"Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of yoga" - International Association of Yoga Therapists
"Yoga therapy is a way to heal (the often painful) misperception of separateness and accompanying emotions through the direct experience of one's innate wholeness" - Laura Marie
Private Therapeutic Sessions utilize a combination of practices from yoga (movement, poses, alignment details, breathing practices, mudras (hand-gestures), concentration exercises, meditation) and iREST combined in a myriad of ways to meet the client's individual needs. Since each client has different needs, there is no cookie-cutter look of what a session may be. An individual practice may include some, little, or no movement depending on what is called for. What each session will include is a comprehensive intake form, a chat about what your concerns and goals are and SCWIP.
S UPPORT and SAFETY - whatever you bring to a session with you, whether it is physical, emotional or spiritual, will be supported through practices that you feel safe with and with suggestions for home practices.
C HECK IN - sometimes we don't know what we want or need. Guidance will be provided to help you get in touch with your body, mind and inner self to help identify your needs.
W ELCOMING and WISDOM - a practice in itself. Guidance on how to welcome, without judgment, whatever you are experiencing. Guidance to be able to identify, experience and trust your own inner wisdom.
I NTEGRITY - I only offer practices that I am well studied and practiced in. If it becomes obvious that some other practice/practitioner may be better suited for your situation/needs, I will let you know and am happy to make referrals when possible.
P RESENCE and PRIVACY - my undivided attention and deep listening as well as guidance for you to be able to tap into your own deeper presence. Anything that you are willing to share with me during a session is a precious gift that stays in the sanctity of the session room.
