The Evolution of Becoming Your Authentic Self

Listening to the inner whispers of the body, we begin to hear the ebb and flow of its language. Everything is connected.

As we open up to the whispers,  we can address dysfunctional patterns. Through improved body mechanics, breath,  and mindfulness, the body can move more efficiently, become more at ease, the mind becomes focused, and we find well-being.

Yoga Therapy

Finding Ease, Balance, and Connection

Yoga therapy allows the healing space to co-create a practice to help create a set of tools unique to each individual. Becoming aware and finding our true selves is not an easy journey. Societal and familial expectations can cloud our vision of who we are, what makes us happy, and how to live our most authentic lives. Living an incongruent life can manifest itself in different ways. Dis-ease enters our lives in multiple ways, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I use multiple modalities to help clients find ease, balance, and connection in their everyday lives.

Coaching and Yoga therapy

As your coach, I will provide the tools to help you meet your goals. As we commit to breaking patterns, being mindful, listening to our inner wisdom, and opening ourselves to healthier relationships, we can create healthier relationships with ourselves and others.

Yoga therapy is a multi-layered modality that looks at the whole person. Mind, body, and spirit make up the differing parts of who we are. Yoga therapy addresses imbalances in these areas.

Addressing the physical body includes postures that help to increase strength, flexibility, and balance. Breathwork helps to achieve balance in the nervous system, mindfulness practices help to repattern the nervous system and brain. These practices can help reduce chronic pain, decrease stress, and help manage dis-ease.

Mindfulness practices, meditation, breathwork, and practices that increase awareness enlist our ability to self-reflect, become foundational in building positive, personally aware, and resourceful thinking. This allows us the ability to respond to our environment in positive ways, versus reacting to our environment without insight or awareness.

" Researchers have uncovered is yoga’s capacity to affect the nervous system by improving our ability to self-regulate. The practice uses methods that work via both the mind and the body, known in research as top-down and bottom-up regulation. Put simply, top-down regulation uses cognitive tools like meditation and ethical inquiry to affect the state of the body, whereas bottom-up regulation uses the body itself, through movement and breathing techniques, to change the state of the nervous system and to affect thoughts and emotions."

Therapeutic Classes and Workshops

By exploring yoga, breath work, and mindful practices in focused work shops, we can address the body, building a loving and nurturing relationship between the different parts of what makes us whole.  "Therapeutic yoga is defined as the application of yoga postures and practice to the treatment of health conditions and involves instruction in yogic practices and teachings to prevent reduce or alleviate structural, physiological, emotional and spiritual pain, suffering or limitations. Results from this study show that yogic practices enhance muscular strength and body flexibility, promote and improve respiratory and cardiovascular function, promote recovery from and treatment of addiction, reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain, improve sleep patterns, and enhance overall well-being and quality of life."
