Yoga therapy is the professional application of the principles and practices of yoga to promote health and well-being within the therapeutic relationship that includes personalized assessment, goal setting, lifestyle management, and yoga practices for individuals or small groups. The practice of yoga therapy requires specialized training and skill development to support the relationship between the client/student and therapist and to effect positive change for the individual. As yoga therapists, we acknowledge our responsibility to create a safe environment for learning and healing for our clients/students. We are committed to conducting ourselves in a manner that is consistent with the principles of yoga. We value the ethical principles of yoga outlined by Patanjali in the first two limbs of the eight-limbed path (yama and niyama) and strive to incorporate these principles into our professional practice.

A therapeutic yoga session includes asana (postures), pranayama (breath control) and meditation. I have worked with students who are recovering from a recent surgery, in treatment or experiencing health challenges. I have also practiced with students who are struggling with life-changing disease, chronic pain and change of life circumstances due to grief, aging, and mental-health issues like depression, post traumatic stress and anxiety. The healing art of yoga works and is a practice that is accessible for every beautiful body meeting you right where you are.
International Association of Yoga Therapist (IAYT)-certified yoga therapists are committed to responsible and ethical practice. I have been a member of the IAYT since 2014 and have the great privilege to have taught 1000's of private and group therapeutic sessions to students of all all ages and body types.
Chair-based yoga offers the same benefits as traditional yoga, like boosting strength, flexibility, and mental well-being. The practice is great for older adults, people with certain health conditions, and those who work at a desk all day. You are most welcome to practice in a chair.
I currently offer live–zoom group Therapeutic classes Tuesday's at 9am, Thursday 11am and Saturday at 4pm

Yoga has always been taught in private, one-on-one meetings between the teacher and the student. This is the traditional way. Our Private Yoga Sessions are designed to help you heal and strengthen body, mind and soul. We address your specific hopes and concerns for your practice.
Home yoga practice is a wonderful, efficient and effective to begin or deepen your practice. We work at your pace and address your specific concerns, goals and hopes in the privacy and comfort of your own home.
I can come to you if your near-by or we can schedule a live zoom session at a time that is convenient for you.
