely changed my life. I have so much more confidence in myself, I'm proud of myself for a physical accomplishment, which is really new -- haha I'm not very athletic. And I've been in such a rut in life lately and not feeling motivated or like I can finish things I put my mind to... but up on the rock, I get to make the decision to continue even when it's hard, and feel the rush of getting to the top or pulling myself up by my fist (omg I love the cracks!) or even making the conscious decision to come down. It's really impacted my life in so many ways. This group, and you, and the other women in the group... it just made me see myself and the world very differently. I can't wait to continue growing and learning as a climber, and probably also building out my gear collection." - Lucy, Denver Colorado
