Yoga for the Body, Mind & Soul

Your body keeps the score of whatever hurt and pain you have been through.  This means that what you have endured physically and emotionally is stored within your body.  This causes an entire host of problems to emerge.  These issues are often diagnosed as physical pain (fibromyalgia or unresolved pain), emotion pain (such as depression, anxiety and trauma) and a compromised immune system (often sick) and even addictions.  

I create personalized yoga practices for people and work with them one on one to heal. I work beyond just the physical pieces of the body to try and get to the root for deeper and more sustainable health. My tools are vast and my practices are based on 5000 years of Science. I also use the Reiki Energy work to assist the body and mind into a deeper level of healing I Love what I do and can’t wait to share it with you!

Viniyoga In Practice

Viniyoga is a form of Yoga Therapy and is based on over 500 years of science and normal developmental patterns of movement. Postures are modified to allow repetitive movement into and out of particular postures and holding postures for extended periods of time. Each movement is linked to the breath to create inner awareness and feel from the inside how the body responds to movement.

Most people are unaware of their postures and daily patterns of movement. The practice of Viniyoga brings greater awareness to the spine and breath, improving functional movement patterns and core stability. As we learn to listen to the body, transformation occurs which brings greater strength, balance, and flexibility.

The most noteworthy characteristic of Viniyoga is that the student is the most important piece of the puzzle, not the yoga. Unlike other traditions, Viniyoga becomes a set of individual tools one can turn to when they feel the need. In other traditions, a class is taught and poses are explained in great anatomical detail. The idea being that the practitioner will be able to take and hold each posture exactly or almost exactly as the posture has been explained. In Viniyoga, the posture is manipulated to fit the practitioner. Therefore, the posture serves the student rather that the other way around.
