"The body speaks what words cannot."
WHAT IS YOGA THERAPY?
Yoga Therapy comes from the lens of the whole-person when working towards health and wellbeing. It emphasizes the mind-body-environment relationship and aims to support individuals in finding MBE balance through practices such as asana, movement, pranayama, meditation, chanting, visualization, lifestyle and proper nutrition. Through these practices you develop tools to live in the world in a more embodied, present and connected way.
WHAT IS SOMATIC EXPERIENCING?
Somatic Experiencing is a body-based approach to healing from unmanaged stress and trauma. SE was developed by Peter Levine and emphasizes a bottom up approach to healing. SE works with the physiology of the body in order to complete incomplete defensive responses, unlock thwarted survival energy, work with healthy aggression, develop healthy boundaries, build a sense of self empowerment and reconnect to your life force energy and essential self.
INDIVIDUAL SESSION: ADULT
1:1 Individualized Yoga Therapy and Somatic Experiencing sessions are tailored to meet your specific physical, mental, emotional and nervous system needs. Through embodied practices, we'll work collaboratively to reconnect to your body in a safe and titrated way, to tap into healthy aggression, explore healthy boundaries, recover from unmanaged stress and trauma and restore your inner vitality and connection to your essential self.
INDIVIDUAL SESSION: CHILD OR TEEN
I work with children and teens with diverse needs including neurodiversity, disability, sensory processing challenges, motor impairments, health issues, anxiety, depression and trauma. I serve as a co-regulator and supportive facilitator in helping your child learn tools to connect to their bodies, manage big emotions, self-regulate, recover from stress and trauma and build capacity and resilience. My aim is in helping children and teens build self-esteem, self-love and self-agency so they can pilot their own planes and move through the world with more confidence, curiosity and connection.
