What can I expect from a Yoga Therapy session?

Yoga Therapy focuses on client specific health issues. I meet with clients to discuss their wellness goals, review their health history and conduct an initial evaluation. The client and I work together and develop a results based program that meets their needs. This personalized approach compliments conventional medicine and with adaptive yoga practices creates a more balanced approach to daily living.

While each session is tailored to meet your needs, it will include breathing exercises, adaptive poses, relaxation techniques and/or meditation. Sessions are about an hour long and are conducted in the privacy of your home or offsite location.
