Yoga Therapy is a holistic and individualized application of the principles of the eight limbs of yoga. It increases ease and reduces stress by integrating one's experience of body, mind, emotions and purpose.
Private/individual sessions: During the first session, we'll get to know each other. It includes a thorough, interactive assessment of your personal goals and needs, challenges and strengths . Sessions which follow this initial assessment are carefully designed to support progress toward your identified personal goals in an effective, incremental way that can lead to lasting change. This is a mutual process in which I work with you to explore and discover what approaches serve you most effectively.
A typical session may include some or all of the following:
active or restorative hatha yoga poses (asanas)
breathing practices (pranayama)
body awareness exercises
guided imagery and/or meditation exercises
recommendations for home practice
discussion of progress, issues that may arise out of the practice and modifications of practices as needed
