"Therapeutic yoga is not just another style of yoga. It is a way to directly address health challenges such as structural pain, problems from chronic illness and/or emotional disturbances. Private instruction is a wonderful way to bring yoga into your life."
What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy assumes each person is unique and adapts and applies Yoga techniques to help individuals based on their needs, interests, and current condition. Through our one-on-one sessions, and through a personalized home practice, my goal is to enhance your health and well-being by reducing symptoms, restoring balance, increasing self-understanding, encouraging prevention, and facilitating healing at all levels.
How can Yoga Therapy help you?
Yoga Therapy is helpful for: Structural conditions (such as back pain, hip pain, sciatica).
Physiological conditions (such as high blood pressure, Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, COPD, high blood pressure. GERD, constipation).
Emotional conditions (such as depression and anxiety).
Just to name a few, but many more are helped by the varied techniques of yoga.
What techniques are used?
Many of the tools of yoga can be incorporated: physical postures, breath exercises, relaxation, meditation, sound (chanting, mantra, prayer, humming, self-study, and lifestyle (such as diet, exercise, sleep, or stress management). Because of the self-reflective nature of the work, discussion also becomes an integral part of our time together.
What do sessions look like?
Sessions are conducted on a one-on-one basis. They are tailored to meet your special needs and a personal practice is developed to assist you in working on your own. No special equipment is required. The first appointment is approximately 2 hours with subsequent visits lasting approximately 1 hour.
Come awaken your highest self! I hope to inspire and empower you to reach your full potential, both physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, leading to a healthy, joyful, and productive life.
