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 begin to address the dysfunctional patterns of the body. 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.
Finding Ease, Fluidity, and Connection
Yoga therapy allows the healing space to co-create a practice to help create a set of tools unique to you. Breath, mindful techniques, combined with yoga practices, help us to achieve balance in the nervous system and body, to increase our inner awareness to help find balance.
Coaching and Yoga therapy

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. " 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."
