Yoga Therapy

Yoga Therapy aims to eliminate, reduce, and/or manage symptoms that cause suffering. It helps improve function to prevent the occurrence or reoccurrence of the root causes of illness, and supports movement towards improved health and well-being. Yoga Therapists work collaboratively with the client to develop and implement a self-empowering therapeutic plan. 

Clients will receive personalized take-home information to help support them in their practices.

Somatics

Patterns of contraction, stress, and tension become normalized over time through repetition and prolonged periods in a position. While these patterns served an initial purpose, the normalization process becomes problematic when we can no longer access or release the muscles. Simply speaking, we forget how to functionally utilize these muscles, which is called sensory motor amnesia (SMA).

While that term might sound intimidating, it is actually a bit of good news…because we can re-remember how to move with ease and freedom in our bodies.

At its foundation, Somatics is neuromuscular retraining which goes directly to the source of many musculoskeletal problems by reorganizing the way your nervous system controls and senses muscles and movement. This work is informed by the teachings of Thomas Hanna and The International Soma Yoga Institute.

TRE

Tension & Trauma Release Exercises (or TRE®) is a simple yet innovative series of exercises that assist the body in releasing deep muscular patterns of stress, tension and trauma. Created by Dr. David Berceli, PhD, TRE safely activates a natural reflex mechanism of shaking or vibrating that releases muscular tension, calming down the nervous system. When this muscular shaking/vibrating mechanism is activated in a safe and controlled environment, the body is encouraged to return back to a state of balance.
