When we are overly stressed, ill or injured our physical and emotional bodies become out of BALANCE. Yoga Therapy uses the ancient practices of Yoga to help you find balance, regain VITALITY and live life to its fullest.
What is Yoga Therapy?
My Yoga Therapy is based on the belief that when our mind is disconnected from the body and spirit we create holding patterns that can lead to or exacerbate existing emotional unrest, physical injuries, disease and blockages in the energy systems
Yoga Therapy is a complimentary therapy used to support healing for people with chronic or temporary conditions who are best served with an individualized yoga practice. The Yoga Therapist works one-on-one or in small groups and creates a practice specifically designed to address the needs of the student’s health concerns.
In our fast paced modern Western World people have less and less time, and they are feeling as if they have lost touch with their true nature and the World we live in. Millions of North American’s have discovered the calming and grounding effects of yoga in their emotional and physical bodies. Yoga Therapy allows students to find deeper meaning and awareness within their body, mind and soul. The true benefits of yoga as a healing practice are just beginning to take root in North America – in India Yoga has been used to heal for millennia.
An increasing numbers of studies have shown the benefits of Yoga as a complimentary therapy for an extremely wide variety of health concerns – from infertility, to aging, to cancer, to heart disease, to sports injuries, to grief, anxiety or depression. Increasingly Doctors and Therapists are recommending their patients include Yoga as part of their healing RX.

How can Yoga Therapy help?
Yoga Therapy can benefit you if you are looking for general wellbeing or have a diagnosed medical condition.
There are two main goals of Yoga Therapy. The first goal is to lessen acute physical symptoms by opening and releasing holding in the body and increasing circulation – awakening the body’s natural ability to heal. The second goal is to lessen chronic physical pain and emotional stress, such as anxiety, depression, and self-criticism. We reduce stress and chronic pain by cultivating mindfulness and the body-mind-spirit connection.
