Yoga Therapy

Maintaining your inner peace.

Mudra Meditation

What is yoga therapy?

According to the International Association of Yoga Therapist (IAYT), yoga therapy is “the process of empowering individuals to progress towards improved health and wellbeing through the application of the teachings and practices of yoga.”

Who can benefit from yoga therapy?

Anyone looking to find relief from anxiety, increase self-love and compassion, learn how to self-resource, and want to deepen their spiritual journey.

YT sessions can be a conjunction to primary counseling if you are already working with a psychotherapist, they can be a stand alone therapeutic service meaning that you don’t need to be currently working with a therapist, or we can work together combining traditional talk therapy with somatic yoga practices.

What can I expect from a yoga therapy session?

First, a questionnaire is completed prior to us meeting so that I can gain an awareness of why you’re here and put together some thoughts of how you can start to feel sustained relief through yogic practices. These practices will meet you where you are at in your journey and comfort level. Each practice is trauma-informed meaning that you will work towards maintaining a sense of choice, autonomy and safety, through learning accessible tools to self-regulate. Some examples of these practices are physical (yoga postures that lean towards more restorative poses), energetic (breathing exercises i.e. bee’s breath for anxiety, breath of joy for depression, alternate nostril breathing for balance), grounding (meditations and visualizations i.e. body scans, happy place, yoga nidra, self-compassion), syadhyaya (introspective i.e. journaling and mudras i.e. gardua mudra to calm anxiety, or bhu mudra to ground). You will leave each session with tools to practice daily on your own. Research suggests that the most sustained benefit and relief is from consistent, routine sadhana (or practice).

YT sessions are offered in an individual or group format. Sessions are 60-90 mins in length.


Group classes include

Yoga for anxiety, yoga for depression, trauma-informed yoga, and yoga for addiction recovery.

Group classes are available upon request for your needs and/or organization/agency.
