It’s easy to find yoga, it’s not as easy to find yoga specifically for those on a healing journey. So much of the popular yoga out there emphasizes power, intensity and sculpting.
In short…with Yoga for Healing you will: build strength, enhance joint movement, gain flexibility AND relax, modify and take things at your pace.
Hello, I’m excited you are here! I started yoga in an effort to relieve constant stress, challenge myself to be present and to confront the incessant mind chatter. (Sound familiar?)
I went through my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training in power vinyasa during a period in life when I was extremely physically fit, and yoga soon became another physical challenge I was eager to take on. Handstands, advanced postures, dozens of chaturangas and Yoga Sculpt (yoga with weights).
Then things changed…The hormonal imbalances I had been trying to heal became even more heightened and my health took a sharp turn. Every day was filled with deep fatigue, debilitating depression and physical pains.
Life changed. It seemed like overnight.
Unable to do the yoga I was accustomed to, especially as an instructor, brought on feelings of shame. Then I decided to shift my focus and sought out gentle classes, but they were so hard to find! When I did find them it seemed they were all geared toward the older generation. It seemed there was yoga for older people (gentle) and yoga for young people (power)…something was missing.
I dove deep into the exploration of yoga beyond vinyasa taking classes all over the country from dozens of new teachers to create Yoga for Healing.
I know the road to recovery can feel lonely, but you are not alone. Let’s take another step toward healing together.
