Integrative Yoga Therapy
We offer private integrated yoga therapy for a wide range of needs, from physical issues to stress reduction, from autoimmune disease to back pain, and scoliosis. With the guidance of a certified yoga therapist with over 1,000 hours of formal education combined with nursing, holistic and mind body education, groups & individual clients benefit in gaining knowledge and skills from many pathways to healing.
Based in the ancient traditions of yoga, clients are able to create a holistic practice that addresses healing on all levels: physical, energetic, emotional, psychological and spiritual. Working with each individual on their personal goals, yoga therapy will empower individuals to progress towards improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of yoga. The healing tools of breath and body practices, meditation and visualization are used to develop a personal program to meet the unique needs of a client. Practices are designed over several sessions and can be recorded for personal use.

Senior Centers, Cancer Centers, Schools, Adaptive Sports Associations are some of the venues that have engaged us in adaptive yoga programs.
Reiki is an ancient Japanese system for healing of self and others. The Japanese word reiki can be translated as “universal or spiritually-guided life force” and the Usui System is a way of working with reiki for healing of self and others. The client receives reiki treatments fully clothed in a lying or seated position, with hands placed on chakra centers or areas of need.
