My yoga therapy practice integrates techinques of bioenergetics suchas grounding, breath-work, meditation, visualization, and body movements from yoga and somatics to release tension or holding in the body. From this place of release, we work to re-frame the automatic thinking and repetitive responses. It is a dynamic process and one which requires active participation and feedback in each session. I find the work empowering to my clients and provides them an expanded vocabulary for self-awareness, communication, and creating effective action and intimacy in their lives. The practice is meant to inspire clients to look beyond “fixing” and immediate solutions, to creating a new foundation from which they can cultivate deeper meaning and direction throughout their lives.
My practice is inspired by the writing and instruction of Dr. Rick Hanson, Buddha Brain, Dr. Peter Levine, Walking the Tiger: Healing Trauma; Dr. Anodea Judith, Eastern Body Western Mind; and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, Sensing, Feeling, and Action.
