Yoga Therapy

Simply put, “Yoga + Therapy = Balance”. Yoga is perhaps the oldest modality of somatic psychology and it has truly stood the test of time. Modern Western research supports its many benefits in treating a wide variety of ailments and conditions that impact our mind, body, energy, and spirit. My intention for these one-on-one sessions is for you, the client, to establish a deeper appreciation for your TRUE SELF.


My Approach

My approach in Yoga Therapy is to first meet with you for an initial assessment where we discuss the presenting issue such as anxiety, stress, body image, substance use, grief, loss, and other issues, and establish specific physical, emotional and energetic goals.

I offer you a thorough and efficient intake health assessment before working collaboratively with you to establish goals. I treat you with full acceptance and non-judgmental kindness. I offer you supportive coaching through Pranayama breathwork, a series of traditional poses (asana) and a final relaxation. I may recommend other traditional yoga therapy practices including stress reduction techniques such as Yoga Nidra, guided imagery meditation, and Shatkarma, the six methods of cleansing the body.

My Sessions

A typical session is 75 minutes, which allows time to engage in a therapeutic discussion as well as guidance and coaching of the yoga practice. By combining the traditional philosophies and exercise of yoga with current evidenced-based and strengths-based psychotherapy, I encourage each client to find balance in their lives and tap into the true healing powers that reside within. Sound healing can also be introduced into the session through the use of Tibetan singing bowls and chakra-aligning crystal bowls. If you haven’t yet experienced a sound bath, this might be one way you are able to integrate the various parts of self and feel more grounded and centered.
