Yoga Therapy

Yoga therapy is an individualized practice with the specific needs of the client in mind. It approaches this work from a biopsychosocial-spiritual model meeting the physical, mental, and emotional needs of the client. It is important for anyone who is looking for guidance and a plan for health and well-being. It is accessible to anyone, even (and especially) those struggling with chronic pain.

COME AS YOU ARE

Yoga Therapy is the opportunity to practice yoga no matter your situation in life. Yoga is a gift that can be accessible to anyone and everyone. It is about the importance of gaining the knowledge to access the tools needed to create ease of movement, calming of the body and mind, and possibly even alleviate the pain in life, physical and/or emotional. This is a very powerful and empowering thing if we can be gently guided in a way that allows us to find the strength within ourselves to create a life we've dreamed of. There is true freedom in that!
The goal is to help YOU find this. It exists in all of us... sometimes it's just hard to see or acknowledge on our own.

Yoga Therapy is in the Future of Medicine

Current pain science shows that yoga has surpassed opiods as an effective nonpharmacological approach to pain management, and its efficacy rate continues to increase as more research is conducted.
