Private Yoga Therapy
Yoga that's simple, practical, & tailored to your needs !
Working with me is for YOU if...
...you're truly looking for a holistic approach that takes into account the entirety of your experience: physically, mentally,
emotionally, and spiritually.
Additionally, if you would like to address discomfort associated with a certain diagnosis, treatment, or the loss of function as the result of a specific disease state or condition.
You may be drawn to yoga therapy for one of two reasons:
Due to benefiting from a previous yoga practice but now you want to address a specific health condition beyond what a generalized yoga class can offer.
You may have never done yoga previously but are seeking a safe and natural approach to achieving optimal health and well-being.
Modern scientific evidence suggest that yoga therapy may be effective for a wide range of conditions including: muscular and joint pain, chronic pain, inflammatory and immune conditions, emotional balance, mood regulation, and neurological conditions to name a few.
Give me some relief already!
If you're like many of my clients, you may reflect back on your past and wonder if you could experience the same sense of vitality that you once felt.
You remember being able to move better, you had less pain, more mental clarity, and more balance overall.
You may have experienced some pain but you bounced back rather easily.
Now, in this current phase of your life, you just want some relief from your stubborn pain.
You believe that experiencing less pain is possible and you've likely tried everything your physician has asked you to do but nothing has changed so you're wondering what more you can do.
You need a personalized practice.
A nice deep breath; a moment of pause.
A place to slow down.
The fact is, creating an intentional space for self-care can and will help you achieve greater health, well-being, and vitality.
When you give yourself some space, some time to settle, some time to just be, things begin shifting in subtle yet profound ways; I have experienced this personally and I know the same can happen for you.
The key to this happening is getting the support you need.
You've likely acknowledged that doing things your way isn't working, so it's time to get the support that you desire so that you can move
toward achieving your health goals.
You can call me your personal self-care coach/advocate or yoga therapist, whatever your prefer.
The point is, I will be here for you through it all; we will create a lasting therapeutic partnership.
In this therapeutic space, we will journey together into a place of wholeness, possibility, ease, and transformation!
How It Works...
I work privately with individuals' both in-person and/or online who are tired of maintaining the status-quo; they want to dig down deep and do the work necessary to transform their lives for the better.
A frequent metaphor among Buddhist practitioners is: No mud, no lotus.
In other words, experiencing the muck is part of flourishing.
As your personal yoga therapist, my ultimate goal for you is to feel better so you can not only live well but thrive!
Now, you may be wondering...
"What's the difference between a yoga class and private yoga therapy?"
Great! I'm glad you asked...
As a yoga therapist, I use the same practices of yoga that a yoga teacher teaches but apply them in an individualized manner for a specific therapeutic purpose and to achieve a specific therapeutic result.
Public yoga classes are great for generalized health and well-being, though private yoga therapy sessions go much deeper and are completely tailored to your individual needs, goals, and intentions.
As a result of this personalized approach, you may experience the relief of symptoms, a higher level of daily functioning, and a greater sense of ease and well-being.
In our sessions together, I may recommend mindful movement, breath practices, mindfulness practices, meditation, specific exercises for addressing areas of discomfort or imbalance, and various approaches to better work with the mind and emotions.
Our work together will begin with a complimentary 30-minute pre-yoga therapy consultation.
This pre-consultation will allow us to get to know each other and make sure that we are a good fit for one another. In this session, we will discuss your goals, review the client contract, answer any questions or concerns that you may have, and you will experience a brief private yoga practice.
Following your pre-consultation...
...we will set up your first appointment where we will thoroughly review your medical history, presenting condition(s), and perform and array of assessments designed to pinpoint any physical, energetic, and emotional imbalances.
Follow-up sessions will consist of a combination of private yoga sessions and private yoga therapy sessions, each is 60-minutes--private yoga sessions are similar to a group yoga class and compliment the specific therapeutic work done
in your yoga therapy sessions.
In order to receive the maximum benefits of this practice and of our work together, you are encouraged to create a space in your home that is free of distractions and practice with consistency, curiosity, and sincerity.
