Yoga designed as a deep connection to the layers of the self as a means of healing. Therapeutic yoga is taught beyond the 200hr level and involves extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology, as well as the subtle layers of the emotional and energetic body. The yoga therapist creates a personalized practice using yogic principles as a medium to connect mind to body. A personalized practice helps you to facilitate a stronger connection with yourself and introduces you to new ways to actively participate in your journey to health and happiness.
Yogic teaching does not discriminate but yoga poses do. Adaptive yoga teaches the body from the inside out, instead of the outside inward. The principles of yoga regarding unity are readily applied to all people living with disability because as BKS Iyengar said, all you need to do yoga is a center of gravity and a sense of direction.
Restorative Thai Bodyworks
A specialized Restorative Yoga session where the client is fully supported by bolsters and blankets. We use weight at times to calm the nervous system and reduce anxiety. Essential oils help to increase relaxation and Thai body work helps to decompress the joints giving a feeling of lightness to the whole body. As the client releases tension from the body, the mind is able to dissolve stress that may reduce our coping skills, create anxiousness and insomnia, and depress our immune system. The overall affect is a lasting one that will give you a cool, calm disposition as you move about your day
Yoga Nidra means “yogic sleep” and is among the deepest possible states of relaxation while still maintaining full consciousness. It is in a state in which the body is systematically relaxed and by following verbal instruction, the practitioner becomes increasingly aware of inner sensations. It has been shown to reduce tension, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, and many other ailments that prevent healing and repair of the mind-body connection.
There are many ways to meditate but it sometimes seems like we are doing it wrong or we just can’t seem to sit with our thoughts.

A simple 10-15 minutes a day can improve your mood and significantly reduce stress.
