Fresh Approach

Are there days when you wonder why do I have constant pain in my _____ (fill in body part) after years of treatment, or “I’m falling apart”? or "Should I wait until I retire to deal with it?"

If you can relate, I would love to work with you!  Don’t wait until it’s too late.  Therapeutic yoga is highly personalized and tailored to each person.  Pain is complex – the same pain may arise from different causes.  Based on the principles of yoga – breath, stillness and movement – open your eyes to what is possible in a caring and supportive place.  Through exploration and discovery, the root of the problem will reveal itself.

If you listen to your body when it whispers, you won’t have to hear it scream.

Have you heard your doctor say “well you’re getting old – it’s part of aging.  You need to just deal with it”?

Or, I don’t want to take this medication because of the scary side effects.

Isn’t there a natural or holistic option?

Yes, this modality may be the solution for you.   It starts where you are at and what is present.  Develop an awareness of your mind/body, physiological, emotional and spiritual pain.  It’s most effective when there are multiple underlying ailments.  Learn to care gently for yourself – build resiliency, agility, and knowledge about your body as you move through life.
