What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy is a paradigm shift from our current “separatist” approach to wellness in Western Medicine. Contrary to the disempowering western belief that something is “wrong” or “missing” with us and needs to be “fixed”, Yoga Therapy stands on the foundation that there is so much inherently “right” with us and we are already “whole”. By reconnecting to our own physical, mental, and spiritual strengths, we can empower ourselves by accessing the innate healing capacity that lies within each of us. Ancient and time-tested, using Yoga as a therapeutic model is a personalized, one-on-one collaboration between the therapist and the client, to maximize the clients Health & Wellness. A Yoga Therapy program utilizes the vast array of tools available through yogic traditions, to help bring balance and harmony to ones Mind, Body and Spirit.
These tools may include but are not limited to:
- physical postures (Asana)
- specific work with the breath (pranayama)
- focus and mindfulness techniques (meditation)
- hand gestures (mudra)
- intentional language (mantra)
- ethical suggestions (yamas & niyamas)
- lifestyle suggestions (diet, activity, nature, social, personal)
- and more
The process of using Yoga as a therapeutic tool is not a “one-off” or “silver bullet” method, nor is it suggested to throw out your current approach to wellness through Western Medicine. Deciding to work with a yoga therapist is the beginning of a journey that requires dedication, commitment, and a deep desire to cultivate a sustainable way to manage ones own health and wellness. It is a path of Empowerment. It is not a promise of miraculous cures, or fantastical states of bliss, but rather an Exploration into ones embodied experience of life, a Discovery of ones highest potential, and an Awakening to perhaps, one’s healthiest, happiest life. As with all journeys worth taking, it will likely involve planning, effort, and challenges, but the rewards promise to be deep and powerful.

Yoga Therapy is not a “one-off” approach and I encourage people to sign up for several Development Sessions in order to allow for deeper work, commitment, and therefore, healing. With that in mind, I offer discounted packages which you will see reflected at the bottom of the page.
Initial Consultation $100
Two meetings: A 30 minute meeting to discuss goals, challenges, lifestyle etc and the reason you are seeking Yoga Therapy. A second, 60 minute “assessment” meeting that will explore movement, breath, ranges of motion, restrictions, and establishing a “Baseline” of where we are starting from.
Personal Development Sessions $85/hour
60 minute sessions where we begin to explore and implement the tools of yoga to meet your specific needs. Depending on your background with yoga, this may entail teaching the fundamentals of yoga movement, breath and meditation as well. Each meeting you will receive an email with detailed “take home” tools from each session to work with before our next meeting. These meetings are where we build a solid foundation from which to work and you begin to implement tools and see how they support your goals best.
Final THP Session $125
This final meeting will be approximately 60 minutes long and we will go over, in detail, your THP (Take Home Plan) that you will begin to implement into your life. This will be a THP customized to your needs/goals, designed from what we have been doing in the Personal Development Sessions and organized in the format we developed together to optimize your progress. You will have time to ask questions here and get a feel for how the Plan will flow.
Follow up Sessions $85/hour
Your THP may last you weeks, months, maybe even a year or more! When you are ready to explore new tools, revamp the current plan, or just revisit some techniques for refinement, we can meet again in these follow up sessions. The journey of Yoga is a lifelong practice that you may continue to explore and evolve on your own. And, if needed, I am always happy to walk along the path with you for awhile!
