Yoga Therapy blends gentle assisted and non-assisted yoga postures, breath and meditative facilitation to create a safe and supportive environment where individuals can address both their physical symptoms (stiffness, constriction, tightness and pain) and the underlying issues that often contribute to or exacerbate the visible symptoms.
Yoga Therapy is a holistic approach with the intent to align the body, mind, and spirit, and is effective for those recovering from or living with injury, pain, illness or trauma.
Each experience is different based on individual needs, concerns and intentions.
Here are a few benefits:
"Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the teachings and practices of Yoga."
Foundation Training is a safe and effective program created to address poor movement patterns that lead to common back pain and many other chronic ailments we
commonly see today.
The simple and transformative exercises used are designed to naturally strengthen
and restore balance and stability.
By focusing on decompressing the spine and retraining the body to move more efficiently and effectively, individuals learn to counteract the effects of our sit-centric society and are experiencing relief from pain.
Rather than relying on joints and ligaments, people are taught to engage their larger muscles groups to propel movement and use gravity to their advantage. They become stronger
and more confident.
Not only do people feel better, they see improvement in performance and are engaging in daily and extracurricular activities they once thought were no longer possible.
Foundation Training is accessible
and can be done anywhere and
*No equipment necessary.
Learn how to stand tall, use the body the way nature intended, and feel good.
Relieve Pain. Optimize Performance.
And get the most out of your life.
In a world where stress seems to be the norm, people are struggling with sleep deprivation, time management, relationships, and even find the connection between perception and reality a bit skewed. Where does one turn?
Using an ancient technique called Yoga Nidra, people are discovering relief, respite, and a chance to recover and reconnect. This practice is simple yet quite profound and is shown to be highly effective in training the mind to access its natural well of creativity, problem solving, memory faculty, and learning abilities.
Yoga Nidra offers space to explore what is needed in the moment, as well as an opportunity to effortlessly release tension and held emotions that often contribute to dis-ease in the body-mind complex.
As the body relaxes and the mind quiets, one is able to enter deeper brainwave states, giving the body a chance to rest and experience a sense of peace and well being.
*No yoga experience needed.
From the moment I stepped onto the yoga mat, I knew I had stumbled onto something pretty amazing. Not only was I able to find my way out of chronic pain and stress, I learned that this ancient practice offered much more than just creating shapes on the mat. It gave me respite, peace, overall health and well being from head to toe, and a way home through simple and powerful techniques found in traditional yoga and yoga therapy which include breath work, mindfulness and meditation.
Later I was introduced to Foundation Training, a program developed by Dr. Eric Goodman. This program taught me how to stabilize the spine, re-balance my body and develop proper and functional movement patterns that literally changed how I move in life and in the world.
Inspired by my mentors and teachers and grateful for the holistic benefits I was seeing and feeling in my own body, mind and heart, I chose to step out of the conventional business world and became certified to teach and share what I have learned (and am learning) with others.
These transformational practices have provided a frame work from which I operate in all my private sessions, classes, and in life. My teaching style is eclectic, as I meet people where they are at in the moment. There is no one-size fits all.
Bringing with me my personal experience and my faith in God, my intention is to offer quality, experiential classes that provide insight into movement, along with practical life applications, refreshment, empowerment and inspiration.
Sharing the gift of movement is my passion, and time spent with others moving, breathing and just being brings me great joy.
