What is therapeutic yoga?
In private and small group sessions, I offer breathing, movement, and meditation experiences to enhance body awareness and/or address specific conditions or issues. The tools I offer include but are not limited to breath-linked movement, breath awareness and breathing exercises, yoga poses, and meditation. I do not diagnose or treat medical conditions; rather, I hope the tools offered inspire and empower clients to find and embrace the wholeness and sense of well-being already available within. If combined with English teaching, I lead clients to voice the experience of movement and internal sensations in English.
