Yoga Therapy and meditation help people remember their natural state: calmness and peace. Ancient Yogic practices, modernized, cultivate personal awareness, show us how to be good people and expand our spiritual potential through relaxation.
To remember that we contain within our consciousness a center where nothing ever changes, an infinite or undivided bliss, known by many names – this is the awareness that Yoga brings. We are not the weather patterns. We are the watcher. When witnessing becomes familiar, it is frees us from fear, stress and anxiety.
I help people recognize their innate healing resources. My clients transform their lives by attunement with their own sense of inner wisdom, spirituality and integrity. I am a trauma survivor who boldly proclaims that Yoga changed my life, my body and my mind, and that Yoga can do the same for you.
Self-regulation is possible and is the best kind of lifestyle management. Traumatic stress, anxiety, depression and other types of dysregulation can be balanced without medications or in concert with them. With practice, profound inner shifts renew one’s engagement with life, refreshing one’s attitude and energy. Spiritual emergence and emergency can become comfortable, enjoyable, informative and integrative.
Control and power over our lives are reinstated by learning to direct our energy in positive ways. We can shift mood, body temperature, identification with pain and more at will.
Raja Yoga (meditation), yamaniyamas (ethical principles), Hatha Yoga (exercise), Yoga nidra (relaxed stillness between wakefulness and sleep), and Ayurveda (wholesome living) return practitioners to peace.
