Restore and Revitalize Yourself with Yoga!
Integrate Body, Mind, and Spirit for a Healthier You!
Welcome to the wonderful world of yoga!
Creating inner and outer balance is vital to our physical and psychological health. All too often, the physical body is treated as being separate from a person’s mind and spirit. However, research continues to affirm that the body and psyche are very much intertwined. When one aspect of the body-mind-spirit connection is out of balance, the other components are, quite naturally, deeply affected. A regular yoga practice can help you optimize your total wellbeing by bringing the body, mind, and spirit into balance and unity. Yoga fosters an increased level of self-awareness, clarity, and inner confidence that allows you to know, experience, and appreciate yourself as never before.
Yoga is for Everyone!
The practice of yoga is not confined by any particular religious or spiritual belief. Yoga—which simply means “union”—brings the opportunity to find a place of harmony and stillness within your own being. In our busy and complicated society, yoga offers a healthy and gentle respite from the hectic world. As noted by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, “Yoga is a scientific system of self-investigation, self-transformation, and self-realization that originated in India.” A balanced yoga practice offers individuals of all ages and backgrounds an opportunity to move toward greater health and unity of the body, mind, and spirit.
As a certified yoga instructor and member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists, I have found that yoga is a powerful tool in the pursuit of physical and psychological wellness. The health benefits of yoga have been acknowledged for centuries. The efficacy of yoga as part of an overall wellness program continues to be proved with contemporary research. One of the most beautiful and healing aspects of yoga is the way in which it allows us to focus on our possibilities--not on our limitations. Yoga facilitates positive thinking and peace of mind. While yoga is an excellent form of physical exercise, it is also a unique practice that provides the opportunity to discover and utilize inner capacities that foster equanimity, compassion, and peace.
Traditional Yoga Sessions
Private traditional yoga instruction offers the opportunity to explore yoga in personalized sessions. Every person has a highly individual and unique expression of yoga that unfolds over time. A customized practice allows you to deeply enjoy the well-known restorative and physical health benefits of yoga at your own pace. Sessions tailored to your individual needs enable you to evolve more consciously and dynamically. Private instruction provides greater personal attention to your unique yoga postures, alignment, and breath. You will find that a yoga practice goes beyond toning, strengthening, and relaxing the body; yoga also offers revitalization, increased mental clarity, and a greater sense of calmness.
Somatic Yoga Therapy
For those seeking relief from issues such as stress, anxiety, and depression, somatic yoga therapy offers profound psychological and physiological healing benefits. Combined with elements of traditional psychotherapy, yoga can be a highly effective therapeutic tool. By incorporating complementary strategies such as relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, and simple meditation practices, you can enjoy substantial relief through basic yoga practices. The skills you hone on your yoga mat can allow you to move through life free of the constraints of chronic anxiety, worry, and fear. By crafting and creating internal harmony, balance, and awareness, life can be more fully embraced and enjoyed.
Private, personalized sessions are available by appointment for individuals, couples, and small groups. I delight in working with all levels--beginner, intermediate, and advanced. In sessions tailored to your individual needs, you will learn to create inner power and tranquility as you breathe, stretch, and gain core strength.
Yoga instruction and yoga therapy session rates are available upon request. Individual rates begin at $95.00 per hour. Couple and group rates begin at $120.00 per hour.
