For your Body
Injuries, surgeries, fractures, sprains....and the fact that, the body naturally receives impact as you move along the time continuum. When this impact, force and stress is left unaddressed, one may develop restrictive movements, chronic pain, joint issues and misalignment.
For your Spirit
We often drown out our inner voice and restrain ourselves from following its wise council. LIfestyle choices, circumstances, opportunities & familial systems impact us in a myriad of ways. Quieting the outerworld to re-engage with our inner knowing and connecting to a source of energy that is abundant, brings attunement and connection.
For your Brain
The brain is our interpreter of the senses, initiator of body movement and controller of behavior. In yoga therapy we work with the 3 brains: cranial, gut & heart to explore who and what; controls thought, memory, emotion, touch, vision, breathing, hunger and every process that regulates our body.
For your Mind
A mind is more than the brain. The mind is the flow of information through the nervous system. Consciousness is experienced information flow. How we think is directly influenced by the body, the brains and the spirit. In Yoga Therapy we become curators of consciousness, developing awareness into a skill.
Why I understand what it takes to truly Heal!
After suffering miserably with Endometriosis for years and never finding resolve, when I was 19, a friend recommended Yoga. It was love at first breath. It was the first time, I found I could feel safe and good in my body and that ultimately I could influence my state of being.
I have rehabilitated 4 herniated discs, comfortably manage Endometriosis & Colitis, practice a language of nervous system regulation to thrive with CPTSD>Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
3 decades of daily practice has made me an incredibly knowledgeable teacher, using nuance and subtlety to coax, invite and soothe the parts of yourself that get pushed aside, neglected, overused and purposely forgotten as maladaptive coping mechanisms.
Healing is never one dimensional. We need adaptive strategies that evolve alongside you as you heal. That is the difference with Yoga Therapy. No cookie cutter poses or isolationist theory is used in my programs.
“As I often tell my students, the two most important phrases in therapy, as in yoga, are “Notice that” and “What happens next?” Once you start approaching your body with curiosity rather than with fear, everything shifts.”
