Guiding Principles OF THERAPEUTIC YOGA
Customized for you. The impact of your injury, illness, tightness, pain, strain, condition, stress, or concern is unique to you. My approach is to understand your background, assess your movement and design a yoga practice specific to helping you meet your goals and intentions.
Your body can change. It doesn’t matter how big, small, old or young you are. With the appropriate combination of exercises, movements and breathing techniques, every body can experience an improvement in function and a reduction or elimination of pain/tension and stress.
Don’t force. The less you force the faster you will get well. Those who “let go” of forcing are the ones who not only get out of pain the fastest - their strength and stability also improve the quickest.
Therapeutic Yoga is taught 1-on-1 in order to select tools from the practice of yoga under the Krishnamacharya tradition to provide the means to bring out the best in each practitioner. To do this, I require an understanding of a person's present condition, personal potential, appropriate goals and the means available. Just as every person is different, these aspects will vary with each individual...
Why 1-on-1? Meeting for a private consultation allows us me to gain a deeper understanding of who each client is an individual, to step back and see the whole person which includes a unique physiology, skeletal-muscular structure, mental thought patterns, energy level, history, experience with any trauma or addiction, dynamics of relationships and communication. In turn, I'm able to better adapt the various tools of yoga to suit your specific needs, capabilities, goals, and life circumstances.. (learn more).
