YOGA

Along with offering Integrative Therapy, Summer approaches Yoga with the same inclusiveness and understanding that Yoga truly fits all. Practicing Yoga with Summer is an adventure into deeper Self exploration, through the body, breath, mind and Spirit. Sri T. Krishnamacharya said it best “Yoga is the process of replacing old patterns with new and more appropriate ones.” Summer teaches all levels, from beginner to advanced through a dynamic process flowing with the breath from movement to movement. Summer’s teaching style is based on years of experience and her natural ability to lead and guide others. Summer offers private Yoga sessions for individuals and groups. Examples of private events include; wedding parties, teaching in schools (preschool-high school), sports training, private sessions for friends and families, reunions, summer camps, prenatal/postnatal and professional conferences! Summer teaches weekly classes and special workshops in Red Lodge, MT. For more information on local classes and workshops visit Sunshine Yoga.

iRest Yoga Nidra Meditation

Based from the ancient teachings of Yoga Nidra, Richard C. Miller, Ph.D, Clinical Psychologist, developed the modern practice of iRest, Integrative Restoration. iRest Meditation is an integrative, evidence based practice that brings healing physically, psychologically, emotionally and spiritually. iRest offers tools for a greater sense of ease and well-being, even in the most difficult of times. It provides you with resources for deep relaxation, stress management, increased resiliency, improved relationships and allows you to gain mastery and control within your life. It offers lasting relief from suffering and releases unhealthy patterning that creates mental/emotional distress such as anxiety, depression, fear, and insomnia.

iRest has been clinically proven to help heal PTSD. Current research with the U.S. military has shown iRest Yoga Nidra to be as, or more, effective than any intervention (including medication) for veterans returning from war zones with PTSD. iRest is easy, safe and can be used with any age or population. This lying down, guided meditation restores the mind-body connection for all who practice it. Creating a deeper awareness and positive states of Being, iRest supports you to live with a greater sense of purpose and connection with yourself and others!

Integrative Psychotherapy

Healing is a process that unfolds with deeper awareness, attention and patience. Healing is not always something that comes with time and definitely not something we can always do by ourselves; sometimes we all need guidance, support and understanding to help heal what is out of balance, causing suffering and ultimately holding us back from our greatest potential. Agami Karma Therapy honors this process of deep and lasting healing. Using an eclectic approach to Psychotherapy, Agami Karma takes into account many views of human functioning such as; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Focused Therapy, Breath Therapy, iRest Meditation, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Yoga Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Family Therapy. Agami Karma Therapy guides the individual into self-empowerment, self-understanding, self-acceptance, and HEALING.

The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.

"Over the past few years, I have suffered from seasonal depression and the occasional physical symptoms from stress, but in early spring 2015, I began experiencing anxiety attacks that would wake me with racing heartbeat, shortness of breath and, sometimes, irregular heartbeat. They occurred no more than once every few weeks, so I didn’t feel much concern. Then, in late spring I experienced a sudden family death followed a month later by my wife’s serious medical problems resulting in an eleven-day stay in ICU and much of the summer in the hospital. She came home in early September, but faced a long recovery. During this time, I felt some of the effects of stress and anxiety, but didn’t realize the toll it was taking on me. Suddenly, in late October I began experiencing frequent anxiety attacks not only at night, but during the day. A health care provider at Beartooth Billings Clinic prescribed an anti-depressant, but also suggested I try Yoga Therapy. I am in my mid-sixties and was already beginning to consider Yoga as a way to preserve my physical strength and agility as I aged, so I was open to the suggestion. One of the names I was given was Summer Peterson, who, as it turned out, is a professional counselor, as well as an accredited yoga instructor. Her method mixes traditional counseling with Yoga practices and meditation. Since beginning to see Summer in November, first weekly, then bi-weekly, I have experienced amazing improvement. I realize that the anti-depressant gives me a more comfortable baseline, but I found that Summer’s combination of physical Yoga practices, breathing exercises and meditation, both in session and done at home, have been transformative. I have become a calmer person, more patient with my family and our dogs and I am enjoying my new physical flexibility. I was pretty skeptical of the benefits of Yoga beyond the physical, but no longer. Summer Peterson is a beautiful person and an amazing Yoga instructor and counselor. I have been recommending her to my friends and family and I believe that Red Lodge is quite fortunate to have her."

"I am a 48-year old male, suffering from lifelong Schizoaffective Disorder and associated alcoholism as a means of self-medication. After 18 years of searching for a solution- talking to many different psychologists and psychiatrists, many whom were insensitive and incompetent- Summer Peterson was my salvation. It is rare in life, when knowledge, understanding, caring, compassion and competence all combine into a single person. That is Summer. That is her practice. That is her skill. That is her passion. She will understand your struggles. You will have solutions. Her Yoga and Meditation approach to mental and emotional health is on the cutting edge of science. I can tell you it works. I can tell you that she is totally proficient at the practice, as well as being a beautiful person with a beautiful soul. If you are like me, disenchanted with what traditional psychology/psychiatry offers, I encourage you to try Summer’s approach. Appreciate her passion, her caring, her knowledge. You will see positive results."

"I am a very active 60 year old female who began private yoga instruction with Summer out of frustration with increased limitation in my range of motion in particular joints and chronic joint pain of 14 years. With a background in physical therapy and in search of a yoga program to practice on my own, I wanted a yoga instructor willing to explain which muscles are the focus with every movement/position and one who would be understanding of my personal limitations. I find Summer’s patient approach to be extremely well thought out and considerate of my abilities. Through demonstration and dialogue, she has helped me become far more aware of the subtleties of my body’s response to what I’m asking it to do; of how to breath properly and listen to my body as I move through yoga positions. She has provided a personal yoga program I can practice privately, which, through practice, has increased my range of motion in specific joints where I was losing motion, and has increased my overall strength and ease of movement. Summer is very willing to discuss any personal concerns and is genuinely giving with her wealth of knowledge about our bodies and how to practice yoga to reduce pain while improving motion."
