Why Yoga Therapy?

You may have found that regular yoga classes are not suitable for you- too challenging or a “one-size-fits-all” approach. A Yoga Therapist will carefully and skillfully consider your individual nature, needs and level of ability. Classes and private sessions are designed to gently and compassionately teach your body and mind to unfold and stabilize. The tools of yoga, including asana, breath awareness, mindfulness and meditation, are used to help you become an active participant in your own healing process.

Extensive research has shown that yoga has beneficial effects on at least 52 medical conditions. Proven benefits include: decreased pain, anxiety and depression; increased flexibility, mobility, balance and strength and; restful sleep, increased energy and better organ function. Positive effects are long-term and ongoing when you practice tools for dealing with your daily symptoms and stresses.

The practices of Yoga Therapy calm the body and still the mind so you can rest in the stillness and vastness of your heart. When you live from this place, your physical disabilities and suffering may diminish. You may still have a disability or health condition but your relationship with your body becomes friendlier and more compassionate. The condition becomes an “AND” and ceases to define you. You may realize that “I am whole AND I have multiple sclerosis”. You gradually shift from self-judgement to friendliness and loving kindness toward yourself and begin to make more choices that move you toward joy and health.

“A note to tell you how much I have gained from my yoga experience with you over the last couple of years. The big things like asthma control and sleeping better and also many small things that have added to my life physically, emotionally and spiritually.”

“Thank you for a wonderful year of yoga. Your leadership and insight have helped me get through a very difficult time. Now I know I will not only survive but be stronger, more aware and more at peace. Yoga will be a part of my life always.”

“I am finding wellness through your open dedication of friendship in yoga. I appreciate your knowledge, guidance and loving kindness so I can paint the world with colors that never fade.”

“It is such a pleasure to come to your classes-your wonderful smiling face-your infectious laugh-then there is the “work”-always calming, soothing, healing-taking us to new realms of possibilities and understanding.”

“Thank you for your teaching. Your knowledge is vast and deep. You connect with each of your students in a personal way which gives it all the more meaning. You’ve given us a deeper understanding and solace.”

“Thank you for your guidance, kindness and patience with us. What a difference you make to our awareness!”

“I am so loving the yoga following your teachings and handouts. I’m just thrilled to feel so much better-I feel more like my old self than I have in years-over that threshold where I now have enough energy after busy days to do more physical activity which I love.”

“I will never be able to express to you how important you and your healing skills have been to me over the years. You have helped to keep me sane through some really difficult self-healing and some very hard times in my life. Thank you with all my heart.”

“You so graciously, gently and beautifully guide us. I’ve never felt so comfortable, supported and, not sure it’s the right word – ‘successful’ in any class.”

“The thing I love about experiential yoga is that once you get it in your body, you know. It’s such a joy and inspiration to be able to study with you. Thank you.”

“I found my healing when I came to you at Centerpoint Yoga Studio.”

“I am always aware of my good fortune to have you as my teacher. It is because of yoga and because of your dedicated, conscientious, centered, intelligent, compassionate and wise instruction that I have been able to regain health, hope and wisdom personally. Your teaching and heartfelt sharing of knowledge makes this a much better community.”

“Just a brief note to say thank you for your guidance over the past few years. I have enjoyed your teaching more than I can say. You have given me a glimpse of what is possible.”
